NeoMano Robotic Glove can Help Paralyzed Hands to Hold Grip Again

The glove helps people suffering from spinal cord injury to perform daily tasks such as holding a cup or brushing their teeth.

A new robotic glove NeoMano is developed to assist help suffering from spinal cord injuries to regain use of their hand. A spinal cord injury have lasting effect on the quality of the life. It is characterized by symptoms such as pain and numbness or even paralysis. After the popularity of the Rapael Smart Glove, Neofect received interest from people with hand paralysis.

Neofect, a Korean company known for rehabilitation tools such as the Rapael Smart Board and the Rapael Smart Glove, showcased a prototype of the NeoMano at CES 2018. It has titanium wires, which help to move those three fingers to perform tasks such as picking up a glass, holding a toothbrush or gripping a door knob. The glove is made of lather and looks a bit like an archery glove that covers just the thumb, index, and middle finger. The NeoMano has a controller with two settings: grip, which steadily curls your fingers around an object and release, which extends the fingers back to a resting position.

According to Rehabilitation Products Market report published by Coherent Market Insights, rehabilitation involves personalized healthcare used for to maintaining, improving, or restoring health conditions. In the conventional sense, rehabilitation assists a person achieve greater control of their own health after injury, surgery, or illness. Since the Smart Glove was built for stroke patients, the company decided to create an entirely new glove specifically for people with spinal cord injuries. The NeoMano will seek funding through a Kickstarter campaign in the spring and is expected to be available later this 2018.
