A group of scientists and engineers led by Wroclaw University of Technology's Eliza Wrobel have come up with an innovative hand-worn orthosis that is designed to make rehabilitation quicker, easier and more efficient for patients suffering from mild paresis, a disease that results in impaired movements.

This 3D-printed wearable device is designed to be exceptionally light and comfortable. Not only does this make things more palatable for the patient on a day to day basis as they go about their rehabilitation program, but it also ensures that the patient's hand is not damaged in any way.

Ultimately, this orthosis is unique in that it can be worn by patients even as they go about their physical activities, something that ensures better rehabilitation and long-term outcomes.
