The software company NEOFECT offers technology that seeks to improve accessibility for people who have suffered strokes, and its RAPAEL Smart Glove will be available to rent for people in recovery.
The system comes in the form of a wearable device that fits like a glove over the hand, and aids wearers in tasks such as chopping food and playing games, customizes an exercise schedule based on data analysis, and adjusts the difficulty levels of games based on individual performance. Patients can wear the RAPAEL Smart Glove once or twice a day for 30 minute sessions to improve their cognitive and physical abilities. The homecare version of the system will allow people to rent the glove and its associated monitor for $99 a month.
This recovery system is highly affordable and accessible for people who are dealing with limited cognitive and physical functioning and could drastically improve their mental and physical health.
