How Neofect is using wearables to change physical therapy #WearableWednesday

29893 031e7967ae2c2b0665dbb4a931b78499

This device is gamifying physical therapy with a wearable.

Via Wearable:

One of the primary ways to regain mobility lost due to a stroke is physical therapy, and Neofect, based in Burlingame, CA, is looking to use wearables to help make rehabilitation easier for victims.

Neofect’s solution is the Smart Glove, a wearable that almost feels like it drapes over your hand. You secure it to your wrist, with loops to hold each finger segment in place. It’s got a hub that houses a 9-axis movement and position sensor, while each of the Glove’s fingers has a flexible sensor that registers how much it’s being bent.

All of these sensors are used by the Rapael Smart Rehab Platform to help power a variety of gamified rehab exercises, and Wareable got a chance to take the whole thing for a spin.
