How Neofect is using wearables to change physical therapy #WearableWednesday

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.

Flora breadboard is Every Wednesday is Wearable Wednesday here at Adafruit! We’re bringing you the blinkiest, most fashionable, innovative, and useful wearables from around the web and in our own original projects featuring our wearable Arduino-compatible platform, FLORA. Be sure to post up your wearables projects in the forums or send us a link and you might be featured here on Wearable Wednesday!


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
