Profession: Engineer/Designer

Inspired by: Traditionally, wearable robotic structures have been mainly used in substitution of lost limbs (e.g., prosthetic limbs) or for human limb rehabilitation during six month after stroke (e.g., exoskeletons) . However, to the best of our knowledge, there is no robotic device for grasp compensation of chronic stroke patients. The design of our device is driven by the need to support the chronic stroke patients in activity of daily living (ADL).
