The HandinMind – A “stroke glove” for better stroke rehabilitation

In the next two years, a new innovation called “HandinMind” will improve the quality of everyday life for many, including patients who have suffered a stroke. Thanks to a flexible glove, it will be possible to carry out tasks that would otherwise be impossible for a patient to manage.“HandinMind’s purpose matches up well with our ambition of further improving the vital rehabilitation after a stroke,” says Jörgen Borg, professor and head of Danderyd Hospital Rehabilitation Clinic.

More about HandinMind

In the autumn of 2013, the HandinMind project, which is partly financed by the EU’s Eurostars programme, was selected from over 500 applications in order to develop the idea of a special “stroke glove”.

The project combines European expertise from the latest robotics, modern communications engineering and successful stroke rehabiltation research. The “stroke glove”concept is intended to successfully train impaired or lost motor functions in stroke patients, compensate for weak hand function and support an effective rehabilitation in the everyday, home environment.

The Swedish medical technology company Bioservo, the Swiss company Hocoma and the Netherlands’s largest clinic for rehabilitation, Roessingh Research and Development, are all involved in the project. Danderyd Hospital is taking part in the specification of requirements and validation, and in this way making a contribution to ensuring that the end product surpasses ambitions for modern stroke treatment. Visit the HandinMind website

The ironHand

The ironHand project is developing a robotic glove for elderly people that are experiencing a loss in hand function due to age related muscle loss and different health complications (arthritis, stroke, neuropathy). Reduced hand function has a large impact on their quality-of-life and capability to work and performADL tasks. The ironHand glove adds extra strength to their grip and other relevant hand movements, supporting elderly people in everyday activities.

More about the ironHand glove

The ironHand glove enables older adults with impaired hand function due to weak grip to continue managing their occupation and community activities, while preserving their health and motivation to remain active.  A weakened grip is a common condition of older adults that prevents them from performing everyday activities such as gardening and handiwork. It may be the result of Sarcopenia (normal degenerative loss of muscle mass related to aging) or be a consequence of acute diseases (such as stroke) or chronic diseases (such as rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis). Exercise and increased activity have been shown to be beneficial in cases of Sarcopenia, even in the very old. Therefore, instead of completely replacing a user’s force, the ironHand glove adapts its level of support, requiring a mildly challenging effort from the user. Visit the ironHand website

SEM Glove

The SEM Glove™ strengthens the grip and either compensates where power is lacking or adds extra force and endurance. It is the first robotic aid on the market which is totally controlled by the wearer. The SEM™ Glove consists of a glove and a lightweight power unit. The maximum power and the degree of strength added can be adjusted to suit the individual user, enabling the glove to be adapted for different needs.
