Light 3D printed glove for rehabilitating stroke patients

soft, wearable device that exploits the fundamental properties of light to sense a patient’s limb or finger movements. The customisable, 3D printed gloves can be remotely controlled, opening up the possibility of teleconsultation by physiotherapists.

"... mechanism by which customisable wearables like hand gloves can be designed, 3D printed, and controlled remotely. “The idea behind the device is that you wear something like a glove, the physiotherapist controls the device from a remote location through the internet, and makes your hands and fingers move,” describes Bid.  The device can sense various hand and finger movements, and precisely detect parameters like pressure, bending angle and shape."
