An Assistive Soft Robotic Hand for Stroke Rehabilitation


Phase N/A Results N/A

Trial Description

The soft robotic system could provide objective and quantifiable measures of subject performance. By combining voluntary motor intention and the robotic hand technology, the system will facilitate the recovery process of stroke patients.
