HOCOMA PARTNERS IRONHAND PROJECT

20th June 2014

The project develops a robotic glove for older persons that are experiencing a loss in handgrip, due to different health complications (arthritis, stroke, neuropathy) and age related muscle loss. Reduced hand functions have a large impact on quality of life and the capability to work and perform activities of daily living. The ironHand glove adds extra strength to the handgrip, supporting older persons in everyday activities.
