Robotics and stroke #2

Another approach to stroke, complementary to our article below, is being investigated by The California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2) for rehabilitation of fine motor movement in hands post-stroke. Initial monitoring will be through a wristwatch type device, with rehab through a hand exerciser small enough for home use to encourage stroke patients to practice moving their fingers in different configurations and use different gripping techniques. This is being funded by a five year $1.5 million grant from NIH.   Federal Telemedicine News.(And no, it’s not because you need glasses…the headline does read ‘Sroke’)
