Portable Home Therapy for Stroke Rehabilitation

Neofect Smart Home Rehab has developed the Smart Glove which helps people who have suffered from a stroke, traumatic brain injury, or other neurological injury. The Smart Glove is lightweight and portable, and can be taken anywhere along with the 10 inch mobile tablet it connects with. The Smart Glove is a biofeedback tool that was created based on the theory of neuroplasticity.

Neuroplasticity is the brain’s ability to create new connections and neuro pathways by performing repetitive movements. The Smart Glove helps create a lot of repetition in a fun and engaging way, that is, by games played on a mobile tablet! Each of the activities encourage hand and wrist movements that are needed for daily life activities, so you can work to getting back to your old self.
