Recognition and Awards
This will enable him to hold onto things and let go without using that voluntary contraction that has become weak. That’s really an aid to his disability.
- Kenneth Noto, OTR/L
I am able to hold a shopping bag with certainty and walk around my house (I use a cane to ambulate, so being able to hold things and walk with stability is a major plus)
Spartycus (peripheral nerve injury)
My hopes with the glove is that my patient, Rachel, is going to eventually gain more dexterity and be able to pick things up with ease. With this NeoMano device, she’s able to do more detailed stuff with her hands.
Ulisses Jara-Manual, OTR/L
I stopped using my left hand because I didn’t want to drop something. Now I’m going to use it more because I know that I’ll be able to cinch [the NeoMano] down and know that if my hand falls, I’m still holding it.
