Robotic Rehabilitation gloves

Robotic rehabilitation gloves are fabricated from easily deformable materials such as soft polymers that have better biomimetic qualities due to their increased compliance and versatility while conforming to the contours of the human body. The lack of rigid components removes constraints on non-actuated degrees of freedom and also reduces joint alignment issues, which could prevent joint damage. Additionally, soft robotics may be lighter and have simpler designs, making them more likely to be portable and opening up the possibility of home-based rehab programs. This would allow patients to train in the comfort of their own homes, possibly reducing overall rehabilitation costs. Home rehabilitation could also increase patient compliance, leading to more active therapy sessions and improved outcomes.
