The HERO Glove is a glove that is worn by a user and has motors to help extend and flex the user’s fingers. We are exploring which populations would find the added hand extension and grip strength useful.
The user puts on the glove. A button is pushed with to flex the fingers. Another button is pushed to extend the fingers.
I currently have radial nerve damage, my extensors are weak to non-existent. So basically I can’t open my hands or lift my wrist. I came on here looking to find someone to talk to about building something similar. I drew a design of my own but not using motors. So that would be a population, radial nerve damage. “¯_(ツ)_/¯ “
