Give Me Five
GIVE ME FIVE is the combination of varieties of advanced technologies, patients’ hands can open more easily with the assistance of our gloves. A continuous body motion can initiate the muscles and brain neurones to regenerate and regain original functions.
Stroke victims often lose proper functions of hands, and to regain them, physiotherapy is the most common track, albeit with many inconveniences. To stroke patients and their families, expensive treatment fees and long travel distances to hospitals are critical issues which cause dissatisfaction.
In the current market, a metallic robotic hand can provide a recovery training program without physiotherapist participation, however, the unaffordable pricing and extreme weight dissuade patients from purchasing it.
GIVE ME FIVE is the combination of varieties of advanced technologies, by sensing weak EMG signals generated from deep muscles with their own will and convert them to electric signals in the EMG amplifier, which will then be used to control the amount of air from the mini electric pump into the artificial muscle gloves and exert a rising force on each finger. Consequently, patients’ hands can open more easily with the assistance of our gloves. Moreover, a continuous body motion can initiate the influenced muscles and brain neurones to regenerate and regain original functions.
GIVE ME FIVE is coming to 3rd prototype. We decided to use an elastic glove which is more convenient and easier for the patient to wear. The electric pump has become smaller compared with three months ago, we want to make it smaller and portable.
