What It Does

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.

The Inspiration

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.

How It Works

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.

Stages of Development

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.

Novelty

Through this opportunity, we have invented an artificial muscle elastic glove, which functions as a stroke rehabilitation medical device, with relatively light weight, high portability and an affordable price. By providing stroke patients with a new option, we believe that “GIVE ME FIVE”, our product, can allow them to bring it home and enjoy the same treatment effect anytime and at anyplace.

Future Plans

GIVE ME FIVE is coming to 3rd prototype. Every day it has improvements and become more successful. We also want to develop a mobile app to help the victims to do the physical therapy at home. All of us hope that our gloves can help stroke victims regain proper functions of hands.
