This Lightweight Robotic Hand Is a Smart Rehabilitation Device

A new rehabilitative tool can help restore function to people with injuries and neurological conditions affecting their hands. The device is called the EsoGLOVE, and it’s a robotic hand engineered to help people get a grip. Jane Wang, co-founder and CEO of Singapore’s ROCESO Technologies, demonstrates how the soft, lightweight, computer-assisted glove guides fingers and thumbs to perform everyday tasks. Aging populations are a key challenge for many economies and technologies like the EsoGLOVE can be lifechanging.
