NEOFECT’s NeoMano is a soft, robotic glove that fits over the thumb, index, and middle finger to help people with hand paralysis grip and perform daily activities. This device is helpful for people with movement in their wrist and arm but little to no strength in their hands, such as people who suffer from hand paralysis from a spinal cord injury, stroke, ALS, MS, cerebral palsy, or a nerve injury.
The benefit to using the NeoMano is 3-prong: First, the NeoMano allows people to do a variety of everyday tasks they otherwise couldn’t do on their own, such as brushing their teeth or opening a door. As a result, the NeoMano increases confidence and independence in users. Additionally, the NeoMano design is comfortable enough to be worn in multiple situations, whether at home or in public.
