Disorders of the nervous system account for approximately 28% of all years of life lived with disability worldwide.The distal parts of the limbs are known to be the most affected by persistent deficits, with weakness of voluntary contraction and hypertonus of the extensor muscles strongly reducing the ability to extend the joints.

 

Using soft robotic assistive devices made of fabric (exosuit on the left and exoglove on the right), we can provide assistance to human movements both in a clinical setting, in the acute phase of recovery, and in a daily scenario, promoting restoration of lost motor function and increasing the independence and quality of life of stroke patients.
