Cable Actuated Exomusculature Glove for Stroke Rehabilitation and Assistance

We are developing a glove that can be used for rehabilitation and assistive grasping for those suffering from a stroke or with physical disabilities. The glove can support EMG-controlled active assistance, active resistance, and pre-programmed motions.
