Auxiliary glove that supports paralyzed fingers.
NeoMano is a wearable, soft robotic hand by Neofect, that enables and empowers people with hand paralysis to execute day-to-day activities. It fits over the thumb, index, and middle finger while leaving the other fingers and part of the hand uncovered. With the use of NeoMano, people with paralysis can move their fingers to perform activities like hold and drink a cup of water, brush their teeth, or turn a doorknob to open a door. It does this by providing active grasp to maintain grip, followed by passive release. Neomano offers independence and confidence.
People who suffer from hand disfunction because of spinal cord injury (SCI), stroke, Lou Gehrig's disease (ALS), multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy and nerve injury can use it. Please note that the range of product use may differ by the diagnosis and individual hand function.
There are other activities that users can do with NeoMano, such as:
A variety of everyday tasks with the use of an innovative device. Daily tasks can be difficult for people that don't have total functionality from their hand, which is why many rely on assistive devices or caregivers. NeoMano allows people to return to their daily-living activities and hobbies.
The partial glove design allows tactile sensory input to part of the palm and exposed fingers, and the leather allows flexibility for everyday tasks. NeoMano can be used by people both in the comfort of their own homes and in public.
