Soft Rehabilitation / Hand flexible exoskeleton

Soft Rehabilitation
Soft Rehabilitation

This design is a rehabilitation assistance product for stroke patients. It is designed to help patients recover from the sequelae of hand movement disorders. This exoskeleton uses
silicone materials to produce a large number of flexible airbag samples. With the aid of the airbag inflating, the bending brake method drives the fingers for rehabilitation activities, which can reduce secondary injuries and bring a more comfortable experience. The design of its modeling function explores the trend of intelligent, fashionable and lightweight rehabilitation products in the future.
