New Device Promises to Make Stroke Rehabilitation Fun

New Device Promises to Make Stroke Rehabilitation Fun

  • A startup incubated at the Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad has developed a device that promises to offer considerably better rehabilitation for those suffering from impaired upper arm movement due to different conditions ranging from fractures and frozen shoulders to traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy and brain stroke.
  • The device, ArmAble, seeks to make the task of exercising of the upper arm from being a chore to being fun-filled.
  • It consists of a console on which several games keep playing out one after the other and the patient seated across has to move a bar designed in the form of a bike handle in accordance with them.
