People suffering from strokes lose control over one portion of their body and they have to rely on others for movement. To aggravating the problem, they need to visit clinic for physiotherapy on a regular basic. Designed for after strokes therapy, the “Hand Sync” is a hi-tech system, which allowing free hand movement without any external support, making life easy and self-reliant for the paralyzed. User need to wear the mechanical equipment on both the hands that lets him/her transfer the power or movement of the healthy hand to the paralyzed one. As the patient moves one finger of the healthy hand, it generates adequate power to move the same finger of the paralyzed hand. To sum up, the healthy hand becomes the motor of the diseased hand. The Hand Sync not only features an easy mechanism but also presents an ergonomic design to let the patient regain normal body movement with minimum fuss.
