Revolutionary Glove Shortlisted for Award

RAPAEL Smart Glove

The RAPAEL Smart Glove is revolutionising patient rehabilitation thanks to its interactive gaming element, which encourages and motivates its users to keep repeating measured movements.

With its range of games that, using algorithms, adapt to the progression of its users, the RAPAEL Smart Glove brings feeling and movement back to inactive parts of the hand, wrist and forearm.

Not only does the outstanding piece of equipment increase the difficulty of the movements and games with the patient’s progression, it also tracks and records their development.
