#reHub #glove is a tool used to monitor hands movements. Collected data can be applied to a various range of fields.
On 3rd of May 2017 we submitted our application to the CALL FOR MAKERS - opencare Maker In Residence.
The opencare Maker in Residence is the first edition of a special residency program organized by WeMake, as part of the opencare European project. It provides support, assistance, funding and acceleration to Makers – from all over the world – who are interested in developing / validating / iterating an open source project in the health and care field.
We applied as reHub. reHub is a tool designed for proprioceptive rehabilitation, to recover movement fluidity after an injury: provided by the physiotherapist, it allows the patient to record and report exercises data such as hand position, finger flexion and fingertips pressure. Recorded data are displayed through a software that reproduces a 3D hand, its movements and detected values.
Through the software a physiotherapist is able to evaluate the therapeutic process and possibly change it. Thanks to reHub exercises can be done in physiotherapist presence or at a distance.
We are still looking for our final user(s), who will try our product and help us develop different options:
We want to build a community and start a business strategy.
