Field
Medical Devices and New Materials
Patent
IP00672

Key Problem and Market Opportunity

  • There is no cost effective measures to measure the motion of each finger simultaneously
  • Existing sensor gloves mainly target for clinical assessment focus on hand movement only, rather than finger movement.
  • Sensor used to measure finger motion are often too heavy, thus interferes the motion of the user.
  • Sensor gloves cannot be used by persons with different sized hand, incorrect fit may gives inaccurate results.
