Bringing Wearable Robotics with VR to Market

UTA moves bioengineered REHEAL glove toward commercializationBringing Wearable Robotics with VR to Market

The University of Texas at Arlington Research Institute is making flexible soft robotic gloves that will aid in rehabilitating stroke patients through virtual reality gaming.

Combining this glove with the virtual reality gaming to be developed by Neuro Rehab VR will enable stroke patients to engage in rehabilitation activities for regaining their hand function.

The team was recently awarded a $224,893 National Science Foundation grant to use robotic-assisted, virtual reality-based therapy for stroke patients. The grant is part of the NSF’s Small Business Technology Transfer Fund and is aimed at helping technology startups commercialize products.
