Reach: At-Home Stroke Rehabilitation Wearable

Leaving the hospital and ending assisted stroke rehabilitation is a major hurdle for stroke patients to overcome during their recovery.

Stroke rehabilitation is a long, difficult, repetitive and tedious process and one that takes a long time to show results. Some stroke victims doing at home rehabilitation are left hoping, guessing, and wondering if it is working at all.

A large fraction of stroke victims will learn to live with use of only one upper limb as a consequence of prematurely ending stroke rehabilitation.

Reach seeks to offer patients and their primary care doctors an insight into their rehabilitation journey by monitoring, recording, and allowing the user to play interactive games with muscle sensors that pick up the nerve signals in affected limb.
