About the solution
This innovation works as a therapy device, helping the patients to improve their dexterity thanks to particular exercises.
Lauren created the aid using a 3D printer, and this solution aims to counteract hand closure due to spasm.
After going to a hackathon, Lauren met with engineers, as well as the company Nuwave Ventures.
They helped her by improving the tool, making it a smart device that can give immediate feedback as users perform activities – the sensors are measuring force, range of motion and the number of actions in a given time.
