Abstract

Many chronic stroke patients have problems in finger active extension due to flexor spasticity and extensor weakness. Therefore, their affected hand cannot perform functional grasp and release. The purpose of this study is to develop a wearable device using 3D printing technology to assist stroke patients in hand function rehabilitation, especially grasp and release.
