Stroke is the number one cause of adult disability in the world. Due to the neurological damage from stroke, a vast majority of individuals suffer from hand function disability (~70%). To improve hand function and overcome challenges from this disability, IRegained has developed the MyHandTM system, a connected mechatronic device with programmed proprietary hand function training protocols developed through deep research in neuroplasticity for targeted hand function therapy.
This research projects aims to gamify these hand function training protocols and validate the enhanced patient engagement and motivation. The effectiveness of the therapy is dependent on intensity and repetition, which is expected to be achieved through gamification.
IRegained Inc will greatly benefit from this MITACS project through acceleration of its time to product launch, and clinical validation through direct user experience.
