Neurobots works on hand rehabilitation for strokes, a disease that reaches 16 million people per year, and after 6 months of injury patients enter the chronic state, when the improvement is almost imperceptible. Neurobots’s solution allows the patient to control an exoskeleton at the paralyzed hand through brain sensors. During user research, after 21 chronic patients used Neurobots therapy, the mean recovery was 30% in only 2 weeks of exercise.
