Hand Movement

Improve your hand function

This rewellio module was specifically designed to improve the hand function after a stroke or brain injury. If you have suffered from a hemiparesis of the upper limb with no to little gross motor function in the hand – or in other words: if no visible movement of your fingers and wrist is possible or you can’t voluntary extend/flex the fingers or your wrist – you will benefit from the exercises in the rewellio hand movement module. One huge milestone in rehabilitation is regaining the functional use of your hand. Grabbing and releasing objects are your immediate goals and we want to support you achieving them. The traditional therapy approaches for these achievements are mirror therapy and motor imagery.

Our Tool

EMG-biofeedback

Our EMG-biofeedback module can be used to relearn movement after a stroke. Especially in an early functional stage where no motion is yet visible, our rewellio EMG-biofeedback can provide an extra feedback loop. At a later stage patients with increased flexor muscle tension can learn how they can control their muscle tone.

HAND MOVEMENT

How it works

The EMG-biofeedback therapy module is designed to detect the slightest signals from the brain to the hand, which would not be visible otherwise. These optically imperceptible muscle activities will be amplified by rewellio and shown by a virtual hand on the screen. Activating and recognizing your arm, hand and paretic side can prevent learned none-use and increase representation in your brain. The repeated use of the motor feedback loops prepares you for your sessions with your therapist. “It is unbelievable how sensitively I can control the hand in different ways and not only increase the usual pattern with tone and flexion” – patient feedback after 3 month use of the module.

Know more

Activating the flexor muscles can often work better than activating the extensor muscle. The motor feedback loop for the flexor muscle is getting stronger while the feedback loop for the extensor is staying weak. Rewellio uses 2 channel EMG and tracks the flexor and the extensor muscle activity at the same time. The aim is to help you relearn how you can relax the flexor muscle and activate die extensor muscle at the same time.
