Abstract

Sensorized garments represent a breakthrough in wearable sensor technology. Sensorized garments have potential for the development of exciting new applications in rehabilitation. In this paper, we present our work toward the development of a system based on a sensorized glove that tracks hand movements during hand grasp/release tasks. The project aims at developing technology to facilitate the implementation of rehabilitation protocols focused on improving hand function. Preliminary results presented in this paper show that the sensorized glove can reliably track hand aperture during static and dynamic tasks.
