פרויקט Description

JBD involvement:

Functional ergonometric design, manufacture of feasibility models, prototypes, detailed design.

Additional information:

The H200 system is comprised of an individually fitted hand splint aimed at treating upper limb paralysis resulting from a cerebral stroke or central nervous system damage.

The splint incorporates an array of electrodes that interface with a portable stimulation unit and remote control; it fits on the forearm and hand. The Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) activates the muscle group in the forearm, thus producing functional movement patterns in the hand.

The splint can be applied with one hand only, enabling partially disabled users independent and simple use.

The company has been involved in this project since its inception in 1993. Current sophisticated versions of the splint include a wireless operating system.
