ATLAS bimanual-rehabilitation glove system hands-on (video)
Engadget - 06/15/2012
The Squid Shirt that we checked out earlier today at Northeastern University certainly has the potential for healthcare use beyond straight off-season workout sessions, but the ATLAS project is an even purer expression of that application. The name is an acronym for the rather unwieldy Angle Tracking and Location At home System. In short, the system is a bimanual-rehabilitation glove system, a tracking device that utilizes two gloves to monitor the hand movements of stroke victims. The “Home System,” part of the name, meanwhile, signifies its creators’ intention to eventually release the ATLAS as an at-home testing system, allowing users to get more regular readings than industrial versions.
