Device that Helps Stroke Patients Regain Motor Skills


Designed by Matthias Menzel, this device, called Move On, facilitates the recovery of stroke patients who suffer from problems with their lower limbs.

The muscles of people who suffered a stroke cannot contract completely. When attached, the Move On can sense the low muscle signals and then convert them into movement.

The device allows stroke patients to regain normal motor skills, helping to recover muscle power and eventually leading to total recovery.
