People usually wear gloves for warmth or protection. There are gloves with other purposes, however, such as restoring mobility to the wearer's fingers. This is the idea behind a mechatronic orthosis called the exomotion® hand one, which is planned to reach the market in the near future. The exomotion® hand one is worn like a glove and consists of custom-fitted exo-finger mechanics, a supporting forearm splint, a sensor, a control unit, and four miniature drives that provide the power to open or close the wearer's fingers. Six types of grip are available, to restore to the wearer the freedom of movement he or she may have lost as a result of a stroke, accident, or degenerative disease.
