Helping Hand
The goal of the Helping Hand system is to assist people with limited and painful hand complications, such as carpal tunnel, by:
  • Reducing pain

  • Increasing daily functioning 

  • Preventing further injury

The smart brace solution
Helping Hand connected app

The app talks to the sensors in the glove to track and show the correlation between different health levels, such as inflammation, blood pressure, heart rate, and more.


You can also keep track of the sensor status, and receive alerts when certain levels are above your normal ranges. 

How does Helping Hand... help?
A day in the life of a user
Deborah works at a university. She frequently uses a computer which puts a lot of pressure on her hand.
Deborah’s hand hurts so she puts on her Helping Hand brace. The glove helps with support and circulation.

When Deborah gets coffee, the brace alerts her of the hot temperature. The grips on the brace help her hold the mug.

Before bed, Deborah adds a splint to the brace to support her wrists while she sleeps. She checks her health levels on the app, and can sleep soundly.
