Most people suffer symptoms of paralysis in the arm following a stroke. M-Brace offers support during rehabilitation. The robot exercise arm works with preprogrammed exercises, responds to movements or muscle tension in the arm. M-brace is a supplement to therapy and involves patients actively in their recovery. This means that people can receive therapy at home and train without the extra costs of the current set-up, which increases the chance of recovery.
