Wireless Smart Glove for arthritis rehabilitation

In: Smart Systems Integration conference.

In society today, arthritis remains a disabling and agonizing disease. Traditional measurements of arthritis requires labour intensive personal examination by medical staff which may offer hasty, ambitious, and at many times, unconstructive conclusions that may hinder the enactment and analysis of arthritis rehabilitation. This paper presents the development of a smart glove microsystem to facilitate this rehabilitative process through the integration of sensors, processors and wireless technology.
