Hi, this is Ulster BOCES InvenTeam made up of New Visions Health and Robotics students. We are working on an exoskeleton hand to benefit stroke and traumatic brain injury patients. We have created a Facebook page, you can access it here. Feel free to like our page and add us as a friend! Instagram and Twitter accounts are being created. Meetings have been in the morning and weekends. There are many different ideas and concepts that have been combined into two prototypes which we are working on developing. The group is also working on an empathy survey to interview stroke and traumatic brain injury patients. In previous meetings, we have learned about how cerebral vascular accidents (strokes) have affected patients. Our goal is to tailor our exoskeleton hand to benefit the patients. If any obstacles occur we will work to overcome them.
