WHYENHANDS sensory glove

There are more than 1/3 of users of myoelectric prosthetic hands who are not using the prosthesis regularly. The reasons are complex, but fundamentally the prosthesis cannot replace a real hand. Neither is Enhands capable of doing this. But what Enhands does is that it provides users with information on the contact of the finger with an object or person, and it provides qualitative information on the pressure acting on finger/hand. This happens via our patented multi-channel sensory feedback. In first place this enables users to control the force acting at gripping with much more ease as currently possible and thus easier and more secure handling of goods (especially soft or breakable things). What we also anticipate is that with regular use this artificial sensory information will be quickly adapted by the brains and the user will be able to process this information automatically (like driving or using a computer mouse).

Enhands Functions

  • foto Artificial sense of touch Enhands provides users with information on the contact of the finger with an object or person as well as a qualitative informatioton of the pressure acting on finger/hand.
  • foto Retrofit possible Enhands comes in a form of a glove. This enables instalation of the glove on existing myoelectric hand. It is suggested, that Enhands is placed instead of existing cosmetic glove.
  • foto Affordable The cost of Enhands lies in the range of best cosmetic gloves (that must be anyhow changed periodically), so there is a posibility to change to acitve sensory glove on the next change of glove. There is no need to buy a new prosthetic hand to have the newest technology, upgrade instead.

OUR STORY

The idea started in 2017 when T. Kos realized that there is a fundamental lack of sensory feedback in the area of upper-arm prosthetic devices. He contacted M. Kužner, the second founder, who is also the user of a prosthetic hand. Together with university rehabilitations institute Soča in Slovenia and the third co-founder David they managed to develop and test the first prototype. At the moment, our team is developing the fully functional prototype of the sensory glove. We expect to make a launch in the year 2021.
