SHaRe

DESCRIPTION

SHaRe SHaRe, or the System for Hand Rehabilitation in Dexterous Manipulation of Daily Objects, was developed in order to help individuals regain hand dexterity.

It is capable of displaying the force applied to a device as deformation of a virtual model, providing visual feedback of the applied force. Furthermore, it is also capable of applying the device’s orientation to the virtual model.

A prototype of SHaRe is currently under test in a medical institution, in order to assess its usefulness in a real rehabilitation environment.

A few serious games have been developed for this prototype and have been used in trial experiments within medical institutions. This device is integrated in our software platform (CORe) for storage and historical data access, as well as multi-user online interaction in real-time.

These serious rehabilitation games are also suitable to help balance the slowing of dexterous manipulation due to aging.
