Re-wiring the brain-hand connections after stroke

Techstination feature for Wednesday, August 24, 2022

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.        Technology to help rewire the brain following a stroke.   That’s what a company called iRegained is focused on.    It has developed the MyHand System that uses digital neurotherapeutics.   How does it differ from traditional rehab?   CEO Vineet Johnson…a neuroscientist…

“A part of the brain is damaged and as a result of that damage the hand function is compromised.   There’s nothing wrong in the hand itself but the connection from the brain to hand is lost.  We, at iRegained use advanced technology and advanced engineering and deep neuroscience research to help restore hand function through a process called neuroplasticity.”

Right now machines are designed for rehab or medical facilities…but work continues on versions that can be used in the home.   Find more at www.iregained.ca.
