A customized, wearable powered orthosis system with integrated functional electrical stimulation that has been developed and built at Jefferson. A clinical trial will test the novel sleeve in 10 adults and 10 children, starting with one child and one adult at first. Participants may have arm weakness or paralysis due to conditions such as stroke, spinal cord injury, ALS, muscular dystrophy, and cerebral palsy.
A 3D mesh figure created by taking photos of a child’s arm. A 3D model generated from photographs can be used to 3D print customize components for the NuroSleeve.
