New Gloreha Pro 2 is coming..
The SEM™ Glove - A personal grip strengthening aid - NEw Product
Is your grip weaker than it should be due to accident, neurological condition or other illness? You can achieve a stronger grip and more power and endurance which you then can use in a very natural way with the SEM™ Glove.
The SEM™ Glove (Soft Extra Muscles for You) is a smart, wearable assistive aid to improve your "grip ability" when this has been weakened by illness or trauma.
The glove mimics the human hand by using artificial tendons, motors and sensors along with some very clever software. This approach is called "mechatronics" by engineers - but what you will care about is the result - a product that can help you can have the power and endurance in your fingers to get back to a more complete life.
Who Should Use it?
The SEM™ Glove is a medical device designed to be used by any person with a weak grip. People may suffer from impaired grip strength for countless reasons, such as muscle and nerve damage, muscle diseases, rheumatism and pain. The SEM™ Glove strengthens the grip and either compensates where power is lacking or adds extra force and endurance.
Every year another 60,000 UK stroke survivors will find hand and arm problems limiting their activities. With the total number of UK stroke survivors over 1 millions persons already, this is a challenge for society as a whole, as well as those affected.
When we also consider that Spinal Cord Injury, Peripheral Nerve Injury, Chronic Pain Syndrome and trauma also affect the hands of thousands, isn't it about time we had efficient and effective aids and rehabilitation tools? And what about conditions like MS, Rheumatoid arthritis and even the effects of ageing that impact so powerfully on quality of life?
Who Can't Use it?
The main reason that the product would be ineffective is a complete paralysis of the hand. The sensors in the fingers respond to the user's intention and ability to apply pressure to the object being gripped. If the person can't use the fingers at all, the device cannot sense the users intention.
How Do I Try it?
We first must assess if the device is suitable for you. If it is, we will be able to adjust the settings so they suit your current grip issues. You will wear a snugly fitting glove on your affected hand. A cable bundle connects the glove to a control pack that sits, for example, on your belt. Rechargeable batteries deliver around 8 hours use. Because the sensors in the glove operate based on touch pressure, you can wear another protective glove over the SEM Glove if necessary for, let's say, a particular work situation.
A complete system currently is priced at £4730 or 6000 Euro excluding VAT.
Many potential users may not need to pay VAT due to their disability. Ask us for details.

FES Cycling with a RehaMove system is an effective way of keeping fit and exercising when, following a spinal cord injury, stroke, MS or other neurological challenge, regular exercise is difficult to get.
This FES technology uses precise functional electrical stimulation to actively exercise the muscles of paralysed limbs. This improves circulation, eases spasms, strengthens muscles and much more. This is vital for long-term health and can be used safely at home.
The Hasomed RehaMove 2 system is by far the most cost-effective FES bike for home or professional use. It's offered around the world and we have worked for 8 years with this product in the UK.
For best value and great support it's your natural choice. See http://www.fescycling.com for more detail.
You will also find electrode supplies and spare parts int he online store.
Isn't it about time we had truly efficient and effective hand rehabilitation tools?
Damage to the hand is not just a problem of manual dexterity - the hand has always been a tool for communication and self expression - hands express our cultural identity, our place in the world and even who are as individuals at the deepest level
This site introduces Gloreha Hand Rehabiltation a tool that makes hand rehabilitation efficient and effective.
The NEW Gloreha Pro2 features significant advancements for 2015. See more at Gloreha.co.uk
Orthotic Products Site
Orthotic devices are typically mechanical systems - sometimes simple and sometimes complex - that are often added to the body and are in close contact with it. An orthosis typically provides support and other benefits following injury or a disease that affects the musculo-skeletal or neuromuscular system. That includes Stroke, Spinal Cord Injury, MS and Diabetic Foot Disease to name but a few,
TEK - Robotic Mobility Device from Matia Robotics
A completely new concept blending health giving standing, mobility and hands-free convenience - much more than a wheelchair alternative. A very practical use of robotics when mobility is compromised for example following a spinal cord injury. The device is designed to look good as well as deliver the functionality needed in everyday life. Ideal for paraplegics or those with compromised walking and standing ability - but - with good upper limb and hand function.

Excellent Orthotic Products
Orthotic devices are typically mechanical systems - sometimes simple and sometimes complex - that are often added to the body and are in close contact with it. An orthosis typically provides support and other benefits following injury or a disease that affects the musculo-skeletal or neuromuscular system. That includes Stroke, Spinal Cord Injury, Multiple Sclerosis, Cerebral Palsy. Arthritis, Orthopaedic trauma and Diabetic Foot Disease to name but a few.
Orthoses come in a vast range of configurations and are often used to help compensate for injury or disease with the aim of restoring or enhancing a measure of quality of life.
In the early 1990's Anatomical Concepts Inc of Ohio were manufacturing patented orthotic products of great quality that filled a definite clinical need that still exists.
We created the UK business as an independent venture to bring these products to the European market and we are proud to be their partners
