Using Gloreha in a TBI case

The video features a 20 year old male with a hemiplegia following a traumatic brain injury.  The clinical goals were to

  • improve his manual skills
  • reactivate the muscles of his hand
  • stimulate and improve his proprioceptive sense (body awareness) of the hand

Prior to using Gloreha his hand was treated with Botox. Note that additional Loops made of silicon are used to guide the control wires in cases of significant spasticity.
