Abstract:

This project develops a music-based therapeutic device, MusicGlove, for at-home rehabilitation and assessment of hand function in individuals with hand-related disabilities as the result of stroke. Inspired by the popular video game, Guitar Hero, MusicGlove motivates individuals to practice functional gripping movements to play a custom computer game thereby inducing significant improvements in hand function. This project performs a usability study of the MusicGlove prototype and refines the design based on user feedback. Additionally, the project conducts a pilot study of at-home use of the device, comparing its performance to conventional at-home self-supervised therapy.
