Spastic hand paralysis is a painfully common problem experienced by patients who have suffered damage to the central nervous system due to a stroke or other causes. These patients are not able to autonomously open their fingers, which significantly impacts quality of life. There are about 20 million people suffering from hand spasticity worldwide, out of which 1.3 million people live in Europe.
Designed for everyday use
Phoenix Orthosis uses an innovative approach to substitute the fingers’ ability to open, while intentionally remaining as discreet as possible. Thus, the paralysed hand can be reintegrated into everyday life which is the most effective route to rehabilitation.
Product development is progressing at full steam and our early prototype has passed initial tests with promising results. The first product release is expected in mid-2020, so stay tuned – there is still a lot to come.
