Recovering after a stroke is not always easy or fast. Technology is making life easier for people dealing with a post-stroke impairment. Take the Soft SixthFinger for instance: it is a wearable EMG controlled robotic finger that allows patients with an impairment of the hand grasping function to achieve a higher degree of independence.

The goal is provide patients with a wearable robotic extra-finger that can be used to grasp items. The Soft SixthFinger is modular and can be worn like a bracelet when not in use. It offers a wireless connection with the EMG interface for portability. Irfan Hussain has shared more information about it on YouTube.
