The Molinette hospital in Turin uses a futuristic robot to rehabilitate the upper limbs that are out of order after a stroke. At the presentation of the robotic hand 2.0 also the director of the Rehabilitation Medicine Center of the City of Health Giuseppe Massazza and the representatives of the Reale Foundation and the numerous Rotary Clubs that together financed the project, which cost 107 thousand euros. The patient with neuromotor pathology, it was explained, sits at a console in front of a screen and puts both arms in special articulated supports that end in two gloves equipped with sensors for reading active movements and artificial tendons for passive mobilization . The movement can be produced entirely by the glove or entirely by the patient. Alternatively, the device can only intervene when necessary. The machine records progress and allows the programming of increasingly complex exercises. The interview with patient Dr. Franco Nessi and Dr. Giuseppe Massazza.
