Persuasive Intent
Called the Rapael Smart Glove from Neofect, the white glove wraps around a patient's hand andhas movement and position sensors on the fingers and wrists. An Android app that connects via Bluetooth takes users through games and activities that strengthen the muscles in the hands and arms.

Hospitals and rehab centers in Europe, Asia and the U.S. already use the glove to treat patients. At CES 2017, Neofect is launching Rapael for patients outside clinics.
