A wearable gaming glove for stroke patients.

I’m at CES Unveiled, and the Palmplug is a neat little wearable glove. There’s sensors on each finger for hand tracking, haptic feedback, and LED lights so you can have visual cues too.

There’s a lot of potential applications (VR is an obvious one) but the one I found most interesting is TheraPlay. It pairs the Palmplug’s hand tracking with a health tech game that helps stroke patients regain mobility. While the patient gets to play a game, their doctor gets metrics to see how recovery is going.
