LINarm++ is a device for neuromuscular rehabilitation of the upper limb, designed to enable rehabilitation training and treatment in both home and clinical environment. It integrates an existing low-cost rehabilitation device, a wearable neuromuscular electrical stimulation system, a virtual rehabilitation scenario, a low-cost unobtrusive sensory system integrated in the device handle, a low-cost wearable sensory system and a patient model for adapting training task parameters. LINarm++ monitors the user behaviour during each single session and its evolution throughout the entire training period. The result is a modular, integrated and affordable rehabilitation device, enabling a biomechanical, neurological and physiological-based training of patients, including innovative features currently unavailable within off-the-shelf rehabilitation devices. The price range makes it suitable for the in-home care market.
