The major cause of problems with hand motility in adults is due to work accidents, strokes, injuries and work accidents. The emergence of robotic gloves for hand rehabilitation therapy has been developed to assist with rehabilitation treatment. In this scientific paper, a robotic glove prosthesis is designed and developed for use in hand rehabilitation in patients with grip pathologies. There is talk of mechanical design and operation, and the glove is controlled by a mobile application that allows the physiotherapist to enter the settings for the patient or allow an expert system based on 15 rules to do so. The system is capable of generating reports for the patient, the physiotherapist or the caregiver to review. The developed system is portable, lightweight and easy to transport. The validation of the prototype was carried out with adult patients suffering from hemiparesis.

Bibliographical noteFunding Information:
In the scientific article by Gil, they develop a robotic orthosis for people who suffer hand fractures, with the intervention of an orthopedic surgeon, whose process was performed in 4 different cases of fractures. The study was funded by the F-CIBER-M317 foundation; it is concluded that early mobilization assisted by robotic orthoses is safe for the patient and effectively complements the rehabilitation program after surgery .
