More than 65 million amputees worldwide suffer from phantom limb pain, and 10 million of patients suffer from limb hemiplegia post stroke.
Current therapies in rehabilitation can be surgery with risks for the patient or medication with side effects.
The patient must also be accompanied by doctors, physiotherapists, and ergo therapists in rehabilitation centers, which limits rehabilitation at home.
Myotact aims to offer a simpler, quicker, and more efficient rehabilitation for amputees and hemiplegic patients. We have developed the Myotact bracelet, which allows the acquisition of muscle activity coupled with vibrotactile feedback while translating this activity into virtual movements via an application.
We propose the only device allowing the acquisition of muscle activity (EMG) coupled with vibrotactile feedback (sensory feedback) to facilitate the rehabilitation of all amputees and hemiplegics.
