(EN) A rehabilitation apparatus for an upper limb of a patient is described, the apparatus comprising an electrostimulator element and a sensor element, both wearable by the patient. The electrostimulator element comprises a brace, configured to be positioned on the limb of the patient, and an electronic module comprising connectors for electrodes suitable for providing electrical stimulation to the patient's limb. The sensor element comprises a flex sensor configured to measure a movement of at least one portion of another upper limb of the patient. The electronic module is configured to connect wirelessly to the sensor element to receive from it a signal generated by the flex sensor depending on the movement of the at least one portion of the other limb of the patient and, on the basis of this signal, activate the one or more electrodes to provide electrical stimulation to the patient's limb.

Abstract

(EN) A rehabilitation apparatus for an upper limb of a patient is described, the apparatus comprising an electrostimulator element and a sensor element, both wearable by the patient. The electrostimulator element comprises a brace, configured to be positioned on the limb of the patient, and an electronic module comprising connectors for electrodes suitable for providing electrical stimulation to the patient's limb. The sensor element comprises a flex sensor configured to measure a movement of at least one portion of another upper limb of the patient. The electronic module is configured to connect wirelessly to the sensor element to receive from it a signal generated by the flex sensor depending on the movement of the at least one portion of the other limb of the patient and, on the basis of this signal, activate the one or more electrodes to provide electrical stimulation to the patient's limb.
