Hopebotics is a young start-up company located in Hong Kong Science and Technology Park (HKSTP), founded by two Professors from the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) (Prof. Raymond Tong, Chairman of the Dept. of Biomedical Engineering; Prof. Zheng Li, the Dept. of Surgery) and Ph.D. Students. We dedicate to provide the latest soft wearable robotics for stroke rehabilitation. We collaborate with local clinicians and therapists to offer professional rehabilitation guidance and services. We worked hand-in-hand with 10+ local stroke associations and rehabilitation centers to conduct product development and clinical training. We are currently supported by the Incu-Bio Program (HKSTP) and TSSSU (CUHK).
Hopebotics is committed to establish a platform integrated with soft wearable robotics technology that can provide rehabilitation, daily living assistance, and social functionalities to improve the quality of life of the elderly and disabled population.
Training with Hopebotics HandTasker
We push the Technical Boundaries of the Traditional Robotic Hand: with the use of Flexible Actuator and 3D Printing Technology to fit the soft hand robot with the natural hand movement. Soft hand combined with EMG biofeedback is promising for hand functional recovery.
Flexible Materials with High Tensile Strength. We can customise our design to accommodate patients with different hand sizes and stiffness levels. It is tailor-made for assisting daily-living tasks of the hand.
Real-Time Muscle Spasticity Monitoring. It could help therapists to follow-up the condition of patients easily.
Through the Proprietary Interactive Sensor Array Tablet, Hopebotics HandTasker can recognise the patient's movement intention and perform individual or group training task-oriented rehabilitation training.
