PLUTO

Plug and Train Robot (PLUTO) for Hand Rehabilitation: A low-cost hand-neuro-rehabilitation device to provide gamified therapy to persons with neurological and musculoskeletal conditions such as stroke, arthritis, cerebral palsy, Parkinson’s disease, etc. to restore hand functions. Providing a solution like PLUTO to people with hand impairments will help them to improve their quality of life with proper exercise sessions and it can also be a tool for therapists to remotely monitor performance and plan therapy accordingly. Currently the refined prototype versions integrating training with PC games by receiving biofeedback are being developed and are getting tested at Christian Medical College, Vellore. The device is developed in collaboration with Prof. Sivakumar Balasubramanian and his team at the Department of Bioengineering, CMC Vellore.
