Paralysis is loss of muscle function for one or more muscles. Paralysis is most often caused by damage in the nervous system, especially the spinal cord. Other major causes are stroke, trauma with poliomyelitis, cerebr al palsy, peripheral neuropathy, Parkinson's disease, spina bifida, hyper tension, diabetes mellitus etc. Primary goals of stroke management are done which includes reduced brain injury and promotion of patient recovery. Once the patient is medically stable, our focus shifts to

During rehabilitation, it is often observed that the muscles affected develop many potential features of altered performance including decreased motor control, weakness, clonus, exaggerated deep tendon reflexes, decreased endurance and spasticity. For this we have designed glove to avoid wrist drop condition and to achieve proper functionality of hand.
