In neurorehabilitation, moving paralyzed fingers on one's own is the most important in improving function, but also the most difficult. Depending on the severity of the paralysis, training starts with finger bending and stretching exercises such as “opening and closing hands” and expands to exercises that require more complex movements and speed as the paralysis recovers. In practice, however, the training varies depending on the therapist's ability and experience, resulting in different recovery levels. Therefore, it is thought that by having AI analyze and assist the patient’s intended movements, training would be based on objective data, allowing the patient to make the most of the patient's abilities.
