Rothman physicians help develop wearable for spinal cord injury patients


Physicians with Philadelphia-based Rothman Orthopaedic Institute assisted with the creation of the NeuroSleeve, a device for patients with paralysis, the practice said in a July 8 news release.

The team of physicians worked in partnership with The Raphael Center for Neurorestoration at Jefferson's Farber Institute in Philadelphia to create the wearable device. It leverages a patient-controlled 3D-printed robotic motorized assistance, electrical stimulation and soft robotic pneumatics to address movement deficits. 

The Raphael NuroSleeve system can also accept signals from an implanted brain sensor from companies including Precision Neuroscience, Paradromics, Synchron and Neuralink.
