With a prevention and treatment system integrated in a pair of gloves that joins two types of treatments: heat and
electric pulses.In this way they can use it, when they need it, without leaving home.

What is the impact of your project?

Make it accessible in price and availability for people suffering this disease.
And increase their quality of life.

How can the project be manufactured in the OpenLab?

With the knowledge and materials to make the prototype and especially the electronics to make the sensors and control

Describe your project in detail

The gloves are made for a prevention and treatment system of arthritis, where the main benefits are:
-Pain relief: It
help to produce endorphins. (Block pain signals from the brain)
-No side effect, because it is drug free.

The gloves made with lycra or spandex contents:
1. The transmission wares, pass through all joints of the
hand and transmit the heat or electrical pulses. This components are flexible and washables.

A nice idea ... I would like to ask about the effectiveness of the project. What is the speed of the joints'
response to treatment compared with the traditional treatment ...
And for the dose of medicine used in the glove I think
it should be in coordination with the doctor and
It depends on the patient's response to the treatment
