Scientists are at it again. Researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia developed a wireless glove that is designed to improve mobility and sensation in people with spinal cord injuries. The researchers tested the glove with people who had spinal cord injuries sustained more than a year prior to the study. The results revealed the wireless glove brought renewed mobility and sensation, improvements that are not generally seen more than a year after the injury. The musical glove is linked to both a computer and a piano/keyboard. The computer plays a song and the glove sends vibrations to the user’s fingers, stimulating the appropriate fingers. Simultaneously the keyboard lights up with the right keys.
