iMove@UCI - Enhancing Ability

ArmeoSpring Exoskeleton

The ArmeoSpring exoskeleton developed by iMove students is now in use in over 300 hospitals worldwide, and has been demonstrated to help people with stroke, spinal cord injury, cerebral palsy, and multiple sclerosis improve their movement ability through intense training.

Smart Robotic Wheelchair

The Smart Robotic Wheelchair trainer developed by iMove students helps children with a severe disability learn to drive a powered wheelchair and is now being tested by local therapists at California Children’s Services.

The MusicGlove

The MusicGlove helps people improve finger dexterity by playing a music-based game similar to the popular video game GuitarHero. This device is being commercialized by Flint Rehabilitation Devices, an Orange County start-up company founded by UCI students Nizan Friedman and Dan Zondervan, with the support of small business innovation research grants from the National Institutes of Health and National Institute of Disability and Rehabilitation Research.
