We developed a VR-solution to control virtual content with your hand gestures!

Rehabilitation

Connected with VR-Headsets the glove is used to cure hand injuries by playing motivating games in the virtual world.

The glove

Idea

Touch the virtual! Our idea is a glove which is able to trace and control hand movements. Connected with VR-Headsets it is used to cure hand injuries by playing motivating games in the virtual world.

Inspiration

We have always been very interested in new technology and followed the development of VR-Headsets. But very soon we realised that it is quite uncomfortable having to use controllers or keyboard and mouse to navigate the programmes. When a friend of us had a accident with his bike, he had to do monotonous exercises to cure his injury. So we decided to find a solution to the problem of motivating especially young people to do their exercises more frequently and with fun. This is the reason we connected our idea with the aim to help young people get their injuries cured better.
