Patent Landscape Report on Rehabilitation Devices


Rehabilitation helps a person to be independent in everyday activities and enables participation in education, work, recreation and other life roles. It helps in regaining independence to carry out your activities. Rehabilitation addresses the underlying conditions (pain) and improves the way an individual functions in day-to-day life, supporting them to overcome difficulties with thinking, seeing, hearing, communicating, eating or moving around.

Several home-based rehabilitation devices have recently been developed. These devices can be adjusted to be suitable for home-based rehabilitation therapy based on some technical evaluation of mechatronics, software, and control system.
