Limited Hand Function
Our hands are very important to us. They are a vital part of who we are and how we see ourselves. Good hand function is paramount for our quality of life.
However, they are vulnerable. Being limited because of an injury or an illness can feel intimidating and restricting for the affected. Limitation in hand function may stem from:
- neurodegenerative conditions like ALS or Parkinson's
- neurocardiovascular events such as Strokes
- autoimmune disorders like Guillain-Barre Syndrome
- age-related issues including sarcopenia or arthritis
- traumatic injuries

NUADA brings an innovative hand function support system that will help you maintain grasp of objects of any size, shape and weight.
It uses thin, breathable, flexible and smart textiles to provide a light, non-intrusive, safe and small glove, to be used on an everyday basis.
NUADA, in partnership with health institutions in Portugal, UK and USA, has conducted clinical studies to validate the health benefits of the Nuada Glove.

- Hand Support System
With the Nuada Glove, participants were able to support objects without muscular activity.
- Hand Function Improvement
With a brief presentation of the Nuada Glove, participants were able to independently use it and showed improvements in grasping objects.
