The smart glove is packed with sensors that interact with the Rapael app.

The app's games/exercises target muscles by having the patient focus on specific movements such as chopping food.

The glove will come in two versions: one for clinical use and one for home use.

A spokesperson told me they chose to name the glove Rapael based on "raphael," which means "God is healer."
