Music Glove

The Music Glove is designed to encourage high number of repetitions of meaningful gripping movements through an engaging, music-based game.

Exercise with Music Glove is clinically proven to:

  • Improve hand function in two weeks
  • Lead to functional gains such as opening a door, washing dishes, typing and using the restroom independently
  • Motivate safe, high-intensity movements that initiate neuroplasticity in the brain

How it Works

The Music Glove is a sensorized glove that promotes recovery of hand function after injury. Users must make specific grips in time with songs. The correct grip and timing are shown by scrolling notes on a screen. The Music Glove also records the percentage of notes that were “hit,” the total number of grips performed, and the total time played for each song.


Improvement of motor recovery in hand and hand function caused by impairments from:

  • Stroke
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Neurologic and muscular injury
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Developmental disability
