It is called “E-Glove”, an electronic glove still in experimentation that will probably become a communication tool for those who are unable to speak or otherwise have difficulty in communicating due to both neurological deficits and “lesions” from the point of view of language and of expressiveness.
A hyper-technological glove that will allow alternative communication and that can help communicate, for example those who have had a stroke, but also people who are affected by the autism spectrum, and pathologies that can create difficulties when used in the oral communication channel.
The basic idea is the creation of a new communication device for people whose communication capacity is reduced. Through the gyroscope, the glove collects high-frequency data and processes them, which are sent, in real time, via Bluetooth to a smartphone, which contains a database, with the user’s gestures.
This innovative electronic glove, which is an experimental prototype, has just entered the important phase of field testing. In the prototype development and test project there are very heterogeneous professional teams, from teams of computer scientists, statisticians, mathematicians, physiatrists, physiotherapists, speech therapists, and even bioengineers.
