Shown at the International Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in Las Vegas, it is produced by Korean assistive technology company Neofect.

The technology consists of a glove connected to a rubber pad, which, when pressed by an elbow or arm, can activate the motion of the glove.

The device covers three fingers of the hand – the thumb, index and middle fingers.

The video says it is aimed at patients who suffer from spinal cord injuries.

While a prototype is being shown at CES, the Kickstarter for the project is due to begin later in 2018.

CES is the world’s largest consumer tech trade show and is now in its 51st year. It is seen as the launch of the tech year with the industry’s biggest names unveiling products and plans for the coming 12 months.

The NHS is also looking at wearable health technology in 2018. Bristol-based company Open Bionics, which makes 3D printed devices for amputees, is into its second stage of a trial with NHS England, according to a company blog post.

Open Bionics produces bionic arms that are based on popular Disney characters that have removable covers so children can decide which character they want to be that day.

Watch the technology in action below.
