Rwanda faces the problem of not having enough therapists to care for the rehabilitation of patients. As a result, it is only possible to have therapists for rehabilitation in the district hospitals. There are 44 public district hospitals throughout the country, each serving 255,000 people. Patients must travel long distances to reach the few clinics by public transport.
The glove offers the possibility to offer a decentralized rehabilitation close to the patient. In every health center in Rwanda that is widely used, the devices are then available for users. The results and progress are monitored via Internet by a therapist in a large hospital.
