Robotic glove

Thank you so much for printing the article “Robotic glove developed for stroke rehab” (Nurse.com/Article/Robotic-Glove). Is this product available to patients now, even on a trial basis? My brother had a stroke in 2008. It took him lots of time and therapy to get to the point of walking again, and in the process the left arm and hand were overlooked. The end result was the left hand stays folded up, making it hard to find a regular glove that he can wear. Would the robotic glove go on easier and is there a chance the hand would work again? He still lives by himself, drives and works, with the help of assistants. This would be a blessing for him. The doctors have said it is a miracle that he has made the progress he has.
