A first-of-its kind device, called IpsiHand, will soon be available to people working to recover hand and arm movement after a stroke. And it works by using a technology called BCI, short for brain-computer interface. In fact, it is the first stroke-rehabilitation device that relies on BCI. The device is not yet available to patients, but its developer, a Washington University startup called Neurolutions Inc., is preparing to bring the device to market.
