BrainTap is an interactive arthritis and memory exercise device developed by James Taylor, Andrew Hunyh, Mason Shao, Adrian Abelle and Jayson Fong for a technology assignment at the University of Technology in Sydney, Australia.

Wearable Tech Glove Gamifies Arthritis Therapy

The wearable tech glove provides a skill and level based memory and fine motor skills exercise game. A randomized color sequence of lights (red, green, blue, and orange) is displayed on the accompanying retro-looking device.

The user is required to mimic the pattern with their fingers while wearing the glove. Aural, visual, and haptic feedback is provided by the glove to stimulate memory cognition and inform the wearer when they have won or lost.
