University Design Project

I am currently a student at Loughborough University Design School studying Industrial Design & Technology. For one of my final year projects I am intending to design a product/service that aids stroke survivors through rehabilitation and the transition back to day to day activities. The brief also touches on making assistive technologies more aesthetically pleasing, moving away from large chunky white handrails for example. I understand that every stroke is different but would welcome any thoughts you may have towards my project, as well as any other issues you my have.
Many thanks in advance

I am trying to help some stroke survivors. I do acupressure on their hands and feet. The fingers on the hand stay tightly closed and I need access to the palm  of the hand.
I would like something to keep the fingers straight, so I can access the palm to apply pressure on some points.   Thank you for posting here and sharing your project.
