Today, cerebral stroke issues are one of the most terrifying disorders in the clinical era, in which the most common people are highly affected. Worldwide, more than 20,00,000 individuals are exposed to stroke problems like hemiplegia, consistently, where 70% of them pass away at the instance of stroke. Among the survival group after the treatment, more than 85% of them are exposed to long term permanent disability. The affected community practice themselves to survive along with disability due to financial instability and reachability. While comparing with western standards, developing nations like India need keen attention to improve the medical standards. In order to treat the affected at the instance of stroke, home based methodologies shall be introduced for better performance and to improve the standard of daily living. This project involves a gripper motor based regulator for wrist and fingers incorporated with Arduino 328P. This device is a textile fabric tailored with 5 gripper motors to actuate each fingers as a part of post stroke rehabilitation.
