Abstract: The assessment of hand functions after hand surgery treatment is essential to address the optimal rehabilitation procedures for any patient. To this aim, the current procedures anachronistically rely mainly on manual goniometers (highly prone to human errors) and know-how of experienced medical staffs (potentially prone to biased judgment), so that there is room for improvements in objective measurements of hand capabilities and new technological systems are very welcome. In particular, systems based on sensory glove are gaining more and more relevance in acquiring hand movement capabilities. Within this frame, in this research the Range of Motion (ROM) for all fingers and the ability of participants (health vs. patient subjects) to repeat two ADL (Activities of Daily Living)-based tasks were investigated. As a result, the glove-based system was evaluated in its feasibility for the assessment of hand function in clinical practice and rehabilitation settings.
