A fresh MBA pass-out is changing the world of post-stroke treatment with his new brilliant idea that is also quite enjoyable for the patients to go through. Who wouldn’t like to have their stroke-paralyzed limbs to get back into voluntary animation with fun computer games? I know I would if that was the case with me.
Hoyoung Ban shares the pain of those who suffer from post-stroke paralysis and worse have succumbed to their final doom from stroke as he could not share his joy of graduating from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology with his father, who passed away from stroke before he could.
Soon after this two of Ban’s uncles also suffered from stroke, while they did not lose the battle with death but did fail to complete the rehabilitation process. That was mostly due to the high costs of treatment to rehabilitate the functioning of their limbs. Such experiences and seeing his uncles lose use of their hands gave Ban the idea to use computer games as he had some personal interest with this issue.
