A lecturer at the Arkansas State University challenged her occupational therapy students to create a piece of adaptive equipment for a stroke patient.
Students did not disappoint as they came up with an invention called “HugAgain,” which allows stroke patients like Emily Sisco's father to give two-armed hugs again.
Emily, an occupational therapy assistant and adjunct professor at Arkansas State University, captured the moment her father, Kevin Eubanks, wrapping his grandsons in a massive hug.
"This is the first time I've gotten to hug my boys" said the grandfather, who suffered a stroke eight years ago.
“We created a strap that he could grab with the other hand and wrap around another person,” Lisa James, one of the students, told TODAY Parents.
One stroke patient commented on the video saying "I am grateful to the students who created not only the HugAgain but several other items to help me in me my everyday life".
