Loss of the capability to talk or hear applies psychological and social effects on the affected individuals due to the absence of appropriate interaction. Sign Language is used by such individuals to assist them in communicating with each other. The paper aims to report details of various aspects of wearable healthcare technologies designed in recent years based on the aim of the study, the types of technologies being used, accuracy of the system designed, data collection and storage methods, technology used to accomplish the task, limitations and future research suggested for the study. The aim of the study is to compare the differences between the papers. There is also comparison of technology used to determine which wearable device is better, which is also done with the help of accuracy. The limitations and future research help in determining how the wearable devices can be improved. A systematic review was performed based on a search of the literature. A total of 23 articles were retrieved. The articles are study and design of various wearable devices, mainly the glove-based device, to help you learn the sign language.
