Our novel digital therapies are fully immersive worlds that offer patients scientifically rigorous and emotionally engaging experiences to enhance their neurorehabilitation.

MindPod Dolphin for stroke upper-limb

Research indicates that people with neurological injuries and diseases benefit from greatly increased doses and intensities of behavioural intervention. A highly engaging animated gaming experience – based on evidence and prescribed protocols – MindPod Dolphin is designed to promote the recovery of motor skill and cognitive function. It comes with an anti-gravity vest that de-weights the arm and trains fine-motor control of the upper-limb by encouraging continuous exploration of its immersive oceanic environment.

In a recent trial of acute stroke patients, MindPod Dolphin’s immersive approach led to similar changes in the Fugl-Meyer Upper Extremity and ARAT measures compared to a dose-matched control intervention focused on high-intensity and high-movement quality therapy. Outcomes for both MindPod and the control intervention were superior to standard of care therapy with respect to the ARAT, but not the Fugl-Meyer. A larger trial, funded by the New Zealand Government, is about to begin in Auckland, targeting patients as early as one week after stroke.

MindPod Dolphin for Alzheimer’s, Ageing & neurodegenerative conditions

With research indicating that exercise, particularly complex sports, is an effective way of engaging and training cognitive function through movement, MindPod Dolphin is ideally suited as an intervention for neurological diseases requiring the training of residual cognitive function. A location-based trial in an assisted-living facility for patients at risk of Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia was just completed with positive results. The US Department of Defence has also funded a trial to use MindPod Dolphin to prevent the onset of dementia in war veterans with TBI.

Intento PRO for stroke upper extremity training

Intento PRO is designed to treat patients with severe impairment after stroke. The solution gives patients control of their arm, enabling them to move and train again. Thanks to the delivery of multi-channel electrical stimulation in a fully programmable and precisely controlled timing, meaningful upper-limb movements can be generated. A unique design allows patients to voluntarily control the stimulation, and coordinate the electrically generated movements with their intention to complete functional, goal-oriented tasks. The therapy is delivered according to an evidence-based treatment protocol, which demonstrated stronger efficacy at impairment reduction than dose-matched standard care. A larger multi-centre study is currently underway in Switzerland.

TOAP Run for Parkinson’s Disease

People with Parkinson’s Disease make smaller and slower movements than normal, causing them issues with dressing and many other activities. FAST and BIG movements rehabilitation programmes have been shown to encourage patients to produce bigger motions with positive effects on motor ability and quality of life. We developed TOAP Run, a serious video-game to support this insight and deliver “FAST and BIG movement” therapy. In a preliminary trial, the game was shown to reduce the incidence of falls in the majority of patients and a larger subsequent trial is currently underway.
