Demonstration of recoveriX
recoveriX is the first rehabilitation system for stroke patients that pairs mental activities with motor functions. The brain receives visual and tactile feedback in real-time, and that is what makes rehabilitation so effective. For example, if a stroke patient imagines a hand movement while receiving visual feedback through a virtual avatar, and tactile feedback through electrical muscle stimulation at the same time, then these patients might regain the ability to grasp again.
The activation of both sensory and motor functions is caused by mirror neurons. This stimulates brain plasticity and the brain will be supported in learning new ways to move the affected limbs again. The unique approach of recoveriX leads to a much higher level of motivation for the patient and rehabilitation is most effective. Repeated training increases the healing of the brain and leads to faster recovery from stroke-caused impairment.
The recoveriX system includes all components required to perform training, classifier generation, virtual-reality neurofeedback and functional muscle stimulation. It can be set up quickly, and is very easy to operate, making it a practical tool for daily use with patients.

“The BCI stroke rehabilitation allows us to treat even patients in a chronic state and to improve their motor functions. These conclusions are based on the experimental data resulting from testing the recoveriX system on chronic stroke patients at the Rehabilitation Hospital of Iasi, Romania.”

“recoveriX couples cognitive processes with movements, and this makes the
rehabilitation so effective..”
Mrs. Savin suddenly suffered a stroke. It came without warning, and left her right arm completely paralyzed. After participating in recoveriX-therapy, she was soon able to move her right arm again. recoveriX uses state-of-the-art neurotechnology that leads to success even in the case of chronic disorders. We had the chance to talk with Mrs. Savin after she had completed recoveriX therapy.
Watch the interview:
Repeated training increases the plasticity of the brain and leads to faster recovery from stroke-caused impairment.
recoveriX supports the brain in learning new ways to move the limbs again. Recovery from stroke will remain shorter and more effective.
The recoveriX gym in Schiedlberg (Austria) is a special therapy institution where stroke patients can get the new recoveriX therapy. In addition to recoveriX, patients can also get standard therapy to maximize their therapy success. Interested? Please contact us to get further information.
recoveriX can be installed in clinical institutions like hospitals, neurorehab or other therapy centers that are specialized in stroke rehabilitation. Physiotherapists or other related professionals can use the recoveriX franchise model and open a recoveriX gym.
We are actively searching for qualified professionals to open multiple recoveriX gyms in their locations. Are you a candidate?
Please contact us to create your individual franchise solution!
The recoveriX flagship gym in Schiedlberg (AT) currently offers recoveriX therapy for stroke patients, with a flagship gym in New York (USA) and Barcelona (ES) soon to follow. These gyms are also the perfect training environment for professionals. Learn the science behind recoveriX, the different therapy modes, and the handling of the system from first-hand experience.
Are you interested in learning more about recoveriX? We are eager to create a bespoke seminar or workshop for you.
