Regain your Mobility!

Each year, around 15 million people suffer a stroke, with a mortality rate around 30 percent. Another third of these people suffer permanent physical disorders, which cannot be fully rehabilitated by standard therapy. Other neurological illnesses such as traumatic brain injuries and Multiple Sclerosis can also cause motor malfunctions, hemiplegia or spasticity. 

A prolonged period of mobility reduction not only affects the patient’s quality of life, but can also entail more serious complications such as pneumonia, thrombosis and contractures. Standard physical therapy often can't rehabilitate patients in the chronic stage after stroke. Thus, these patients can never regain satisfying control of the hand or foot years after the stroke.

This is when recoveriX comes into play, offering a new chance at rehabilitation!

Hand- & Foot Therapy

recoveriX is an innovative and unique neurotechnology for the rehabilitation of stroke patients and patients with other neurological deficits. It helps the patient regain functions of the upper and lower extremities.

recoveriX supplements standard physical therapy with the chance for a quicker and more successful recovery. Also, when standard therapy can no longer yield any further benefit, recoveriX provides a second chance for improvements. It can be used in the acute, sub-acute, or chronic states.

The recoveriX Effect

There are multiple positive impacts of recoveriX therapy ranging from decreases in pain, spasticity, tremor, improvements of motor movements, passive joint movements, sensitivity and, interestingly enough, in gait.

Patients also report that upper and lower limbs feel warmer and sometimes, even memory, concentration and speech functions improve.

  • 99.9% of patients improve spasticity in fingers and the wrist
  • 99.9% of patients improve daily activities
  • 99% of patients improve their gross motor functions
  • 99% of patients improve their mental performance
  • 95% of patients improve their fine motor skills
  • 95% of patients improve their concentration
  • 0% side effects

All these positive effects can be explained by the activation of both hemispheres by the recoveriX therapy.

recoveriTherapy Highlights

recoveriX Therapy has premiered 5 years ago in Schiedlberg (Austria), where the first recoveriX Patient has trained his brain after a stroke. 

Today, we already counted more than 10.000 recoveriX therapies worldwide.

recoveriX made my days worth living again. Since therapy, my motor functions in my right hand improved a lot. I learned to move and control my hand again and I even got my job back as a hairdresser. I never imagined this could be possible. My arm and my hand now belong to my body again.

#How "How does recoveriX work?"
Image

recoveriis a unique combination of 3 therapies

 

A neurological disorder might inhibit your ability to move, but maybe not your ability to imagine movement! Imagine a hand or a foot movement – the imagination triggers nearly the same activity in the brain as a real hand or foot movement. This is what exactly recoveriX uses for your therapy! With three different kinds of neurofeedback, recoveriX improves your chances for successful therapy.

 

Motor Imagery (MI)

Imagine a hand or a foot movement. recoveriX measures and analyses brain waves, which reflect the motor imagery and determines whether the motor imagery was correct. Once motor imagery has been recognized, virtual reality and functional electrical stimulation will be activated.

 

The Positive Impacts

The responsible areas of the brain are activated by the motor imagery, which can facilitate brain plasticity. Unlike conventional physiotherapy, the BCI guarantees that actual movements only occur when people imagine the corresponding movement.  
The simultaneous activation of relevant cortical areas and peripheral neurons encourages Hebbian learning.

Virtual Reality (VR)

The simulation on the screen makes motor imagery visible. Patients sit in front of a screen, where they see hands and feet of an avatar. This gives patients the feeling of watching their own movements in front of a mirror. If recoveriX recognizes motor imagery of the movement (such as a right hand movement), the avatar moves the right hand. 
 

The Positive Impacts

This real-time feedback is very easy to understand. If a patient imagines a movement, then the avatar performs the movement.
The experience is similar to watching yourself in a mirror. It can facilitate mirror neuron activation. 

Electrical Stimulation (FES)

For this stimulation, two electrodes are placed (for example) on the dorsiflexors of the wrist or on the leg. If the system recognizes a correct motor imagery, the muscles get electrically stimulated, causing a real movement. This should help you re-learn how to initiate movement, and thus make movement possible again.

 

The Positive Impacts

The patient receives clear, user-friendly feedback through active movement. Just imagine a movement, and you can see your body move accordingly. 
The patient is motivated because the experience repeatedly reminds the patient of the desired goal: being able to move again.

How can we train the brain to help stroke patients?

Frontiers for Young Minds provides scientific articles reframed into a language that can be understood by a younger audience.

Therefore, we submitted our recent recoveriX study and explained in an easy and more understandable language how recoveriX can be used for people who had a stroke and have troubles moving.

Here in Finland, we already have a reimbursement code for recoveriX therapy, this means that the social security system already pays for the treatment.

It's never too late for rehabilitation

Patients often lack further therapies to improve their motor functions. This is where recoveriX training offers a new chance! recoveriX trains the brain and therefore supplements standard physical therapy in the subacute or chronic phase - even decades after the stroke. 

Image

Early recovery in the acute phase 

When patients suffer a stroke or other neurological injury, they are hospitalized. In this acute phase, rehabilitation is most relevant and determine success of the mostly long-lasting recovery process. recoveriX is easy to use and mobile and can be used already with hospitalized patients at bedside.

Image

Make a new start!

When other therapies seem exhausted, recoveriX can help your brain to regain lost functions. It may improve your situation even years after the stroke when other therapies barely offer noticeable success anymore. It doesn't matter how young or old the patient is!
