Neuro rehab technology

Newly-launched rehab robot wins two awards

MetaMotus Galileo, from Fourier Intelligence, ups the ante in neuro-rehab even further



The latest pioneering robotic device from rehab tech leader Fourier Intelligence has won two prestigious industry awards.

Fourier Intelligence was awarded the Good Design Award 2023 and the Shanghai International Design 100+ Award for the MetaMotus™ Galileo.

Combining the disciplines of biomechanics, rehabilitation and sports science, the revolutionary platform enables an immersive and safe environment for patients and medical professionals.

In line with the Fourier Intelligence concept of Rehab 4.0, the new platform will revolutionise and drive the rehab technology industry forward by enabling a sustainable and inclusive ecosystem that paves the way for further development.

With a career in robotics and rehabilitation spanning over two decades, the leadership of Zen Koh – co-founder and Global CEO of Fourier Intelligence – played a vital role in developing the MetaMotus™ Galileo.

Combining his knowledge and experience, he led the research and development team in ensuring that every aspect encompasses the concept of Rehab 4.0, allowing it to function as an open platform that propels growth and collaboration, with its versatility allowing different devices to be used cohesively with it.

“The MetaMotus™ Galileo takes the rehab industry further, allowing for even more collaboration between industry players and experts,” says Zen.

“The concept of Rehab 4.0 encompasses the utilisation of revolutionising technology that changes the way of conventional rehabilitation methods. As we progress, we can see many changes to the world around us through technology, which has become an essential tool instead of a luxury compared to two decades ago.

“A great example is our smartphone, a palm-size device that embodies multiple tools in one. Rehabilitation technology is no different, and we should embrace changes through advancements for the betterment of humanity by focusing on patient outcomes.

“The MetaMotus™ Galileo is designed to be an open platform for all, regardless of whether a patient uses a wheelchair or a prosthetic leg; we aim to create tailored solutions for them.

“The awards received are a welcomed motivation for our team as we strive to develop and deliver even more advanced solutions for better patient recovery and allow them to live fulfilling lives with their loved ones.”

Featuring biomechanical analysis capabilities by combining virtual reality and robotics, the MetaMotus™ Galileo establishes a revolutionary platform that enables users with different needs to train in an immersive environment.

Functioning as an open platform that accommodates customised protocols, it provides a dynamic range of rehabilitation methods. These encompass robotics-assisted training for upper and lower limbs, wheelchair training, dynamic balance training, prosthetic adaption, and gait retraining.

Its advanced Galileo X processor also allows for exposure therapy for PTSD and real-time multimodal data analysis. This fosters a comprehensive rehabilitation ecosystem that readily empowers therapists to develop new protocols and treatments for patient applications.

With its patient assessment capabilities, the MetaMotus™ Galileo can train patients for real-life scenarios.

Helping them regain complete independence upon leaving the healthcare facility and achieve functional independence, allowing them to reintegrate into society after an injury.
