Neuro rehab technology

Ten stroke innovations bettering stroke treatment and rehabilitation.

Here, SR Times takes a look at the ten innovations which are helping to better the future of stroke treatments and rehabilitation.

Mobility

Bioliberty – Lifeglov

Pioneering stroke rehabilitation tech developers Bioliberty have recently secured £2.2 million in funding in order to further develop its robotic glove which helps to restore upper limb mobility.

This new funding will allow Bioliberty to complete development of the trial product and finalise the development of its platform.

The lifeglov, supports rehabilitation for both the closing and opening strength of the hand, it also fills a unique gap in the market as it monitors key metrics related to upper limb mobility.

Anatomical Concepts – Tek Robotic Mobilisation Device

Anatomical Concepts’ Tek Robotic Mobilisation Device allows stroke survivors with limited mobility to be able to independently and safely stand, sit and move freely in environments that would have been previously inaccessible.

“From doing the daily dog walk to walking out loved one down the aisle, the Tea RMD empowers you to live a more fulfilled life.”

Motek – C-Mill VR+

The most advanced of Motek’s C-Mill range, the C-Mill VR+ features an instrumented force-measuring treadmill, augmented reality projections on the treadmill belt, an inset virtual reality screen, a safety harness, handrails, built-in body weight support, and a full suite of gait and balance games and exercises.

Simulation and stimulation

Gaumard – HAL S5301

HAL S5301 from Gaumard is a revolutionary robot that can simulate having a stroke, providing new groundbreaking training for nurses.

This robotic patient, which is being dubbed as the most advanced of its kind in the world, has now found a new home at a nursing training centre, and is already paving the way for future healthcare education.

Reach Neuro – Avantis

Reach Neuro has  recently received a breakthrough device designation from the FDA for its spinal simulation device, Avantis.

By using small electrical impulses delivered to the spinal cord, the Avantis helps to restore shoulder, arm and hand movements. According to Reach Neuro the device can directly restore a patient’s ability to control movement and help alongside physical therapy.

Interactive

GripAble

The GripAble Home platform allows stroke survivors with impaired mobility in their wrists and hands to be able to work on strengthening that mobility whilst at home through fun and engaging training activities.

The GripAble app also allows for therapists to create personalised training programmes for their clients and track their progress.

Learn more about GripAble on the SR Times Podcast episode they guest featured on.

Baffin Technology – Neofect range

The Neofect range from Baffin Technology, which includes the Smart Board, Smart Glove and Smart PegBoard that have all been designed to help with therapy and rehabilitation programmes focusing on neuroplasticity, hand eye coordination and hand movement.

MyndVR

Through the use of virtual reality MyndVR offers immersive 360 videos and interactive games that assist with post-acute rehabilitation. Helping to speed up recovery and “helping patients regain function in a way that is both accessible and enjoyable.” 

Artificial Intelligence 

Sanome

We spoke with Sanome CEO Benedikt Von Thüngen on the exciting developments with AI they are making. 

Sanome is developing a ‘human digital twin’ which uses AI in order to create an early warning system using biomarkers. For stroke, this could predict rehab outcomes in patients.

FAST .AI

A new app in development for smartphones called FAST .AI could help individuals who are having a stroke or the people they are with identify common stroke symptoms in real time, prompting faster emergency response.

Study author, Radoslav I. Raychev, says: “These early results confirm the app reliably identified acute stroke symptoms as accurately as a neurologist, and they will help to improve the app’s accuracy in detecting signs and symptoms of stroke.”
