Project Title: Commercialisation Of Hand Arm Wearable For Use With Neuromersiv VR Rehabilitation Therapy System

Unlike many other forms of neurorehabilitation, standard therapy related specifically to the upper limbs has not evolved greatly in the last 20 years and as such, it is globally estimated that 66% of stroke patients alone do not regain functional use of their paralysed upper limb.

This equates to limited independence with daily life activities, reduced participation in society, reduced quality of life and a large economic and social burden on the healthcare system, caregivers and families.

Combining Virtual Reality, haptics and functional electrical stimulation, Neuromersiv aims to revolutionise brain rehabilitation therapy. The holistic solution builds upon the existing body of clinical research to enhance engagement of rehabilitation therapy and empowers stroke, spinal cord and acquired brain injury survivors to regain faster independence and improved quality of life.

The core components of the integrated, multimodal solution include a commercial, wireless VR headset, currently in development, proprietary hand/arm wearable and customised VR experiences focused on performing activities of daily living. The hardware and software components seamlessly link to a cloud-based clinician monitoring dashboard offering a real time overview of the therapy session and bio-feedback data from the patients.
