About the solution

Immersive Rehab provides a personalised, engaging and clinically validated digital therapeutics solution in virtual reality to tackle the current limitations of neurorehabilitation, in particular for people with significant upper limb mobility limitations as a result of stroke, multiple sclerosis (MS), ALS/motor neuron disease and spinal injury. Research has shown that retraining the brain can lead to important gains in mobility. By combining physical rehab with cognitive challenges, itis possible to obtain important gains in mobility and function. We propose that Immersive Rehab's digital therapeutics neurorehabilitation solution can impact this significantly.

As mentioned, our current target groups are people with upper limb mobility limitations and poor fine motor function, in particular as a result of stroke, MS, ALS and spinal injury. These patients will be able to perform neurorehabilitation exercises by interacting with virtual 3D objects, something often not achievable in the real world.

We work closely with clinicians, therapists and patients during our development process, and are currently going through more clinical validation studies to ensure our solution provides the greatest value to our clinical partners and their patients.

About the author

What makes Immersive Rehab's approach to addressing current issues in neurorehabilitation unique is the personal connection of Founder & CEO - Dr Isabel Van De Keere - to the creation of the company. Ten years ago Isabel had a severe work accident herself resulting in reduced mobility, loss of independence, isolation and a long rehabilitation period. As such, Isabel knows the physical & neurorehabilitation space and field of work very well having been a patient herself.
