Key Benefits

Motivating patients towards exercising during rehabilitation is a challenge, especially if the treatment containts highly repetitive and painful exercises. MIRA is tackling this and similar problems through an innovative and convenient approach.

By measuring certain parameters, MIRA can easily track the patient's progress through rehab.
Kinect

Better for patients

To keep the patient engaged and motivated throughout the therapy, MIRA uses games, which are built based on best clinical practice and expertise from specialist physiotherapists. Patients are able to progress to different levels within the games, whilst performing rehabilitating movements at the same time.
Exergames

The exergames are throughly explained and easy to follow.
Usable at home

Usable at home

The application can also be used at home, inbetween rehab sessions at the clinic.

Better for clinicians

When a patient is playing one of MIRA’s games, the system tracks the patient’s performance, measuring certain parameters, such as the speed at which the patient performed a movement. This way, the clinician can easily find out how the patient is performing the given exercises and can adjust the patient’s therapy schedule accordingly.
Custom Treatement Plans

Custom Treatment Plans

The application is fully customizable, based on patholgy and other patient conditions.
Constant Monitorization

Constant Monitoring

The data gathered by MIRA can help asses how the patient evolves through therapy.

Increased patience uptake

The exergames bring an important extra motivation to the patients and motivated patients tend to comply to the treatment more.
