What MIRA is and how
MIRA is software platform that turns physical and cognitive exercises into clinical exergames, making therapy more convenient and easier to follow.
The system is designed as a tool for therapists, using motion tracking sensors to engage patients in their therapy, while assessing and reporting patient compliance.
And some key features and functionalities of MIRA
Exergames are a core concept of MIRA and a basis for the interaction between the patient and the application. Each exergame is the result of merging two key components: the exercise and the game.
- Can be tailored to patient needs
- Built based on clinical feedback
- Varied and motivating
- Include video tutorials
MIRA contains tools for Range of Motion assessments, as well as custom questionnaires and other means to keep track of patient activity.
- Questionnaires can be extended and modified based on clinical needs
Cognigames are games with a cognitive component which can be used for cognitive function. For ease of access, they can also be played only by keyboard and mouse, without necessarily needing a motion tracking sensor.
- Track cognitive parameters with no need of a motion sensor
However, combining the cognigames with the movements helps train their body and mind at the same time!
Custom exercises easily allow the clinicians to add new exercises to MIRA and use them with their patients.
- Focused on movement instead of the game component
- Easily extensible
The patient file is the place where all patient data from MIRA is aggregated for easy access to the patient’s activity and status throughout their treatment plan.
- Displays patient performance parameters
- Can be exported to .pdf and .csv formats
Patient and clinic management
MIRA offers features to manage and track large number of patients and clinical personnel working with these patients.
- Designed based on clinician input
- Clear and easy to use interface
- Means to manage patient home accounts
- Means to assigns patients to clinicians
MIRA reliably provides the means for patient treatment at home with features to track patient activity and to keep a permanent connectivity with the clinic.
MIRA safely stores data in the cloud and transmits it between
the patient's home and the clinic.
And what type of patients MIRA can help
MIRA has been designed and developed based on clinical feedback and research. The application is constantly undergoing feasibility studies, randomised control trials and various research projects.
Some of our clinical studies involve:
- Feasibility studies for neurological conditions for adults
- Feasibility studies for neurological conditions for children
- A number of case studies for particular diseas or affections
- An ongoing Randomised Control Trial on shoulder affections
- A Randomised Control Trial on Falls Prevention
MIRA has been successfully used in orthopaedic and neurological therapy for both children and adults, as well as in falls prevention and active ageing programmes for the elderly. Our studies show good results in these fields.
Our current patient groups fall in these categories:
- Neurological Rehabilitation
- Orthopedic Physiotherapy
- Falls Prevention
- Active Ageing
Accessible to most ages
MIRA has been used by patients starting from 3 to 102 years old. Our varied content with exergames and interactive exercises is designed to fit most age groups.
And our goal of data privacy and protection
MIRA is designed from inception to be compliant with security standards for the management of patient data. We are closely aligned to GDPR Regulations and offer security and privacy by design.
The application ensures the safe handling, storing and transmission of patient information for various organisations. Our storage provider is ISO 27001 compliant and based whithn the EEA.
And some guidelines and technical requirements
MIRA is designed for ease of setup and use. For even easier setup in clinical environments, we can provide ready-to-use consoles containing a TV, PC and motion tracking sensor. MIRA consoles are available for certain geographical locations, so please consider sharing your location if you are interested in a MIRA console.
