Title: Neurorehabilitation Programmes in VR
Speaker: Isabel Van De Keere of Immersive Rehab Abstract: Transforming and improving neurorehabilitation services with digital therapeutic virtual reality programs. 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, ALS and spinal injury. Research has shown that retraining the brain can lead to important gains in mobility. By combining physical rehab with cognitive challenges, it is possible to obtain important gains in mobility and function. We propose that Immersive Rehab’s digital therapeutics neurorehabilitation solution can impact this significantly.
