Gesture-Based Virtual Reality Systems for Improved Results in Rehabilitation and Therapy
Hundreds of clinicians and caregivers around the world treat patients with GestureTek Health’s interactive computer-based therapy systems. Our achievement-based virtual reality exercise programs let patients have fun while stretching their physical and cognitive capabilities.
Immersive video technology projects a patient’s real-time image into exciting virtual environments. Patients perform clinician-prescribed exercises, games and activities, using body movement to control the program, so there’s no need to wear, hold or be attached to anything.
Proven benefits of virtual reality therapy:
Virtual reality exercise regimes are proven by research to deliver remarkable therapeutic benefits to physiotherapy patients. They also help those suffering from cerebral palsy, stroke, traumatic brain injury, autism and other conditions.
Patients experience improvement in trunk control, limb use, balance, mobility and gross and fine motor movement. They can also see enhanced cognitive and executive functioning and a greater sense of confidence and empowerment. Many patients find they require less surgical intervention and medication as a result of virtual therapy.
