Improving Results With Immersive Rehabilitation


 

GestureTek Health’s gesture-controlled VR therapy systems have transformed the rehabilitation experience for hundreds of clinicians, caregivers, and patients worldwide. Our virtual reality exercise programs enable patients to have fun while stretching their physical and cognitive capabilities. By immersing the patient in highly engaging, achievement-oriented games, the technology has proven to increase motivation and concentration in rehabilitation regimes.

A patient’s real-time image is projected into exciting virtual environments where they perform individualised exercise games designed by their clinician to each patient’s ability and recovery level.. Body movements control the program, so there’s no need to wear, hold or be attached to anything.


 

Proven benefits of immersive VR therapy

Virtual reality exercise regimes are proven by research to deliver remarkable therapeutic benefits to patients with various conditions, including:

  • physical injury
  • cerebral palsy
  • stroke
  • traumatic brain injury
  • autism
  • post-operative recovery

Patient benefits of gesture-controlled VR therapy include:

  • improved trunk control and limb use
  • better balance, mobility and fine and gross motor movement.
  • enhanced cognitive and executive functioning
  • a greater sense of confidence and empowerment

Some patients find they require less surgical intervention and medication as a result of gesture controlled VR therapy.
