CUREosity is revolutionizing rehabilitation based on neuroscientific findings.
Lack of high frequent therapies for the increasing number of patients with cognitive or motor impairments. The lack of neuroplastic patients and therapist friendly therapy concepts for severely affected patients with sensory or motor deficits. e.g. neglect, complete paralysis and accidental trauma. No fun and motivation in clinical enviroments. Late start (window of opportunity) and early end of therapy (Use it or loose it). Available therapy systems are expensive and inflexible.
Based interdisciplinary research in biomechanics, neurology and analogue therapies our team has created a worldwide unique mobile and modular therapy system based on Virtual Reality in combination with multisensory feedback, sonification and avatar-embodyment and mirrortherapy. Sensory and motor networks will be redirected and activated by adaptive algorithms. It supports the cognitive and motor rehabilitation of the upper extremities and is used to treat a wide range of clinical indications.
CUREosity is revolutionizing rehabilitation based on neuroscientific findings. Our CUREosity mobile therapy system uses VR technology to activate the neuroplasticity of the brain to restore the patients lost abilities. Through gamefication, the patients motivation for high-frequency training is sustainably increased. Over 700 million people worldwide need therapy caused by accidents, neurodegenerative factors or depression. CUREosity adresses the increasing need for therapy and improves the quality of care. Our therapy is available face to face and around the world using remote technology.
