Stroke: a Leading Cause of Disability
Every year, about 800,000 people in the United States suffer a stroke. Predictions show this number will go up every year, and that the average age of people getting stroke is becoming younger and younger. One of the most essential functions to recover post stroke is hand and arm function, but it is also the hardest to regain. With loss of hand function comes a profound decrease in the quality of life and independence due to inability to perform basic activities.
Virtual Rehabilitation System
By combining the use of exciting new technologies and years of research into brain plasticity, we have developed R3THA, a portable and affordable rehabilitation system for helping stroke survivors regain upper extremity function.
R3THA is the ideal home based telerehabilitation system: it is easy to setup, able to motivate the user for everyday use, generates progress reports to the user for self-tracking, and provides daily monitoring to remote clinicians. R3THA holds promise for long-term benefits and allows patients to access rehabilitation without the cost and transportation challenges associated with outpatient rehabilitaiton.
Funded by the National Science Foundation
NeuroTechR3 is proud to be funded by the National Science Foundation. NeuroTechR3 is a recipient of a National Science Foundation (NSF) Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grant to conduct research and development work on a telerehabilitation device that promotes neuroplasticity for motor recovery through video games, and helps stroke patients recover function in their fingers, hand and arm.
