Virtual Reality

Our virtual reality technology is fun and interactive, so you'll feel like you're playing games while doing therapy. Programs are designed to help with issues like problems moving your arms or brain-related challenges.

Programs can also be designed to support mental health and wellbeing. The system can also measure how you are doing so your therapist can keep an eye on how you are doing in real time and share this information with you.

Our therapists create personalised therapy plans just for you where you can easily use our virtual reality system on your own or with a little help. We want to make sure you can easily take part and keep an eye on your progress all on your own as much as possible.

Ergolet Ergo Trainer

The Ergo Trainer is a special device that provides assistance for individuals who have difficulty walking. It offers weight support, making it particularly beneficial for those with weak legs or recovering from brain injuries.

Comprising various components working together, including a ceiling-mounted lifting system, a supporting sling, a stabilising bar, and a hand control for adjusting weight support, the Ergo Trainer serves multiple training purposes such as treadmill walking, balance training while standing, and upper body workouts on the ground.

When using the Ergo Trainer, your arms can move freely, so you can practice walking in a more natural way. This helps you feel safer and more confident, and it reduces pressure on your joints. The device can be customised for varying exercise intensities, and as it can spin around in all directions, you can also practice walking forward, backward, or sideways.

Neurotek SMARTfit

The SMARTfit is designed to improve both physical movement and brain function.

The SMARTfit allows you to work on your leg strength and movement, balance and arm function at the same time as training your brain function through tailored play-based programs.

The SMARTfit can be used together with our body-weight-support system, so if you don’t feel confident standing on your own, you can feel safe in the connected harness or sling.

It can also be used by throwing or kicking balls to help you with specific return to sport goals.

MediTouch 3D Tutor

The Meditouch 3D Tutor is a unique biofeedback system that uses a sensor to capture your body's movements. It then incorporates these movements into a game displayed on a screen. This sensor collects precise information about how you move, allowing you to monitor your progress. Meanwhile, the accompanying software offers guidance and feedback to boost your motivation and enhance the accuracy of your movements.

The sensor can be attached to different parts of your body—such as your head, arms, trunk, legs, and feet—making the Meditouch suitable for a wide range of people dealing with various issues. For example, it can assist in improving shoulder mobility for reaching high shelves or help with knee movements to enhance walking abilities.

Neurotack e-Stim

Electrical stimulation is a technique that can assist in making very weak muscles stronger, especially when these muscles struggle to work properly due to certain neurological conditions. This process involves using sticky pads with attached electrodes placed on your skin.

The electrical stimulation encourages the nerves beneath the skin to become active, which, in turn, can help activate muscles. For instance, it can help muscles that lift your foot or straighten your knee when walking, or muscles that extend your wrist and fingers when you're reaching to pick up a cup.
