Eodyne : Overview

The Rehabilitation Gaming System – RGS –  is a science-based ICT solution for neurorehabilitation and brain training that targets the motor and cognitive recovery of patients after a brain lesion.

RGS uses Virtual Reality and Gamification methods and has an advanced computer vision technology that provides accurate tracking of the body and limbs of the patient and the mapping in real-time of their movement into virtual limbs.

Eodyne’s technology is highly adaptive to the capabilities of the user via an adaptive mapping solution that helps to optimize the visual feedback to the patient.

THE REHABILITATION GAMING SYSTEM

AN ADVANCED NEURO-REHABILITATION TOOL

RGS is an innovative ICT Virtual Reality tool for the rehabilitation of motor deficits, cognitive, language and affective disorders after brain damage such as stroke.

A SCIENCE BASED REHABILITATION SYSTEM

RGS is based on leading edge research in neuroscience, psychology, computing, user interfaces and virtual reality. RGS uses training methods that have been scientifically proven to be effective.

CLINICALLY VALIDATED

RGS has treated about 500 patients and has been validated in a number of clinical studies published in leading scientific journals.

ADAPTS TO THE NEEDS OF THE PATIENT

RGS based treatment is tailored to the specific needs of each individual patient, from the acute to the chronic phase after stroke.

COST EFFECTIVE

RGS is cost effective for patients and their families. It reduces the costs for primary health care, providers, health centres and insurance companies by minimising transportation while optimising the intensity of rehabilitation training, diagnostics and monitoring.

ENGAGES THE PATIENT

RGS promotes the active engagement of the patient by placing them at the center of the rehabilitation process, they are in control of how they train following a personalized treatment approach.

 

AT THE CLINIC

After stroke RGS can be used at the hospital and in specialized health centres as part of the patient recovery treatment.

AT HOME

As a stroke rehabilitation programme, RGS can also be used by patients at their own homes since it is equipped with an integrated system for remote and personalized treatment, diagnostics, monitoring and advise.

 

 

 

FUNCTIONAL RECOVERY AFTER STROKE IS PROMOTED BY CAPITALISING ON THE LIFE-LONG PLASTICITY OF THE BRAIN AND BY PROMOTING ITS STIMULATION.

RGS integrates a paradigm of action execution with motor imagery and action observation. It combines a personalized motor training in a VR environment, exploiting brain mechanisms for action execution and observation, and a neuro-feedback paradigm using mental imagery as a way to engage secondary or indirect pathways to access undamaged motor function.

The underlying hypothesis behind the efficacy of RGS is that functional recovery can be promoted by capitalizing on the life-long plasticity of the brain and the assumption that neuronal plasticity is governed by only a few computational principles or objectives. The hypothesis behind the choice to combine movement execution with the observation of correlated action of virtual limbs is that  recovery can be accelerated and enhanced by stimulating those brain systems responsible for learning, plasticity and adaptation that underlay body function and behaviour.

The clinical trials that have been performed thus far suggest that RGS accelerates recovery of acute and chronic stroke and it is more effective then occupational therapy in the recovery of movement speed.

 

CLINICAL VALIDATION

The clinical trials that have been performed during the last 10 years have shown that training with RGS boosts recovery in the acute, sub acute and chronic phases of stroke. Most importantly, the patients maintain the improvements achieved while training for a long time. This not only means improvement in speed of movement and range but esepcially improvements in the function of the arms and hands. The clinical trials have shown that RGS combined with standard therapy is more effective in promoting recovery of function when compared to Occupational Therapy alone. RGS is the only system in the world with such an outstanding clinical track record.
