Re-training motor skills that have been lost due to injury, illness or simply disuse takes intensive practice. Repetitive exercises quickly lead to boredom and loss of adherence to a rehabilitation program. The NeuroGym® TIMTRAINER overcomes this challenge by creating an engaging and motivational environment for re-learning motor abilities.
Using a combination of camera-captured movement technology and NeuroGym®’s patented computer algorithms for movement training, the TIMTRAINER creates a fun and enjoyable environment for re-learning motor skills. The location of coloured sensors that are either held by or attached to the user is recorded by the camera and interfaced with computer games. Desired movements such as reaching, standing up from a seated position, weight shifting or stepping can then control a computer game. The range, speed and general complexity of the game can be changed to allow for the user’s ability and progress.
