Neurorehabilitation for Stroke & Multiple Sclerosis

recoveriX is a brain-computer interface technology that helps the brain rewire itself to relearn lost motor functions.

Improving functional abilities

If stroke, multiple sclerosis or traumatic brain injury affect the ability to move, it isn’t necessarily lost! For that reason, g.tec medical engineering developed recoveriX Neurotechnology, a unique rehabilita­tive approach based on brain-computer interface technology that helps the brain rewire itself.

While giving the task to imagine a hand or foot movement, recoveriX provides feedback in real-time through muscle sti­mu­lation and visual simulation. This process induces neuro­pla­sti­city within the brain to relearn lost motor functions.

recoveriX for Multiple Sclerosis

Make a new start

It's never too late for rehabilitation!

recoveriX helps stroke or multiple sclerosis patients to decrease pain, spasticity and tremor which leads to further improvements of motor functions, concentration, passive joint movements, sensitivity, bladder control, sexual function, balance, gait and numbness of the face, body or extremities. It’s particularly striking that patients feel less fatigue and experience a decrease of foot freezing or foot drop.

recoveriX supplements physical and occupational therapy with the chance for a quicker and more successful recovery. It can be used in the acute, sub-acute, or chronic states – even 10, 20 or 30 years after the MS diagnosis or the stroke!

recoveriX for Stroke

recoveriX stroke and MS rehabilitation starts where the damage occurred: in the brain. The feedback loop from imagining to executing the movement is a very innovative way to reconnect brain cells. I see this success with many of our patients as well.

Neurological conditions such as stroke and multiple sclerosis (MS) can have severe and far-reaching effects on patients, including paralysis and speech impairment, that severely limit their quality of life. Most treatments for multiple sclerosis are often intended to slow down the disease’s progression, which can leave patients unable to walk and confined to a wheelchair.

However, hope remains for stroke and MS patients as recoveriX is the world’s first brain-computer interface treatment for stroke and Multiple Sclerosis patients. The neurotechnology aims to train the upper and lower limbs with impairments and has poven significant improvements in locomotion, gait, balance and movement control.

recoveriX therapy is brilliant because it uses a tested procedure that makes sure patients improve. The response of the recoveriX system is always based on the patient’s concentration performance and enables neural learning through precise biofeedback. This is very clever and easy to use for the therapist.

A fusion of three standard therapy approaches

recoveriX is a unique combination of 3 therapies

A neurological disorder might inhibit your ability to move, but maybe not your ability to imagine movement! Imagine a hand or a foot movement – the imagination triggers nearly the same activity in the brain as a real hand or foot movement. This is what exactly recoveriX uses for your therapy! With three different kinds of neurofeedback, recoveriX improves your chances for successful therapy.

Motor Imagery (MI)

Imagine a hand or a foot movement. recoveriX measures and analyses brain waves, which reflect the motor imagery and determines whether the motor imagery was correct.

Once motor imagery has been recognized, virtual reality and functional electrical stimulation will be activated.

The positive impacts

The responsible areas of the brain are activated by the motor imagery, which can facilitate brain plasticity. Unlike conventional physiotherapy, the BCI guarantees that actual movements only occur when people imagine the corresponding

The simultaneous activation of relevant cortical areas and peripheral neurons encourages Hebbian learning.

Virtual Reality (VR)

The simulation on the screen makes motor imagery visible. Patients sit in front of a screen, where they see hands and feet of an avatar. This gives patients the feeling of watching their own movements in front of a mirror.

If recoveriX recognizes motor imagery of the movement (such as a right hand movement), the avatar moves the right hand.

The positive impacts

This real-time feedback is very easy to understand. If a patient imagines a movement, then the avatar performs the movement.

The experience is similar to watching yourself in a mirror. It can facilitate mirror neuron activation.

Electrical Stimulation (FES)

For this stimulation, two electrodes are placed (for example) on the dorsiflexors of the wrist or on the leg. If the system recognizes a correct motor imagery, the muscles get electrically stimulated, causing a real movement.

This should help you re-learn how to initiate movement, and thus make movement possible again.

The positive impacts

The patient receives clear, user-friendly feedback through active movement. Just imagine a movement, and you can see your body move accordingly.

The patient is motivated because the experience repeatedly reminds the patient of the desired goal: being able to move again.

recoveriX made my days worth living again. Since therapy, my motor functions in my right hand improved a lot. I learned to move and control my hand again and I even got my job back as a hairdresser. I never imagined this could be possible. My arm and my hand now belong to my body again.
