Improving motor functions and movements

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 hand, arm and foot movements.

New chances of recovery success

It's never too late for rehabilitation!

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

recoveriX supplements physical and occupational training and can be used in the acute, sub-acute, or chronic states – even 10, 20 or 30 years after the MS diagnosis or the stroke!

AN NEUROLOGISTS' OPINION ABOUT RECOVERIX

Interview with Dr. Tim von Oertzen

In a recent interview, Dr. Tim von Oertzen, a renowned neurologist, highlighted the benefits of recoveriX neurorehabilitation for stroke and MS clients. He emphasized recoveriX’s potential to train the upper and lower limbs of those with impairments, noting significant improvements in locomotion, gait, balance, and movement control experienced firsthand.

Before/After Results of recoveriX Training

This client performed the 9-hole peg test here. This test is a standardized assessment used to measure manual dexterity by timing how quickly an individual can manipulate and place nine pegs into a pegboard and then remove them one by one.

Here this client performed the Box and Block Test which evaluates manual dexterity and gross motor skills by assessing how many wooden blocks a participant can transfer from one compartment to another within a set time frame. It’s commonly used in rehabilitation to track progress and tailor treatment plans for individuals with upper extremity impairments.

The client performed the timed up and go test here. This test assesses mobility and requires balance and coordination. The test measures the time, in seconds, it takes a client to get up from a chair, walk 3 meters, turn around and sit down again.

recoveriX is measuring EEG activity while a client imagines a hand or foot movements. Once recoveriX detects a motor imagination, it triggers a functional electrical stimulation of the limb so that the limb performs a real movement. Here you can see the improvement in the hand movement of the stroke-affected hand.

This client performed the 10 meter walk test is a clinical assessment used to measure an individual’s walking speed over a short distance, employed to evaluate mobility and functional capacity.

The MS client performed the timed up and go test here. This test assesses mobility and requires balance and coordination. The test measures the time, in seconds, it takes a client to get up from a chair, walk 3 meters, turn around and sit down again.

This MS client performed the Timed 25-Foot Walk test (T25FW). This test assesses walking speed by measuring the time, in seconds, it takes a client to walk 25 feet (i.e., 7.62 m). It is a reliable and recommended scale for assessing people with MS.

recoveriX helps take rehabilitation to a higher level. This neurotechnology makes it possible to combine different techniques and improve the plasticity of the brain in order to restore motor functionality and increase the quality of life. Studies show that this unique approach produces long-term functional improvements, even in chronic clients.

A fusion of seven standard training approaches

recoveriX is a unique combination of 7 trainings

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 training! With three different kinds of neurofeedback, recoveriX improves your chances for successful training.

Motor Imagery (MI)

Imagine a hand or a foot movement. recoveriX measures and analyses brain waves, which reflects 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

Unlike conventional physiotherapy, the BCI guarantees that actual movements only occur when people imagine the corresponding
movement.

Virtual Reality (VR)

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

The positive impacts

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

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

Increasing the success of the training

recoveriX integrates cognitive tasks with movement exercises, which increases the chances of success of the training not only for stroke clients, but also for clients with multiple sclerosis.

Mirror Neuron training

Mirror neurons are activated when a person observes the same behavior in another person.

The positive impacts

When recoveriX recognizes the mental imagination of movement in the clients EEG signals, such as the movement of the right hand, the virtual avatar on the screen simulates the corresponding movement in real time.
This visual feedback is similar to mirror neuron training.

Bilateral Training

recoveriX encourages the client to practice motor imagery of both sides of the body, e.g. the affected right foot or the left hand. This approach is designed to support the activation of both hemispheres of the brain.

The positive impacts

Stimulating both hemispheres of the brain improves the coordination of movements and increases fine and gross motor skills on the impaired side.

Task-Based Training

By imagining the movement, the client controls the avatar and can trigger actual movement through electrostimulation. If performed correctly, the hand or foot is raised and the client can touch a small virtual ball.

The positive impacts

The repeated activation of the movement promotes new neuronal connections in healthy areas of the brain, which ultimately control the muscle movements correctly.

Constraint-induced movement training

During recoveriX training, the healthy limb is constrained to stimulate the impaired limb. Clients must repeatedly imagine the movements of both the healthy and the impaired sides.

The positive impacts

This method promotes coordination between the two hemispheres and can help to reduce spasticity and normalize temperature regulation.
