Problem

Following a brain injury, such as a stroke, survivors are mostly left with the hand disability even after undergoing the conventional therapy.

It is estimated that worldwide more than 16,000,000 stroke survivors live with the hand disability.

Hand disability degrades the quality of life for survivors, prevents them to return to work and puts a big financial burden on survivors, their families, and the health system.

Solution

Neurofeedback training provided via brain-computer interfaces may enhance the quality of motions for hand muscles after neural injuries.

RehabSwift has developed an innovative brain-computer interface including software and hardware that enhances motor, sensory  and cognitive capabilities for survivors of neural injuries such as a stroke.

The solution receives EEG signals, and accordingly sends commands to the bionic hands. 

The bionic hands developed by RehabSwift are state-of-the art devices that receive commands from software and enable the user to receive real-time visual and haptic feedback.

Benefits

Recovers the hand movement

 

Restores the sensation in the arm and hand

Improves cognitive capabilities

Reduces sensory neglect

RehabSwift proudly launched its revolutionary brain-computer interface on 30 March 2022 held at ThincLab, The University of Adelaide.

This is the video shot by SciMex in August 2017, when the results of the proof-of-principle study were published in Royal Society Open Science.

In 2015, the Scope TV of Channel 11, which is CSIRO's educational program, recorded this video

when RehabSwift's founder was conducting his PhD studies.

About

RehabSwift is a spin-out of the University of Adelaide, based in Adelaide, South Australia. 

 

It aims to provide clinicians, physicians, and people with a neural injury with a novel solution for enhancement of their sensory, motor and cognitive capabilities.

 

RehabSwift solution involves an individualised  neurofeedback training paradigm. It has been demonstarted to improve the sensation and movement of the affected arm and hand as well as improvement of cognitive capabilities. 

 

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

John B.

What I've  achieved with RehabSwift technology in six weeks are just amazing!

Now, I'm able to do things with my arm and hand I haven't been able to do for years. I can clap!

John D.

I used RehabSwift technology for  my hand  that got affected by stroke ten years ago.  The technology not only enhanced my hand functions, it also improved my walking and balance!

I recommend everyone using  RehabSwift technology and encourage it to be in every rehab centre across Australia and the world, because  anything that makes you more conscious about your limbs  can only be a plus!
