Welcome to the future of rehabilitation!


Imagine a world where your rehabilitation after injury or surgery is not only effective, but also engaging and even fun.


That's exactly what virtual reality rehabilitation offers.


Let's explore how this innovative technology is transforming rehabilitation for patients, and why it could well be the key to your recovery.

What is virtual reality rehabilitation?

Definition and basic principles

Virtual reality rehabilitation uses simulated environments to help patients recover their physical and cognitive functions.


Wearing a virtual reality headset, patients are immersed in interactive scenarios. These scenes stimulate their brains and bodies in a controlled, targeted way.


You are no longer simply an external observer of images in front of a screen. You become an active participant within the virtual world. 

The technology behind virtual reality rehabilitation

Behind this apparent magic lies a combination of motion sensors, advanced software and high-quality virtual reality headsets.


These technologies work together to create an immersive experience. This can then be adapted by the healthcare professional to the specific needs of each patient.

Virtual reality in rehabilitation
at KineQuantum


KineQuantum is at the forefront of this revolution. Our approach combines medical expertise and technological innovation to create cutting-edge virtual reality rehabilitation programs.

How it works

KineQuantum turns your rehabilitation exercises into fun video games. These video games are easy to understand, motivating and fun.


Underneath this apparent simplicity, they are actually physical rehabilitation exercises. Your physiotherapist chooses the difficulty, maximum amplitude and other parameters for you.


During the games, visual and audible indications help you to perform the movements correctly in real time. An intelligent difficulty system pushes you to excel without discouraging you.

The benefits of virtual reality rehabilitation

Can you imagine shooting a bow in the Middle Ages, swimming in the Pacific Ocean or flying over a forest? And what's more, without leaving your physiotherapist's office?


Well, it's possible.


And how? With the use of virtual reality, discover a new way of rehabilitating yourself in addition to your usual sessions.


The virtual world gives you a fun experience that replaces the real world. It transforms the way you rehabilitate with your physiotherapist.

Efficient recovery

You focus on the goal of the video game, which allows you to be at 100% throughout your physiotherapy session.


Less tense, more relaxed and motivated, you go far in your movements, which allows you to rehabilitate effectively. What's more, the technique used follows your movements and helps you to correct yourself.


After the session, you'll see your score and a graph of your movements. From session to session, follow the evolution of your scores and observe your progress.

Patient commitment and motivation

Coming to physio sessions isn't always easy, especially when you have to do a lot of them.


One of the biggest challenges of traditional rehabilitation is keeping patients engaged. The immersive and playful nature of virtual reality makes rehabilitation sessions more attractive, thereby increasing patient motivation. 


In virtual reality, your rehabilitation exercises are transformed into playful mini-games.


This lets you forget you're at your physiotherapist's and have fun while making progress in your rehabilitation. Your sessions are varied, without you getting bored or demotivated.

Pain management

"Sometimes it pulls, other times it hurts or we're afraid of hurting ourselves. Often, we don't dare go through with our movements" explains one patient.


With a few playful exercises, we realize that this psychological obstacle can be overcome.


Absorbed in the game, you stop thinking about pain. In fact, you feel it much less.


By diverting the patient's attention and immersing him or her in a relaxing environment, the perception of pain can be significantly reduced.

Clinical applications of virtual reality rehabilitation

Numerous clinical trials and publications have been published on the therapeutic benefits of medical virtual reality. This innovative technology is attracting growing interest in the field of functional rehabilitation. 

Clinical studies

Advances in this field are often the product of work between companies manufacturing virtual reality medical devices and clinical research centers.


For example, a study was carried out at Cochin Hospital in Paris. It focused on the use of the KineQuantum VR headset for chronic neck pain. It showed that virtual reality rehabilitation sessions were feasible for patients with chronic cervical spine pain. It improved cervical mobility and relieved pain.


Another study on the management of shoulder pain with KineQuantum was carried out at the University Hospital of Liège, Belgium. This experimental study demonstrated improved shoulder mobility, strength and reduced pain.

Official recommendations

In France, the Haute Autorité de Santé (HAS) recommends the use of therapeutic virtual reality. It recommends its use as a complement to conventional methods for the rehabilitation of arms and legs after a stroke.


Similar studies around the world have demonstrated the effectiveness of virtual reality in the treatment of numerous pathologies, including vestibular rehabilitation and Parkinson's disease.


Virtual reality is a recent technology, and current studies show a low to moderate level of scientific evidence.


It will take many more years to obtain solid evidence on virtual reality exposure therapies.
