Neurological rehabilitation in virtual reality

A neurological disease affects the central or peripheral nervous system. Strokes, multiple sclerosis (MS) and Parkinson's disease are just a few examples. These pathologies can lead to motor deficits, cognitive and sensory deficits.

 

The management of neurological disorders is a constant challenge for physiotherapists and occupational therapists. Technological advances have made immersive virtual reality a revolutionary tool in rehabilitation. KineQuantum is at the forefront of this innovation, offering a solution tailored to neurological patients, both in private practice and in specialized rehabilitation centers.

 

KineQuantum's therapeutic tool allows you to perform many different exercises dedicated to neurological and cognitive rehabilitation in virtual reality: stroke recovery, activities of daily living, mirror therapy exercises, neurodegenerative diseases, therapeutic games for Parkinson's, etc.

What is virtual reality in rehabilitation?

Virtual reality in rehabilitation involves using immersive, interactive environments to stimulate patients and improve their engagement in exercises. This makes it possible to create specific scenarios tailored to each patient's needs, making therapy more dynamic and engaging. By immersing patients in a virtual environment, their attention is diverted from the pain, which can reduce the perception of pain.

The benefits of therapeutic virtual reality

Virtual reality offers many advantages:

it increases patient motivation, enables progress monitoring and offers varied, personalized exercises. What's more, it can recreate everyday situations, improving patients' functional reintegration. Finally, virtual reality uses an attention-diverting process that helps to soothe pain during the session. It improves patients' overall comfort during rehabilitation sessions.

KineQuantum: an innovative medical virtual reality headset

KineQuantum is a virtual reality rehabilitation platform for neurological, musculoskeletal and other issues such as balance. The therapeutic virtual reality headset offers exercises for different rehabilitation needs.

 

These include mirror therapy, perceptual-cognitive training and motor re-education.

Testimonials and feedback

One of my patients with Parkinson's disease made enormous progress with the KineQuantum device. He's been a different man ever since!

KineQuantum opened up new possibilities for one of my MS patients in an electric wheelchair, enabling him to make movements he thought impossible. He really had a lot more ability in his elbow and shoulder. Nothing like what I was getting with conventional occupational therapy.

Neurological applications of the KineQuantum device

Stroke
rehabilitation

Rehabilitation after a stroke is crucial to recover lost function. KineQuantum uses immersive exercises to improve motor function in the upper and lower limbs, as recommended by the Haute Autorité de Santé (HAS). see more

Activities of daily living (ADL)

ADLs include essential daily tasks such as feeding, dressing and shopping. Virtual reality exposure therapy allows patients to practice activities in a safe, controlled environment. This improves their autonomy and independence.

Managing Parkinson's disease

 

 

For Parkinson's patients, virtual reality can help improve balance, walking and coordination. Virtual reality exercises also help to improve overall quality of life.

The therapeutic benefits
of virtual reality

Improved
motor function

Virtual reality allows a repeated practice and intensive movement, essential for motor recovery. Exercises can be adjusted according to each patient's level, for tailored stimulation and optimal progress.

 

Impact on patient quality of life

By improving functional abilities with more fun exercises, virtual reality contributes to a better quality of life. Patients gain independence, which has a positive impact on their morale and general well-being.

Increased motivation with fun exercises

Virtual reality helps patients stay motivated and actively involved in their rehabilitation sessions. By making exercises more fun, it contributes to a better adherence to physical rehabilitation programs.

Scientific data on
medical virtual reality

Post-stroke efficacy studies

Numerous studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of immersive virtual reality for motor rehabilitation after an acute or chronic stroke. Beyond the motor function of limbs, it enables functional recoveryeffective. For example, see this study or this one.

Studies on ADLs and IADLs

Research shows that virtual reality is effective in improving patient independence in ADL, compared with conventional therapy (see more). Instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs) are also improved more significantly than with conventional physical and cognitive training in seniors with mild cognitive impairment. Virtual reality offers a safe and controlled setting to practice these activities (see more).

Studies on Parkinson's disease

Studies confirm that virtual reality significantly improves balance, walking and cognitive function and coordination in Parkinson's patients. It is also well tolerated and considered safe for these patients. Read more
