Bimanual intensive therapy for upper limb rehabilitation REAtouch®
Optimizing neuroplasticity and functional recovery with bimanual therapy supported by therapeutic gamification
REAtouch® is an interactive device for bimanual intensive therapy with a portfolio of therapeutic games suited for patients of all ages.
Intensive bimanual therapy
REAtouch® by Axinesis provides intensive bimanual functional rehabilitation based on coordinated use of both hands (HABIT-ILE method).
Designed to strengthen neuroplasticity and optimize functional outcomes, the device motivates patients to make more than 1,000 movements in one single session. This means 1,500 to 2,000 touchpoints, or browsing more than 60 meters on the screen.
The use of therapeutic gamification creates very high motor engagement through continued motivational stimulation.
With more than 25 functional bimanual therapeutic video games, patients are highly engaged in therapy time, which helps promote neuroplasticity. Movements, tasks and game complexity auto-adapt in difficulty according to patient performance.
The screen’s reactive surface allows interaction with dedicated objects, bringing the functional and bimanual dimension into the therapeutic experience. Patients can choose from a range of playful objects in multiple shapes for manipulation and construction tasks.
Each patient has a personalized profile with an avatar, shopping account and specific personal goals, encouraging active participation in their therapeutic progress.
Robust and easy to use
REAtouch® delivers intensive bimanual therapy activities with a platform that’s easy to use for therapists and patients. It encourages simple voluntary gestures/movements without guidance or facilitation.
The 43” screen (95 x 53 cm) has a tangible user interface with up to 50 touchpoints, enabling engaging touch and audio-visual interaction.
REAtouch® features a fully adaptable interactive area (including motorized lifting and tabletop inclination), allowing fast and easy adaptation to each patient’s needs and capabilities
Useful feedback, data and reports
The REAtouch® bimanual intensive therapy device provides immediate and rich feedback to maintain motivation and maximize motor learning.
Five assessment apps record and analyze every patient movement, providing detailed and helpful performance information.
Reports containing objective and comparable patient performance data can be easily downloaded at any time to review progress and plan rehabilitation progression. A hemi-spatial neglect app is also currently in development, in collaboration with our academic partners.
Intensive bimanual therapy with REAtouch® can be used for a large range of indications, including stroke, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease. It is suited for use across all stages of these conditions, allowing for broad patient inclusion.
The REAtouch® intensive bimanual therapy device has an estimated payback time of just 1.5–2 years.
Continuity of care
REAplan®, REAtouch® and REAtouch® Lite are complementary rehabilitation technologies covering the entire upper limb care pathway to enable faster recovery and better outcomes while reducing healthcare costs.
A unique technology platform can also bring REAtouch® and REAtouch® Lite together into a single patient interface for remote rehabilitation.
