Intensive functional therapy for upper limb rehabilitation REAtouch®
Intensive uni- and bimanual therapy
REAtouch® by Axinesis provides intensive uni- and bimanual functional rehabilitation.
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 and cognitive engagement through continued motivational stimulation.
With more than 25 functional uni- and 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 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 uni- and 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 30 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
Uni- and bimanual therapy
For example, HABIT-ILE therapy, developed by Prof. Yannick Bleyenheuft
and his research team, provides intensive functional rehabilitation based on
the use of playful bimanual exercises. This method has been recognised by
the scientific community and health authorities thanks to several studies already carried out. It has been proven that combining REAtouch® with the HABIT-ILE method is just as effective as the method alone. This study proves that REAtouch® is capable of following neuro-rehabilitation recommendations. Interested in finding out more? Visit our page dedicated to the HABIT-ILE method.
Useful feedback, data and reports
The REAtouch® 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 has also been developed in collaboration with our academic partners.
