“The objectives we try to reach with traditional rehabilitation are also achieved when using VirtualRehab, which additionally improves the adherence to the treatments and the motivation of the patients”

“With videogames like VirtualRehab, more brain regions are activated than in other kinds of traditional games because the execution of movements requires a planning which involves many more areas: the visual , hearing, motor and sensory systems. It’s difficult to activate all of these areas in normal therapy”

Physiatrist, Hospital Aita Menni (Bilbao, Spain)

"VirtualRehab allows the training of abilities such as balance in sitting and standing, weight transfer and transitioning from sitting to standing. It also allows upper limb training in reaching different planes and the retraining of functional movements in order to reach different parts of the body which is required to carry out activities of daily living.”

“Although at the beginning I was reluctant to use videogames, as of today, our experience shows that VirtualRehab is a viable, comfortable and simple to use tool which improves the patients’ quality of life”

Jayne Coulson

Physiotherapist, Basildon and Thurrock University Hospital, Essex

“Repetitive exercises are an essential part of treatment and rehabilitation for patients with neurological conditions, but they can become boring. And therapy assistants can be trained to support patients to use VirtualRehab, so that senior therapists have more time for other specialist patient care”

“It’s important for me to develop and maintain strength in my upper body and core muscles. I have to use my arms to move myself around, and I need to stretch and reach for things. Just from the exercises I have tried on the programme I can really feel I have don something.”
