Virtual Rehab- Gaming for Health

By Priya Maloni, MIRA Rehab Added 29th July, 2016


MIRA is a medical software platform named MIRA to enhance physiotherapy treatment by gamifying rehabilitation exercises using clinically built video-games (Exergames). MIRA can be used both in the clinic and at home, where clinicians can monitor the patients remotely. MIRA helps patients perform the right exercises, gives them incentives to progress and monitors compliance and efficacy of the Exergames performed, to obtain faster recovery times. For therapists, MIRA offers a patient management dashboard for prescribing Exergames programmes and tracking adherence, progress and patient symptoms such as pain or fatigue. Our system is being used in 25 institutions globally and is used for a variety of conditions with patients of all ages. The system runs on a PC, and uses an external sensor to track patient interaction with the Exergames and to assess patient compliance. MIRA is a CE Approved Class 1 Medical Device.

MIRA’s first generation software platform – MIRA Clinic, utilising Microsoft’s Kinect system, has been used for over 3 years by public and private centres across UK, EU & US, such as Guy's and St. Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust, Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and National Star College for upper limb neurologic and orthopaedic rehabilitation, and in Fiona Gardens and Lowry Lodge extra care housing, for falls prevention.
