Occupational Therapy Software

An innovative software designed specifically for occupational therapy with hand and upper extremity rehabilitation exercises for the Meta/Oculus Quest or Quest 2 virtual reality headset.

Immersive Virtual Rehabilitation allows you to train hand function, upper extremity range of motion, activities of daily living, grasps or praxias… without using any controllers or special gloves!

Why is a software specifically designed for occupational therapy needed?

This innovative technique was created by experienced clinicians and specifically designed with a clinical goal in mind. In a gamified virtual environment, patients can easily train manipulation tasks, without requiring any controllers or having to disinfect or calibrate any sensors. All of this, thank to hand tracking technology.

The Rehametrics virtual reality software provides an analytical methodology for training upper extremity and head range of motion. At the same time, patients will be immersed in an engaging virtual environment which will increase patient participation. Moreover, from the screen of an external computer, clinicians can follow -in detail- what their patients are doing within the virtual reality headset, while allowing them to make adjustments and changes in real-time on the ongoing session without having to interrupt it.

Main benefits of an occupational therapy software

Rehametrics offers exercises specifically designed for rehabilitation that implement numerous gamification techniques. Using games as a therapeutic tool increases patient motivation and patient engagement, which have proven to be very important factors in improving patient outcomes.

Clinically validated software

The Immersive Virtual Rehabilitation software from Rehametrics is a medical device that has the corresponding CE mark. Patients cannot hire this solution directly. It can only be used under the prescription and supervision of rehabilitation professionals.

Personalized rehabilitation treatments

The virtual rehabilitation exercises included in Rehametrics have numerous personalization options that allow clinicians to adapt prescribed sessions to the individual needs of each patient. Clinicians can modify exercise duration, difficulty and other parameters to personalize each exercise to the needs of each patient.

Increase patient motivation

Thanks to the immersive factor provided by virtual reality headsets, will ensure that patients remain focused during the task at hand, while participating in a more engaging rehabilitation exercise, which will result in a more enjoyable and fun experience. The use of gamification in rehabilitation (using videogames and similar techniques for therapy), will increase patient engagement during their rehabilitation sessions.

Full control for clinicians

Our solution enables clinicians to have full control at all times. On a computer screen, clinicians can simultaneously see whatever patients are doing within the Meta/Oculus virtual reality headset. Moreover, it enables clinicians to observe patient performance and, at the same time, perform session adjustments in real-time or to even change the exercise patients will use during the session.

Which patients can benefit from using Immersive Virtual Reality?

Rehametrics VR can be used to rehabilitate neurological patients to, for example, train a hemiplegic upper extremity but also, for physical therapy after a muskulo-skeletal injury. In other words, the Rehametrics virtual rehabilitation software can be used to train fine motor skills in any type of patient.

Increasingly more rehabilitation professionals are becoming familiar with the benefits of using videogames and gamification in therapy. As a result, in Rehametrics we decided to go even further by offering a software specifically designed for occupational therapy, which enables to train:

Benefits for Occupational Therapists

Immersive virtual reality provides a more engaging and intensive training which, however, is not a substitute but rather a complement, for conventional therapy.

Using Rehametrics VR, occupational therapists have 15 rehabilitation exercises and 2 evaluation tests available: the Box and Block Test (BBT) and the Nine Hole Peg Test (9HPT). As a result, clinicians can also benefit from the use of a digital occupational therapy software by obtaining:

    • Better treatment outcomes. By improving patient adherence and participation and automatically obtaining objective data on patient evolution.
    • Making life easier for clinicians. Rehametrics offers pre-designed rehabilitation tasks, ready to be used. Our software will guide patients during the session with simple instructions and feedback.
    • Actively searches for the optimum level of difficulty for each patient. Rehametrics analyzes patient performance during the session to adjust, at the same time, the level of difficulty of the task prescribed by the clinician. In this way, it is possible to use the optimum difficulty, the one that enables the best possible outcomes, in each session. However, clinicians can also modify -during the session, in real-time- the level of difficulty, the duration of each exercise as well as the type of object to be used, the level of movement precision requested by the software and many other exercise parameters.
    • A way to differentiate from competitors. Enables clinicians to offer new, innovative and attractive service to their patients.
