In their 2016 Guidelines for Stroke Rehabilitation and Therapy, the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association call for a redesign in strategies to treat stroke, a devastating and costly health problem. A redesign is especially needed for development of therapies that target the upper limb.
Mirrored Motion Works (MMW) is dedicated to meeting this need by incorporating a revolutionary new approach in the design of its rehabilitative devices. The approach combines video gaming, modern technology and a therapeutic method that links the movements of both arms in a mirrored manner to retrain the patient’s brain. It is an evidence-based, affordable path to progress (link to Research & Documentation).
We present here the Bimanual Arm Trainer (BAT) – a medical device that uses our innovative approach to regain function in the upper back, shoulder and arm. The BAT will be followed by devices for the forearm, wrist and hand.
