We had the chance to talk with Mrs. Savin after she had completed recoveriX therapy. Watch the interview: https://youtu.be/llv6pwufnMw

Stroke - A Widespread Disease  Every year, around 15 million people suffer a stroke. About one third of these people don't survive. Another third suffer ongoing physical impairment. And sometimes people remain paralyzed. recoveriX re-connects brain and body. Also, when standard therapy can no longer yield any further benefit, recoveriX provides a second chance for improvement.

The Power of the Mind  A stroke might inhibit the ability to move, but not the ability to imagine movement! During recoveriX therapy, patients imagine a hand or a foot movement. A Brain-Computer Interface measures their brain activity. Virtual Reality shows the movement on the screen, which generates visual feedback in real-time. At the same time, imagined movement becomes a real movement through stimulation of the affected muscles. reocoveriX activates mirror neurons that help the brain find new ways to perform independent movement again.

Dr. Christoph Guger: "recoveriX couples cognitive processes with movements, and this is what makes rehabilitation effective. In one case, we had a patient whose arm had been paralyzed for 4 years. After only 10 recoveriX sessions, this patient could move again."
