SME Instrument: clinical research partners needed for development and validation of exercise games designed for physical or cognitive therapies
Summary:
The UK start up has developed a medical software that turns traditional physical therapy exercises into interactive video games. It is used both in the clinic or at home where clinicians can monitor the patients remotely. The company is currently looking for clinical/research partners to further develop and clinically validate exercise games designed for physical or cognitive therapies to apply to the SME Instrument call: Accelerating market introduction of ICT solutions for Health, Well-Being.
Description:
Physiotherapy is a long and difficult process for people in need of rehabilitation. Treatment plans can be cumbersome and a slow recovery can be dis-empowering for patients. Physiotherapy is an essential component of healthcare, while its complexity comes with the requirement of the treatment´s adaptability to each patient. All patients are unique, requiring attention and special care in order to fully recover and relearn, at least a part of, the movements once known to be simple.
The company´s mission is to provide to every person, no matter their disability or severity of their condition, the right to choose the best options for their treatment.

The UK company has developed a medical software that turns traditional physical therapy exercises into interactive video games, improving adherence to treatment. It is used both in the clinic or at home where clinicians can monitor the patients remotely.
The company´s solution helps patients perform the right exercises, gives them incentives to progress and tracks not only when they have done the exercises, but how effectively they are doing them. In this way it helps improve patients´ quality of life in a faster, easy and fun way while setting the standard for rehabilitative and long term care through compassion and technology. The system is not designed as a replacement of the physiotherapist, but rather as a new tool for the specialist to use in addition to the traditional treatment.
Currently, the product contains more than 10 games and more than 20 exercises targeting the recovery of the shoulder, upper and lower limbs through gross movements, as well as falls prevention (balance), containing exercises such as squats, functional reach, shoulder rotation/flexion, hip abduction, sit to stand and many others. The platform will soon be expanded to other packages in order to contain games for active ageing, cognitive performances, post-surgery for adults and so on.

The company is currently applying to the H2020 SME Instrument call: Accelerating market introduction of ICT solutions for Health, Well-Being and Ageing Well and is looking for research and academic partners that are willing to be part of the further development and clinically validation of exercise games designed for physical or cognitive therapies. The potential R-Y-D partners might take part to the EU project as subcontractors during the SME Instrument phase 1 and 2 project.The call deadline for the phase 1 project is 15 February 2017 and the company is looking to establish a first contact with a potential partner by the end of January 2017.

Partner sought

Partner Sought:
The company looking for research and academic partners that are willing to be part of the further development and clinically validation of exergames for different types of rehabilitation. The company is currently working on a grant proposal for the SME Instrument call of Horizon 2020 programme and is looking for a research partner that might join the project as a subcontractor for the R-Y-D activities. The SME is looking for partners that are able to contribute with clinical input and are willing to perform research for the clinical validation of the medical device resulted (software plus interaction sensors hardware), through feasibility studies and randomized control studies. The scope is to prove the therapeutic effect of the exergames as well as to evaluate the economic benefits of telerehabilitation with this solution that enables home based treatment under remote supervision of the therapist.
