Rationale:
We provide a new and more effective way of neurological rehabilitation. Skull-brain injuries, strokes and diseases demand hard-to-reach rehabilitation. Our unique solution guarantees the availability of rehabilitation and greater effectiveness than other existing systems.
There are huge disparities across European countries, ranging from 2,500 patients to 46,000 patients per neurologist. Average waiting period for rehabilitation up to 960 days in Poland. COVID-19 has impacted access to rehabilitation even further and many patients reporting neurological symptoms

Details of the offer:
OVERVIEW

BioMinds XR it is a system that ensures holistic neurological rehabilitation at every stage of the disease and recovery under constant supervision of a specialist – in the period right after falling ill, during rehabilitation at the center, at home. It provides individually tailored physical, cognitive, and psychological rehabilitation in an augmented reality environment. The entire system is characterized by the individualization of the therapeutic process, setting the exercises in the scenery of everyday activities while maintaining high graphic quality. At the same time, using the eye-tracking, EEG, and NFir technology, we enable people with various language problems to start communication with the environment, restoring their ability to function in society. Additionally, for healthy people it allows to increase cognitive, psychological, and motor performance.

Based on many years of experience and market analysis, access to specialized, comprehensive, individualized specialist neurological holistic therapy is not available. Customers need to increase the availability of this form of therapy especially in COVID 19 time. Therapy, which at the same time is not expensive, but is effective and causes an increase in independence and a sense of satisfaction with the life of the sick person.

Existing systems are based on large devices in their size and contain a single therapeutic plane. This created logistical and functional problems – the therapeutic process required the use of several tools and hospitals had to adapt the rooms for these systems. The purchase of the system itself meant a significant cost.

MOTIVATION

BioMinds Healthcare aims to improve the quality of life of the patients and to increase the availability of effective comprehensive therapy.  BioMinds helps speed up the recovery of adults with neurological conditions (strokes and brain injuries, multiple sclerosis, Cerebral Palsy, etc.). These are chronic, incurable diseases, requiring long-term motor and cognitive rehabilitation.  We are also working on the system to provide access to the solution to us as specialists and members of our families for rehabilitation.
