TeleRegain

TeleRegain is a technology that accelerates the rehabilitation of upper limb movement in stroke patients. This technology is in early trials and is run by researchers from University of Sheffield and clinicians from Sheffield teaching hospital.

The Problem

The current industry standard for post-stroke rehabilitation relies on three months of physiotherapy conducted at the hospital. However, it leaves a large percentage of stroke survivors with long term muscle weakness.

TELEREGAIN VALUE PROPOSITION

Brain Waves to Control Electrical Stimulation

Our design utilises brain waves to control electrical stimulation to rebuild the brain muscle connection. This form of rehabilitation has been found to improve the patients motor control over standard therapy.

Remote Rehabilitation

The portable nature of our device also allows patients to continue rehabilitation remotely. Reducing the workload for the medical staff while making the process much more convenient for the patients.

POST-STROKE REHAB

TELEREGAIN REHABILITATION

By training the brain and the muscle throughout rehabilitation, the TeleRegain allows stroke survivors to rebuild the brain-muscle connection.

Designed to be portable and easy to use, the TeleRegain allows users to obtain the best possible rehabilitation from the comfort of their own home.

Our technology aims to retrain this connection allows the patient rebuild their muscle control and regain their independence.

TeleRegain only stimulates the patient’s muscles when they think about moving them which helps rebuild the brain-muscle connection.
