Unlock and accelerate the full potential of recovery using Augmented Reality (AR) Therapy.

Neurological recovery is a long and difficult process for patients with stroke, limb amputation, or CRPS. Select the medical condition you want to learn more about.

 

 
Every 40 seconds, someone in the United States has a stroke.  Stroke often results in paralysis on one side of the body.  Mirror therapy has been shown to accelerate the motor recovery process when incorporated into traditional rehabilitation therapy.

Stroke & Paralysis

Limb amputation is life-changing and dramatic.  The lost limb can haunt patients with phantom sensations which are mostly painful.  Medications have not been shown to be effective for PLP.  Mirror therapy can be helpful with minimal side effects compared to medications.

Phantom Limb Pain (PLP)

CRPS is a rare but debilitating chronic pain condition.  Patients report constant feeling of burning pain that disables them profoundly.  Intense rehabilitation therapy is the best path to recovery, but it can feel insurmountable.  Mirror therapy can help.

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) 

 

Neurological Basis of
Mirror Therapy

The exact mechanism of mirror therapy is still being investigated.  This is because our brain is such a complex and fascinating organ and we have yet to fully understand how the brain works.

 In stroke patients with paralysis or weakness, a part of the brain responsible for moving the paralyzed arm or leg is damaged.  In limb amputation or complex regional pain syndrome, the loss or severely limited use of an arm or leg leads to changes in the brain.

 By visualizing the normal movements of the paralyzed, lost or disabled limb, the brain is reactivated.  This reactivation promotes re-learning of motor function and sensory processing.  In summary, mirror therapy promotes "rewiring" of the brain when coupled with conventional rehabilitation therapies.
