RESTORE Skills has launched an interactive software product for adult rehabilitation patients that uses any webcam-equipped, Wi-Fi-enabled device as a therapy tool in the gym, at the bedside or at home post-discharge.
RESTORE uses motion tracking, machine learning and artificial intelligence to reinforce motor, cognitive, social and attention skills while tracking a patient’s progress. Its video game-style activities identify and follow player movements with any range of motion as they sit or stand. The platform features hundreds of predesigned skill-building activities for both individual and group sessions, with new offerings added on a regular basis. Therapists can also design their own activities.
“Our technology — the first to offer this level of mobility — provides a scalable platform to help skilled nursing organizations and therapy practitioners deliver positive rehab,” said Eran Arden, RESTORE’s founder and CEO. “At a time when therapy protocols are shifting, RESTORE enables the creation of more practice opportunities, the collection of meaningful data, and the design of therapy protocols according to a patient’s progress”
A key element to the platform is its portability; no additional hardware is required. The Software as a Service, or SaaS, product is delivered on a subscription basis.
“Thirty skilled nursing facilities that I work with are now enthusiastically using RESTORE skills,” Dan Peters, regional director of operations for Marquis Health Services, said in a press release. “RESTORE is that rare product, which is affordable, easy to use and effective.”
The skill-building games range from ski slope simulation to cooking classes and slot machines. Care teams can share patient goals, sessions and progress, which encourages consistency and enables optimal clinical outcomes.
