Aria is the sensor-based device for therapeutic upper limb treatment and neurocognitive training.
Aria offers cognitive exercises and interactive games focusing on free arm, wrist and hand movements.
The patient moves his upper limb in space, in absence of gravity.
The set-up is immediate: nothing to wear on the patient.
Rehabilitate while having fun: the software offers several challenging and recreational exercises based on active upper limb movements detected by a specific sensor.
- The graphic interface involves the patient and enhances the playful aspect of the treatment.
- The motor exercise is carried out within an immersive context: the patient guides a character in the execution of tasks of varying complexity or controls a cursor in the solving of quizzes of increasing difficulty.
- The exercise difficulty level can be programmed by the therapist or can auto-adjust based on the patient’s performance.
- Patients and therapists have immediate feedback on the performance trend.
- The level of compensation is calibrated according to the weight of the arm and the patient’s residual capacity of control and movement.
Range of movements detected by Aria:
- finger flexion-extension,
- wrist pronation-supination,
- radial-ulnar deviation,
- wrist flexion-extension,
- arm movements in vertical and horizontal planes (back-forth, right-left, up-down).
Motor recovery is never separate from neurocognitive recovery.
Aria proposes exercises, inspired by tests and activities typical of neuropsychological treatment, to train selective attention, divided attention, shifting abilities, visual-spatial exploration skills, memory, etc.
Colours, numbers, images, playing cards: the software proposes interactive cognitive stimulation exercises, tailored to the patient. The playful aspect and the combination of motor tasks facilitate the compliance level of the patient with cognitive deficits.
