Functions of MotionReach®
training with MotionReach leads to both greater and faster recovery.*
Patients using MotionReach complete a number of sessions. In each session, the patient first performs
a fixed performance test, and then participates in intensive and adaptive training. The adaptive reach
training of MotionReach provides semi-automated personalized e-rehabilitation of arm functions.
MotionReach offers three functions of training, testing, and reporting of movement skills.
During testing and training, movement quality is assessed with both the touch screen for accurate hand timing
and position, and with the Microsoft Kinect v2 for hand path, arm (shoulder, elbow, wrist), and trunk kinematics.
The clinician may not always be able to monitor the session, but MotionReach will. MotionReach can
be used alone in a semi-supervised clinical environment (either in the clinic or at home).
* In a published peer-reviewed study with a prototype of MotionReach, 16 individuals with chronic stroke with
mild to moderate impairments performed two sessions of unassisted intensive reach training, with 600 movements
per session. Training resulted in significant 1-month improvements in movement time (20% on average) and
movement smoothness (23% on average). In addition, there was a significant improvement in the Box and Block
test from baseline to 1-month retention test (23% on average).
