Neuroforma - clinically verified system for stationary and remote rehabilitation

Clinical trials of the Neuroforma system

The effectiveness of rehabilitation with the Neuroforma system continues to increase thanks to the intensive development of the program. From the beginning, we rely on the knowledge and cooperation with scientists conducting research in various clinical groups. We collect the opinions of specialists using Neuroforma in their practice, we listen to patients who exercise independently. We implement projects that increase the value and effectiveness of the program.

Neuroforma - clinically tested program for rehabilitation

Project "Clinical TeleNeuroforma" - effectiveness study for people with HD, SCA and MS

The effectiveness of exercises with TeleNeuroforma was examined as part of a grant from the National Center for Research and Development (“Clinical TeleNeuroforma – clinically verified home rehabilitation system for people with selected neurological diseases”).

In the project, we developed new exercise modules to address the needs of people with Huntington’s disease, cerebellospinal ataxia and multiple sclerosis. 111 patients from 3 groups of diseases participated in the study. Improvement in motor and cognitive functions was observed in all three groups after just 6 weeks of exercise. The added value was the decrease in depression symptoms. Using TeleNeuroforma was engaging and motivating for patients, which was confirmed by a very high rate of regularity. Patients exercised on average at 87 % days, which covered the study. The project was carried out by a consortium composed of: Titanis Sp z o.o., Institute of Psychiatry and Neurology, Institute of Experimental and Clinical Medicine of the Polish Academy of Sciences, Polish Society of Multiple Sclerosis, Polish Huntington’s Disease Association, Association of Families with Cerebellar Ataxia.

New applications

Neuroforma is a system for interactive exercises which gains more and more applications. We work with scientists from various fields to improve and develop the functionalities of Neuroforma on the basis of the innovative research and help more patients.

Neuroforma in pediatric and orthopedic rehabilitation

Researchers from the Medical University of Warsaw studied the possibilities of using Neuroforma in pediatrics and orthopedics as part of the “Internship is a scientist’s success” program, implemented in 2014. The aim of the project was to assess the possibilities of developing a pediatric rehabilitation procedure and rehabilitation program for patients with orthopedic diseases with Neuroforma.

Neuroforma as a tool for measuring visual-motor coordination

In cooperation with the Rehabilitation Department of the Physiotherapy Department of the 2nd Faculty of Medicine of the Medical University of Warsaw in 2014 we conducted the research study to verify selected Neuroforma exercises as tools for measuring eye-hand coordination. The results of the study were published in an article that appeared in the Polish Journal of Sport Medicine (Słupik et al., 2015).

Neuroforma in rehabilitation of cognitive functions in patients with mental disorders

Scientists from the Institute of Psychiatry and Neurology in Warsaw in 2015. conducted research aimed at verifying the possibility of using Neuroforma in improving the cognitive functions of patients with mental disorders. As part of cognitive therapy, the Institute’s patients used the Neuroforma exercises.

Interactive exercises improving both cognitive functions and balance control

In 2013-2015, the project “DynamicCognition” was implemented, financed by the grant awarded to the founder of Neuroforma, Mateusz Kruszyński, in the Ventures Program of the Foundation for Polish Science. The project verified the effectiveness of the combination of cognitive and balance control exercises in the form of attractive computer games and tasks.

The results of the study were described in the master’s thesis by Justyna Wiśniowska (Wiśniowska, 2015) and appeared in the journal “Ortopedia Traumatologia Rehabilitacja” (Kruszyński et al., 2015).


Current events with Neuroforma

Neuroforma at conferences and trade fairs

Since 2013, we have participated in the most important events in the rehabilitation and medical industry in Poland. We have presented the program during conferences, we visit Polish and foreign rehabilitation equipment trade fairs. We are also present at national and international conventions organized by the NGOs working for patients with neurological diseases.

Below we present the most important events in which we participated.
