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 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.
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.
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).
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.
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).
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.
Mateusz Kruszyński gave a presentation on Neuroforma during the International Conference “Reaching forward. Access to employment and participation”, organized by the European Multiple Sclerosis Platform in Warsaw in 2015.
We participated in RehaCare 2015 in Germany, the largest rehabilitation equipment fair in Europe. It’s one of the most important European events for rehabilitation professionals and patients.
We participated in the 2nd Scientific Congress “Polish Rehabilitation” in Warsaw in 2016. The event was organized by the Polish Society of Physiotherapy and the Polish Rehabilitation Society. Rehabilitation specialists had the opportunity to learn about the newest functionalities in Neuroforma.
We presented Neuroforma to the participants of the International Conference “Research methods and treatment of Huntington’s disease – news”, organized by the Polish Huntington’s Disease Association in Warsaw in 2016. Mateusz Kruszyński showed the preliminary results of clinical trials using Neuroforma, carried out under the “TeleNeuroforma Clinical” project.
We participated in the SALMED International Trade Fair of Medical Equipment and Equipment in Poznań in 2014 and 2016
