NURH is proud to feature four companies bringing the stroke community the latest innovations in neurorehabilitation:

Penumbra
Penumbra, Inc. is a global healthcare company focused on innovative therapies. Penumbra designs, develops, manufactures and markets novel products and has a broad portfolio that addresses challenging medical conditions in markets with significant unmet need. Penumbra supports healthcare providers, hospitals and clinics in more than 100 countries.

Penumbra’s REAL Immersive System is a platform of products that leverages virtual reality to deliver engaging, immersive healthcare designed to promote better health, including furthering functional skills, cognition and stress management. Built on advanced technology with a growing library of VR-based activities and experiences, the REAL Immersive System platform is comprised of two product solutions: REAL y-Series for clinical rehabilitation and REAL i-Series for wellness.

Torque3
Torque3, a fast-rising startup, is developing a neurorehabilitation platform for stroke survivors with intense, deeply immersive, task-oriented therapy and advanced robotics specifically designed to induce the brain into remapping neural pathways to restore lost functionality. Torque3 will be offering free demo rides on their immersive, robotic-assisted simulator. This is your chance to experience this technology a year before it hits the market.

The Torque3 platform is designed to improve neurorehabilitation outcomes by enhancing neuroplasticity through our unique approach to task-oriented therapy. This approach is called TOT+™, where the patient performs tasks in an intense, deeply immersive, simulated environment. The simulator works their entire body along with experience-dependent, multimodal engagement of functional brain regions. This simulation is so immersive that the patient suspends their disbelief and perceives risk while performing tasks. Our hypothesis is that adding this perception of risk causes the brain to assign urgency and importance to the tasks being performed, and when combined with these tasks being novel and challenging, will result in improved neuroplasticity. 

Restorative Therapies

Restorative Therapies is the industry leader in iFES™ and has proudly helped more than 100,000 patients in more than 1,000 clinics & 5,000 homes.  It helps people of all ages (and their families) with neurological impairments or critical illnesses that limit mobility and who want to achieve full recovery potential.
