Welcome to the RAPAEL Home blog. We are excited to use this space to share company news, product updates, and clinical information with you.
NEOFECT is a maker of gamified rehabilitation training solutions for patients with neurological, central nervous system, and musculoskeletal injuries such as stroke. We are based in San Francisco, CA.
NEOFECT’s RAPAEL Smart Rehabilitation Solutions provide rehabilitation and training through games for patients recovering from medical episodes like stroke. Each game is scientifically designed to invigorate muscles and stimulate visual and auditory senses to reinforce neuroplasticity and accelerate recovery. AI built into the RAPAEL solutions suggests rehabilitation games based on patients’ preferences and progress, delivering customized, optimal therapy for patients.
Home-based RAPAEL Smart Rehabilitation Solutions :
- The RAPAEL Smart Glove, a 2017 CES Innovation Award winner, is a wearable hand rehabilitation solution that connects via Bluetooth to a screen where patients participate in immersive, game-based training tasks. Patients can “pour the wine” or “squeeze the orange” and see their movements mirrored and measured on-screen.
2. The RAPAEL Smart Kids is a wearable hand rehabilitation solution designed for children ages 5-15 years old. Similar to the RAPAEL Smart Glove, Smart Kids offers a variety of fun games that mimic activities of daily life.
3. The RAPAEL Smart Board is an upper limb rehabilitation training device for patients recovering from stroke. It offers three types of game-based exercises—conditional exploration, point-to-point reaching, and shape drawing— to improve patients’ coordination and active range of motion in elbow and shoulder joints.
4. The RAPAEL Smart Pegboard, a digital version of traditional pegboard therapy that offers three board shapes and 30 engaging games to improve hand/eye coordination and upper extremity function. A 2018 CES Innovation Award winner, the platform uses light to signal where patients should insert the pegs, and delivers auditory and visual feedback on patients’ progress.
Approximately 85 percent of stroke survivors give up rehabilitation due to cost constraints and distance to a treatment facility, so digital and at-home devices, like the RAPAEL Smart Rehabilitation Solutions, help overcome these obstacles and allow patients to continue training to regain their mobility,” said Kim. “Patients can purchase the devices to use in the convenience of their own home and still have access to physicians and therapists who can remotely monitor performance data to evaluate patients’ recovery and make adjustments to their therapy as needed.”
