LusioMATE - Making movement fun

By Jamie Borg, Lusio Rehabilitation UK Ltd Added 17th May, 2021 Updated 4th Jun, 2021

Patients undergoing a physical therapy programme for rehabilitation often find undertaking their physical therapy boring. Adherence levels are often low and the amount of physical therapy undertaken by the patient is self reported when undertaking rehabilitation in the home or community setting or while not attended by their therapist as an in-patient.

LusioMATE, our wearable rehabilitation device increases patients motivation and engagement with their rehabilitation by making it fun, something they do more of while unattended by their therapist, as well as giving clinicians complete oversight by providing remote access to movement goals and accurate, real-time data.

About

LusioMATE is a wearable device that motivates patients to do more rehabilitation by making physical movement fun by combining movements with playing fun games. 

LusioMATE can be attached to any part of the body and can sense any movement greater than five degrees, so is an innovation that can be used in both fine and gross motor skill development.

Patients are able to do more meaningful and high quality rehabilitation in the absence of a therapist or can be used by therapists in clinic settings in conjunction with other rehabilitation equipment, which means that LusioMATE can seamlessly fit into a range of clinical settings and specialties such as acute in-patient stroke rehabilitation, out-patient clinics and home/community-based rehabilitation. 

Clinicians are able to access accurate, objective, real-time data allowing them to make informed clinical decisions regarding their patients movement goals instead of relying of self-reporting measures and they can adjust or create movement goals remotely. 

LusioMATE also supports the implementation of a telerehabilitation programme to reduce the number of out-patient attendances.

By helping patients undertake more physical movements and engage more with their rehabilitation programme, patients will likely achieve better outcomes which will also likely impact future care costs and ability to achieve employment or return to work. 

Clinicians and users all feed back that LusioMATE is an incredibly easy tool to implement into their practice and rehabilitation and Lusio Rehab support this through education and training as well as ongoing support.
