Together, we are working to find solution for 5 themes in rehabilitation:

  • Pain management
  • Engagement and immersion to promote treatment adherence
  • Behavioural therapy after Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Lower limbs and mobility
  • Training of upper limb movements

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for people with different personal and professional backgrounds:

  • Patients
  • Healthcare professionals in rehabilitation medicine
  • Designers
  • Developers
  • Entrepreneurs
