Stroke survivors now have better choices on their road to rehabilitation thanks to Penumbra and HTC VIVE. Together, this partnership has produced a more convenient and accessible long-term option for the more than 795,000 Americans who suffer a stroke every year [1] . With this VR solution, typical obstacles—such as finding available therapists or traveling far distances to a facility—are no longer an issue.

Stroke rehabilitation is an important application of the REAL System, but not the only one.
The REAL System has grown to include the i-Series, designed to address cognition and well-being among people with depressed and anxious moods, pain, discomfort, loneliness, and age-related challenges. i-Series’ tools address cognitive activation, distraction therapy, reminiscence therapy, mindfulness therapy, and relaxation therapy.

See all the details on how patients are repairing their bodies and minds to improve their quality of life when you get the full case study below.
