Personalized Digital Medicines for Stroke Recovery

At Cognivive, we build our digital medicines on four key pillars: neuroscience, game design, virtual reality, and artificial intelligence. The result: fun, evidence-based interventions that motivate patients to do home therapy.

The Cognivive Design Methodology

  • CogniviveVR’s therapeutic framework targets essential movement components through the principles of clinically-validated neurorehabilitation protocols.
  • We develop our products with input from patients and clinicians to help create experiences with broad appeal and utility.
  • We strive for commercial-grade production quality so a patient’s rehabilitation experience feels just like play.
  • By automatically adjusting difficulty to each patient’s current abilities, games are never punishing or demotivating.

The Science Behind Cognivive

  • Cognivive’s constantly adapting environments exploit neuroplasticity in neural pathways, supporting functional gains through personalized therapeutic activities.
  • Our motivational characters and excitement provide positive support to keep patients intrinsically engaged.
  • Fully-immersive virtual reality creates neuromotor activity just like real world activities do, which is crucial to restore the brain-body connection that is disrupted by stroke.
  • CogniviveVR’s 3D motion analysis and task performance data provide quantitative metrics for dynamically adjusting challenge and tracking patient recovery.
