FDA approves virtual reality rehab device for stroke, brain injury patients

The Food and Drug Administration on Wednesday approved MindMaze's upper-limb rehabilitation platform, MindMotion Pro.

The neuro-technology platform uses 3-D motion tracking cameras, creating a virtual reality environment to aid stroke patients and individuals with other traumatic injuries.

The platform maps patients' movements onto 3-D avatars and leads them through various rehabilitation exercises based on "standardized neurorehabilitation principles," according to a news release.

Patients can use the platform as soon as four days post-stroke.
