MindMaze, a Switzerland-based startup is using virtual reality as a means of mapping and responding to brain activity in healthcare and hospital settings.
After raising an impressive $100 million in funding, the company launched MindMaze Pro virtual reality -- an immersive treatment recovery system for stroke patients in the United States. Balancing between entertainment and neuroscience, this tool uses motion-tracking cameras to help patients recover. The virtual reality experience uses 3D avatars to create customized exercises for the patient, helping in the rehabilitation of limbs through engaging and reactivating cognitive function.
Through the immersive and personalized exercises, medical professionals can accurately track recovery progress in a manner that's both physically and mentally engaging for the patient.
