The RAPAEL Smart Board Uses Connected Games to Aid Healing

After injuries or surgery, people lose a great deal of the mobility and precision that they previously had, and the RAPAEL Smart Board is a new piece of technology that gamifies the process of regaining those abilities. The connected device includes dozens of different games specifically made to function with a connected grip and board, and those games require players to move through exercises that will help them to rehabilitate their upper limbs in the process.

There are two key outcomes that the RAPAEL Smart Board is aiming to engender: enhancing the patient's active joint movement range and improving their control ability. Games targeted toward the former include things like a cartoon-style ping pong match and cooking games that require motions like stirring. Games designed for improving control include takes on games like 'Bejeweled' and 'Pong'.
