After a stroke, muscle strength can be rebuilt through gaming.
However, those affected by brain injuries need long-term support to find their way back into their social lives.
Personal experience led English twins to develop an app which helps people start their neurorehabilitation journey, while relieving the burden on family members providing care.
Our brain is flexible, and certain functions can be rebuilt with the right support.
Like a digital butler, the app serves tried-and-tested personalised therapy exercises, and helps users go about their day.
The system learns as it goes, connecting patients, family members and carers, and recognising what form of communication or therapy delivers the best results.
By the way, our brain is a master at preserving energy.
