RAPAEL Smart Rehabilitation Solution is designed to induce neuroplasticity for hand function of patients with neurological brain injuries.

In order to enhance rehabilitation of patients whose extremities are affected by lesions in the central nervous system (eg. stroke), they should practice goal-oriented and task-specific motor skills repetitively. However, the repetitive rehabilitation process easily decreases patients' motivation and makes it hard to maintain an optimal challenging level of difficulty to induce neuroplasticity.

RAPAEL Smart rehabilitation solution applies the 'Learning Schedule Algorithm' to game-like exercises so that patients can remain motivated and perform exercises that are gradually challenging.
