Brain Stimulation AB is a Swedish SME started in 2011 with the aim to provide an efficient assessment and rehabilitation after stroke and traumatic brain injuries. Exploiting brain plasticity results from research within a new concept of rehabilitation and diagnosis of cognitive impairments and disability of attention in stroke patients (Spatial Neglect). We address the global challenge of rehabilitating need for cognitive and upper limb impairments from Stroke, Dementia, Traumatic Brain Injuries, Parkinson and other degenerative brain diseases by using Enriched Rehabilitation.
Cognitive impairments as in the Neglect Syndrome is not easily discovered using traditional tests nor treated in suitable way or time and the normal hospital stay is too short to reach effect from training. Our innovative products meet the need of early detection and diagnosis as well as efficient rehabilitation of patients in clinics, rehab-facilities and at home.
Our New products using Mixed Reality will provide task-specific rehabilitation and support E-health- solutions, on-line support. The Early supported Discharge to home environment, is positive for both patient and healthcare but there must be an access to task specific training.
