By facilitating 2-way communication. Amethyst Care is the voice technology companion that helps care for people with mobility-related illnesses at home, allowing them to live independently for longer.

By facilitating 2-way communication. We identified a gap in the market for user-friendly technology for people with reduced mobility and cognitive impairment. This stemmed from the fact that when looking at medication delivery, activity reporting, or event reminder input into the software, they couldn’t perform it due to the lack of fine and gross motor skills.

Our solution allows people to live independently in their homes for longer. Amethyst Care checks in on people throughout the day to see how they are feeling and can notify caregivers if it thinks something is wrong.

The caregiver will be notified if the patient is unwell or unresponsive throughout the day. It also has a memory quiz.

Expectations:

  • A collaboration with a partner, who has a good understanding of the rehabilitation space. Our solution is currently used for elderly people living alone and those with dementia. Support regarding the rehabilitation side would be really useful so we can implement this into our product development.

BioMinds Healthcare

Private company

BioMinds XR it is a system that ensures holistic neurological rehabilitation at every stage of the disease and recovery under constant supervision of a specialist – in the period right after falling ill, during rehabilitation at the centre, at home. It provides individually tailored physical, cognitive, and psychological rehabilitation in an augmented reality environment.

The entire system is characterized by the individualization of the therapeutic process, setting the exercises in the scenery of everyday activities while maintaining high graphic quality.

At the same time, using the eye-tracking, EEG, and NFir technology, we enable people with various language problems to start communication with the environment, restoring their ability to function in society.

Additionally, for healthy people it allows to increase cognitive, psychological, and motor performance. Based on many years of experience and market analysis, access to specialized, comprehensive, individualized specialist neurological holistic therapy is not available. Customers need to increase the availability of this form of therapy especially in COVID 19 time.

Therapy, which at the same time is not expensive, but is effective and causes an increase in independence and a sense of satisfaction with the life of the sick person. Existing systems are based on large devices in their size and contain a single therapeutic plane.

This created logistical and functional problems – the therapeutic process required the use of several tools and hospitals had to adapt the rooms for these systems. The purchase of the system itself meant a significant cost. 

We are an innovative company offering unique, new-generation healthcare solutions which will change rehabilitation for people after stroke or brain damages. BioMinds Healthcare aims to improve the quality of life of the patients and to increase the availability of effective comprehensive therapy.

BioMinds helps speed up the recovery of adults with neurological conditions (strokes and brain injuries, multiple sclerosis, Cerebral Palsy, etc.). These are chronic, incurable diseases, requiring long-term motor and cognitive rehabilitation. We are also working on the system to provide access to the solution to us as specialists and members of our families for rehabilitation.

Expectations:

  • We are currently undergoing clinical trials with the product. A product that wins customers in hospitals when we go to them with a request for tests.
  • Currently, metaverse and VR / AR / XR technologies in rehabilitation are gaining increased reputation. Additionally, now the demand for psychological, motor, and cognitive rehabilitation is increasing significantly.
  • We are currently looking for a business partner who understands the medical market – especially using advanced MedTech technologies.
  • The main area for which we need support is finance and human resources.
  • Thanks to the support of such a partner, we also count on better communication with large hardware partners Meta-Oculus and Microsoft.

FiberSalud Clinic

FiberSalud Clinic

Private company
The FiberSalud Clinic is specialized in rehabilitative treatment of patients with traumatological and/or neurological injuries.

We have performed rehabilitation treatment on more than a thousand patients, both with conventional techniques (Bobath, Kabat, Perfetti method…), and with the latest technologies (robotic exoskeletons, virtual reality and 3D gait study). We use a technological telerehabilitation platform that allows interactive personalized therapies, with or without a sensor, to assess and evaluate the patient correct performance.

We have recently designed an immersive virtual reality project, based on different cognitive rehabilitation therapies, which boost and accelerate patient’s recovery, and enable individual and autonomous patient´s rehabilitation.

The FiberSalud Clinic opened its doors in 2006 in Huesca (a province in the North of Spain, next to Zaragoza province, with population density lower than 17 inhabitant/Km2). We are experts in sports physiotherapy, rheumatology, traumatology and orthopaedics, neurology (Cognoscitive Therapeutic Exercise) and cardiac rehabilitation.

Thousands of patients trusted on us for their rehabilitation treatment during these years. We work on a daily basis with patients from associations such as AECC (Spanish Cancer Association), ASPACE (cerebral palsy patients), VALENTIA (intellectual disability) or A.R.P.E.R (Association for the Permanent Rehabilitation of Rheumatological Diseases). We are at the forefront of the latest rehabilitation systems, both with conventional techniques (Bobath, Kabat, Perfetti method…), and the latest ones such as robotic exoskeletons, virtual reality and 3D gait study.

Therefore, we have cemented our position as a centre of reference in orthopaedic and neurological treatment in Aragón. We have been working with our patients on a technological platform for telerehabilitation which allows us to design therapies with and without a sensor.

Thanks to this methodology rehabilitation results improved in more than 70-80% in patients with medullar injury or cerebrovascular accident for instance, in comparison with regular techniques. We were encouraged to urgently improve our patients’ attention due to COVID-19 pandemic, especially when most of them live isolated in rural areas far from medical treatment and advice.

At that point, we developed an Immersive Virtual Reality (IVR) project. IVR has been widely used in education, training and psychological therapies, and it is being increasingly applied in neurological pathologies, improving, not only evaluations and interventions but also, patient’s motivation to achieve the highest level of functional improvement. Therefore, we have no doubts that it can become a feasible and beneficial tool for rehabilitation.

Our proposal shows a significant degree of humanization of this technique, besides fulfilling a dual function. On one hand, personalizing patients’ rehabilitation environment, where they take part of their own recovery process which leads to great relief of the loneliness feeling and improving adherence to rehabilitation treatment.

In addition, by working globally on the patient’s physical-motor-cognitive capacity (considering movement not only as a simple muscular contraction but also as a result of a complex activation that grows in the brain activity), the professional obtains a large range of inputs to work with, to improve or readjust constantly the treatment.

Expectations:

  • We offer you our expertise on physical-motor-cognitive movement. And we are looking for partners who can design and manufacture:
  • 1) Realistic and immersive three-dimensional virtual environments.
  • 2) Virtual reality glasses and motion capture system (both hardware and software) accurate, portable, easy to use and reusable and/or easy to disinfect.
