Gamified exercises have been shown to motivate physical rehabilitation patients to increase their practice time, resulting in improved treatment outcomes. They hold the potential to empower therapists to develop engaging home exercise protocols that are more likely to encourage patient compliance and consistency both in and outside the clinic, which plays a crucial role in promoting treatment effectiveness. Implementing high tech devices and digital platforms can boost treatment efficiency by collecting accurate data on patient performance metrics that indicate progress toward treatment goals, allowing therapists to track patients’ activity and compliance both in real-time and between sessions.

QNIverse has developed QNI, a versatile interactive gaming and training platform for physical and occupational therapy. QNI is comprised of modular multi-touch multi-sensor tiles designed to connect in a variety of configurations and sizes. Originally created to encourage kids to interact with their friends through physical activity, the tiles are light enough to mount on walls, convenient enough to use on a tabletop, and durable enough for users to run and jump on when placed on the floor. The system is easily operated by smartphone, integrates with wearables devices, and is surprisingly affordable thanks to their proprietary technology protected by more than 30 patents. Since the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic and the consequential global demand for remote therapy solutions, QNIverse has been working with ALYN to adapt their device and activities for remote physical and occupational therapy. Therapists will be able to establish personalized treatment plans that implement the QNI system both in the clinic and at home, from determining a personalized treatment goal-based game repository for each patient to adapting activities’ appropriate speed and level of difficulty. With clinical guidance from ALYN, QNIverse is developing a library of games for the QNI system that implements therapeutic exercises. By adding AI-generated recommendations and personalization functionality, therapists will be able to design a treatment plan for each patient, remotely monitor their performance, and make data-driven clinical decisions to facilitate rehabilitation.
