Aphasia means losing abilities to communicate. The affected patient is forced to withdraw from family, social and professional life.
Aphasia causes despicable isolation. Unable to communicate, but with the intellect intact, the patient is locked alone with his thoughts. Research says that Aphasia has a more profound impact on the quality of life than symptoms of, e.g., oncological or Alzheimer’s diseases.
Inability to communicate makes it impossible for the affected person to work or take part in regular family life. Often the condition excludes young, otherwise able people from society and professional life. That inflicts enormous costs on the public health care systems and social welfare.
There is no solution to this problem, which we could call satisfactory. Standard therapy session takes 45-minutes with a speech therapist, which is a drop in the ocean of what’s needed. All over the world healthcare systems suffer from a lack of therapists. However, even if you are lucky enough to afford private therapy, it is still too slow, not very effective, or not effective at all.
The device we have designed changes quality of the therapy, enhancing and accelerating its results. It also makes it accessible and affordable, significantly reducing costs of therapy. Designed for easy use, enables both professional and home application.
Our device works on the principle of neuromodulation and electrical stimulation of the brain. The patient individually performs the exercises working with special software, while the device affects the activity of neurons in the stimulated part of the brain. Thanks to this, weak areas regenerate faster, and the patient recovers more quickly. Our device not only increases the effectiveness of rehabilitation. It can be used both in an institution and at home, so the therapy becomes way more convenient and cheaper.
