Smart Rehabilitation Training Games for Stroke at home

Neofect’s Neofect Smart Rehabilitation Solutions provide rehabilitation and training through games for patients recovering from stroke. Are you curious about the games? Let's take a closer look at three games available with the Neofect Smart Glove.

Smart Rehabilitation Training Games

<1> Jewel Pong



Jewel Pong is a game that aims to eliminate all the jewels by hitting the approaching balls.

Training Methods

  1. Move the platform by using Wrist Flexion / Extension movements. Rally the ball back towards the jewels by controlling the position of the platform.

  2. Once the ball is blocked with the platform, it's sent towards the jewels, eliminating them when it hits them.

  3. Red beads appear when the sparkling jewels are eliminated. Extra balls are rewarded by hitting the beads with the platform.

  4. As you advance to higher levels, the platform moves farther and farther away from the center of the screen.
