RESTORE Skills (RESTORE) has launched a groundbreaking interactive software product for adult rehabilitation patients. The cloud-based platform turns any WiFi-enabled device with a webcam into a data-driven therapy tool that can be used within skilled nursing rehab gyms, at patients’ bedsides, at home post-discharge and virtually anywhere else.
RESTORE utilizes motion tracking, machine learning, and artificial intelligence to reinforce motor, cognitive, social and attention skills while tracking a patient’s progress. Its video-game-style activities identify and follow player movements with any range of motion as they sit or stand. The platform features hundreds of pre-designed skill-building activities for both individual and group sessions, with new offerings added on a regular basis. The software also affords therapists the opportunity to design their own activities.
A key element to the platform is its portability; no additional hardware is required. The Software as a Service (SaaS) product is delivered on a subscription basis, providing a cost-effective, end-to-end solution.
RESTORE is being widely marketed to skilled nursing operators, with several high-profile organizations already among its early adopters. “Therapists tell us that their patients – even those who have been therapy averse – want to play the games over and over, creating a better patient experience” Arden said. “Most importantly, these ‘players’ are making real progress with their therapy goals. In the PDPM era, this is a valuable tool in achieving optimal outcomes without a significant increase in therapy costs.”
RESTORE’s skill-building games range from ski slope simulations, to cooking classes and slot machines, and are designed to engage everyone who works with the patient – therapists, nurses and aides, as well as family members. Easy-to-read, detailed reporting enables therapy practitioners to monitor an individual’s advancement at every stage and adjust protocols as needed. Care teams can share patient goals, sessions and progress, which encourages consistency and enables optimal clinical outcomes. With RESTORE@Home, therapy practitioners can create in-home practice plans, monitor progress and maintain regular contact with their patients post-discharge.
