Neuromotor rehabilitation

Using visual illusion to help motor recovery after stroke

Our mission

Dessintey develops intensive rehabilitation technologies to help patients regain autonomy faster.

Our mission is to assist patients throughout their healing and rehabilitation journey.
Our technological solutions aim at increasing, diversifying and personalising their daily practice schedule from the moment they join the rehabilitation centre (whether neurological or orthopaedic) until they return home.

Dessintey relies on the latest scientific advances in the field of neurosciences and on a close relationship with clinicians to offer simple and efficient technological solutions.

Our innovation

Relearning how to perform a movement by watching over and over

Patients subject to paralysis or pain disorders experience discrepancy between movement control and the visual and sensitive feedback they get: it is indeed very challenging to relearn a movement when faced with constantly negative feedback, which conveys a sense of failure.

The IVS3 system replaces the image of the paralyzed arm by a positive image based on a movement performed by the healthy arm. By reinstating coherence between what the patient intends to do and what they perceive, this flow of illusions helps relearning and motor recovery.

The illusion of movement

Vision helps relearning

Vision is particularly important when it comes to learning new movements: in order to learn a new sport, a new gesture, we observe movements performed by other people and then try to mimic them.

Vision and movement are therefore closely interconnected: seeing a movement or making it engage almost the same brain areas.

So, every time we observe the illusion of a movement, our brain instantly and effortlessly simulates this same movement which helps in the recovery of this movement.

This is why we say:
“Seeing a movement is almost making a movement.”

The Dessintey technology

An « augmented assistant » at the patient’s service

Dessintey offers an AI-based technological platform to provide patients with a personalised care program.

Relying on the clinician’s assessment, the IVS3 device will be able to learn and recognize exercises that are best suited to the patient’s deficiencies.

IVS3 : Intensive Visual Simulation

A unique technology dedicated to the central control of movement rehabilitation

IVS3 is a unique technology dedicated to central rehabilitation. It allows to mentally and tirelessly repeat a great number of movement simulations.

This technology is meant to complement either a traditional rehabilitation procedure, passive mobilisation or robotic-assisted exercises and can be used by patients to practice on their own or with their clinician, several times a day.

Patients can then double their time spent on rehabilitation and have their progress and exercises monitored. The device is accessible to patients in the most fragile states, particularly to those in acute phases.

A new approach to mirror therapy

The IVS3 device relies on cerebral plasticity

The brain’s amazing ability to adapt allows the nervous system to:

  • Rebuild a functional architecture
  • Recover after experiencing disorders or neurological lesions

An “Augmented Visual Feedback” therapy

This therapy is inspired form mirror therapy and motor imagery, which were initiated in the US more than twenty years ago. These are referenced with a good level of proofs in the context of rehabilitation after stroke (cf. HAS (French National Authority for Health) recommendations 2012, Cochrane review 2014) but also in the treatment of pain disorders.
