MindMaze Combines Virtual Reality with Healthcare
MindMaze is a BioTechnology company that brings together a complex mix of roboticists, physicists, neuroscientists, and computer scientists committed to improving the life quality of brain injury survivors. The MindMaze team has developed and launched medical-oriented VR products that stimulate neural recovery. They translate virtual reality and neuroscience expertise into new fields of technology and health.
MindMaze: The Intersection of Neuroscience and IOT
The Swiss company develops user interfaces that include lightweight and wearable HMDs and 3D motion capture camera that deliver immersive VR, gesture/object recognition and augmented reality capabilities. It integrates these features with neuroscience-based protocols in order to design real-time feedback adapted to any user’s needs and abilities.
- Immersive Virtual Reality: Virtual reality offers a very stimulating environment much more efficient than traditional rehab settings. A virtual environment can be customized according to the patient’s needs and preferences, motivating them to maximize their training and rehabilitation process. Real-time multisensory feedback greatly improves patients’ awareness of performance and deficits.
- Motion Capture Technology: MindMaze also builds high-res motion capture sensors which provide position and orientation to enable real-time mapping of movement onto virtual characters. Body sway and posture are also monitored in order to optimize the visual feedback to the user.
Multisensory Technology with Multiple Purposes
MindMaze combines haptics, artificial intelligence, neuroscience, computer vision and virtual reality to build intuitive human machine interfaces. Its multisensory technology already commercializes for brain injury and stroke survivors. Its devices are already being places in many parts of Europe and Asia, helping hundreds of people. MindMaze also intends to make its platform more broadly available through licensing to improve VR optimized products that are designed for mainstream experiences.
“MindMaze’s next-generation human-machine interface is already proving itself in healthcare, games, and its potential for applications in transportation, defense and various types of media are now ready to be truly explored. We are excited to help MindMaze build on its achievements while seeing that both current and future partners have their collective visions realized.”
Said one spokesperson.
In the near future, MindMaze hopes to bring human emotion and connection to immersive virtual reality games and experiences. It also intends to continue the delivery of important clinical data and successful results both for doctors and patients. The company might prove to be a major healthcare improvements provider by using its platform both for motor and cognitive recovery applications.
