Patients withbrain injurybenefits fromhome training
10 patients have improved their occupational performance from 0,3 points for the lowest improvement to 5,6 points to the highest.
The highest exercise intensity was 3 times a day with 10 minutes per session, while the lowest was 3 times a week with 5 minutes per session.
The Inimove is fun to exercise with and has been a contributing factor to coordination, strength and control of their paretic hand.
The acceptebility, usability and motivation is high when using Inimove.
Interviews with10brain-injured patientsshowed, that after using the InimoveComplexfor 4 weeks there hadbeen a positivegrowth in theiroccupational performance. In sevencases, there had been apredominantlyimprovement in theirlevel of performance.
The opinion of the toolis thatInimoveComplexhas hada contributingeffect oncoordination, strengthand controlofpatientsparalyzedhand. They saidInimoveComplexis fun to train with, but it is not always easy to evaluate whether it has had adirect effect onoccupational problems.
80% of the patients had a desire tocontinue to trainwithInimoveComplexafterthe 4 weeks of testing.
The results of the diaries show that the patients primarily worked out by themselves. The results of the interviews show that exercising with Inimove Complex amongst other things triggers a competitive gene in the patients and that the training leads to both physical and mental exhaustion. Some of the patients state that they consider the purpose of the training as being an improvement in the performance of the daily activities.
The results presented in this paper concludes that patients have experienced an increased motivation for self-training with Inimove Complex, since it evokes a competitive mentality in the patient meanwhile existing in various difficulty levels. Conclusively, the study indicates that Inimove Complex is a beneficial tool for self-training optimizing the rehabilitation and daily activities of patients who have experienced strokes.

What would you say is unique about Inimove?
Inimove is unique in itself, I have never seen a device that works so well as a challenging rehabilitation device but also doesn’t look like a therapeutic tool. It looks and feels more like a quality made toy.
What does Inimove offer above other therapeutic devices?
It is useful being able to use the incremental stages of difficulty which the device offers. We found it very useful for high level patients as it provides a new way to enable patients to concentrate on developing different motor and cognitive skills.
What improvement did you see in your patients rehabilitation?
We saw improvements in all our patients but it’s difficult to attribute their recovery to one particular device when we are using multiple therapies. However, Inimove certainly could compliment our treatment program.
Did you see the benefit in being able to move patients onto the more complex Inimove devices?
Yes definitely, you could measure patient’s progress as they use more challenging devices in the Inimove range.
Have your patients enjoyed using Inimove?
Yes very much, it helps when patients are enthusiastic during therapy sessions. Even our staff found Inimove fun to use.
Can you advice to which other neurological conditions Inimove could help with?
Inimove could help with many conditions including stroke, MS, Parkinson’s, elderly care, Pediatrics, to name a few
Inimoveas a means togreater activityparticipationof students withspecial needs
Results showed that the use of Inimove tools gives the student a greater peace, greater concentration, better focus and maintain the student in the activity during use. Results showed, however, that the impact was very short and quickly disappeared after using the Inimove-tools. Results further showed potential to create a community around the Inimove-tool.
The use of Inimove-tools can encourage the prerequisite for occupational participation of students with special needs in the classroom and class community. There is potential for future transference by structuring the framework in the use of Inimove-tools.
