reFit Systems brings the medical market into the 21st century with modern software and digitalization. In addition to consulting and individual solutions, we also produce finished products for doctors, clinics and therapists. One example is the 'reFit Gamo' therapy system for children with motor deficits. The software enables specialists to plan and configure necessary exercises for their patients. On the gaming platform ‘reFit Gamo’, the patient can play motion-controlled video games in which the control of the games corresponds exactly to the defined exercises. The games include direct biofeedback. This improves long-term motivation and reduces distractions for a more coherent therapy. The sessions are monitored, stored and evaluated by reFit Systems' own algorithms in a secure cloud. The treating therapist can call up information on the progress of therapy, analyses and session details in order to make adjustments. Thus, the system supports and simplifies the work of therapists and patients during the entire therapy process.
