But, Recovering at Home is Hard Work
On your own, we understand that it’s difficult to properly do your prescribed exercises!
You only see your physio therapist at most twice a week. But you’re expected to practice therapy at home each day. It’s hard to be consistent and it’s hard to know whether you’re practicing in good form.
PROVA specializes in wearable technology solutions for in-home GAIT training and neuromuscular rehabilitation for patients with a brain injury, neurological disorder, degenerative disease, or a mobility challenge.
Our products uniquely promote exercise and neuro recovery in a non-invasive way by providing the patient with consistent biofeedback and coaching during everyday activity.
