SunBall is an exercise ball that uses interactive games with biofeedback to offer advanced options for virtual rehabilitation and analytics to help therapists and patients speed up the recovery process.
The SunBall exercise ball is an advanced biofeedback solution that uses interactive virtual games to enhance the therapy process and speed up recovery. The platform provides therapists with in-depth insight into the patient's progress and has a wide range of applications, from neurorehabilitation to physical and occupational therapy. It is designed to improve patients' functional movements by training their coordination and muscle strength and boosting their cognitive skills.
Developed by Gradient Labs, the SunBall is small enough to fit into the patient's hand. It reads sensor data and sends it to a computer, allowing patients to control various games specially designed for therapeutic needs. The platform includes five games in the starter kit – Ping Pong, Fish Race, Wave, Brick Breaks and Guided Therapy – and each of these engages patients in a series of therapeutic exercises using video feedback. The platform additionally increases patients' motivation by visualizing their progress on the screen and allowing them to instantly see the results of their efforts.
With a built-in analitics module, the SunBall offers key insights into patients' performance, enabling therapists to evaluate patients' results in real time and use diagnostic data to monitor their activity over time to see the progress they have made.
The SunBall comes with the SunBall hub, two exercise balls, a charging adapter, a Wi-Fi dongle and the software platform. The software is easy to use and offers a graph overview and a detailed view of patients' data, including force applied, total time and calorie expenditure. Therapists can find a versatile range of exercises targeting all body parts in the database and the company is always in the process of developing new games in collaboration with therapists.
Based in Brno, the Czech Republic, Gradient Labs specializes in research and development of medical technologies and rehabilitation devices.
