Proficio enables the user to see and feel engaging games that encourage intensive therapy. And, it displays scores that motivate the user while giving a therapist valuable data. The device can be set to actively assist or resist user movements as needed with minimal physical burden on the therapist.
Proficio offers a large 3D workspace, nearly matching the average user’s reach in all directions, and is easy to set up. Competing devices either restrict the user to a fixed 2D plane, limit the user to small workspaces, or take too long to set up. Proficio is based on several issued patents, and its operations are run by an experienced management team at Barrett that has worked together for years.
Beginning in 2016, Proficio will be used in some of the 30+ thousand rehabilitation hospitals, clinics, skilled nursing facilities (in the United States alone), and ultimately the home.
Today, Proficio is available as a device for research only. However, a clinical version will be registered with the United States Food and Drug Administration (US FDA) in early 2016.
