Neurological injuries such as stroke, traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury can all cause debilitating upper limb weakness or paralysis. Quality of life is often severely affected when patients are unable to perform basic daily activities such as holding a glass of water, using a knife and fork, or buttoning a shirt. This situation has a huge economic and social impact as millions of survivors worldwide cope with these disabilities.
The best chance to recover after a neurological injury is through intensive physio and occupational therapy, however because of reimbursement limitations for post-injury rehab, and the high cost of private therapy and rehab devices, many survivors are unable to recover to their full potential.
Our mission: Transforming neurological rehab
At Neurofenix we believe upper limb recovery after stroke and other neurological injuries is poor – but it doesn’t have to be that way.
Founded in the U.K. in 2016, Neurofenix is a multidisciplinary team of highly qualified and motivated professionals who want to make a difference in the lives of neurological injury survivors and their families.
We worked with hundreds of survivors, their families, therapists and physicians to design our first product, the Neurofenix NeuroBall, an easy-to-use upper limb training device that costs a fraction of its closest competitors. NeuroBall can be used in the clinic and at home, making it ideal for both patients and therapists who want to maximize training between sessions.
We have received extraordinary interest and enthusiasm from patient advocacy organizations, medical centers and private clinics. If you are interested in becoming an investor or in working with us, please get in touch.
