Virtual Reality and Robotics Team Up to Heal
From NIH Grant to Primary Care and Neurorehabilitation.
Mike Christian, CEO of From The Future, LLC, and Dr. David Brown, Dean of the School of Health Professions at UTMB, are once again working together in using virtual reality (VR) to aid in physical rehabilitation. Their partnership began in 2017 with a National Institute of Health study. “Dr. Brown is a leader in collaborating with engineering professionals to research and develop products for the advancement of patient rehabilitation,” says Mike Christian.
“The combined powers of VR and robotics has the potential to profoundly change the face of physical and neuro rehab.”
With significant advancements in VR technology since 2017, Dr. Brown looked to Mike Christian to update the previous VR game application, called Lucid, for the newest hardware to integrate with the KineAssist MX therapeutic treadmill (KAMX).
