Scientific evidence

Committed to excellence, scientific research and innovation

At Exeira we develop virtual reality solutions for patient rehabilitation based on scientific evidence that has demonstrated the suitability of the application of this technology in the health sector.

Several studies have shown that virtual reality can improve mobility, coordination, balance and muscle strength of patients, as well as it can be effective in the rehabilitation of chronic diseases, neurological and musculoskeletal injuries, and psychological disorders.

Evidencia científica

We share some studies:

Evidencias actuales sobre la realidad virtual y su utilidad potencial en la neurorrehabilitación postictus

M. León-Ruiz, M.T. Pérez-Nieves, S. Arce-Arce, J. Benito-León, D. Ezpeleta

La terapia con realidad virtual (TRV) constituye una herramienta poderosa que motiva a los pacientes con ictus a participar activamente en su neurorrehabilitación, y proporciona retroalimentación aumentada del rendimiento, con objeto de obtener mejores resultados terapéuticos gracias a la potenciación de los mecanismos de neuroplasticidad.

Effectiveness of Using Virtual Reality-Supported Exercise Therapy for Upper Extremity Motor Rehabilitation in Patients With Stroke: Systematic Review and Meta-analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials

Jiayin Chen 1, Calvin Kalun Or 1, Tianrong Chen 1

Through a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials, this study examined the effectiveness of using VR-supported exercise therapy for upper extremity motor rehabilitation in patients with stroke.

Virtual Reality Rehabilitation in Patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease: A Randomized Controlled Trial

Sebastian Rutkowski 1, Anna Rutkowska 1, Paweł Kiper 2, Dariusz Jastrzebski 3, Henryk Racheniuk 1, Andrea Turolla 2, Jan Szczegielniak 1, Richard Casaburi 4

This study compared the effects of inpatient-based rehabilitation program of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) using non-immersive virtual reality (VR) training with a traditional pulmonary rehabilitation program. The aims of this study were to determine 1) whether rehabilitation featuring both VR as well as exercise training provides benefits over exercise training (ET) alone and 2) whether rehabilitation featuring VR training instead of exercise training provides equivalent benefits.

Effects of Virtual Reality Intervention on Neural Plasticity in Stroke Rehabilitation: A Systematic Review

Jie Hao 1, Haoyu Xie 1, Kimberly Harp 2, Zhen Chen 3, Ka-Chun Siu 4

VR-induced changes in neural plasticity for survivors of stroke. Positive correlations between the neural plasticity changes and functional recovery elucidates the mechanisms of VR-based therapeutic effects in stroke rehabilitation. This review prompts systematic understanding of the neurophysiological mechanisms of VR-based stroke rehabilitation and summarizes the emerging evidence for ongoing innovation of VR systems and application in stroke rehabilitation.
