Stroke survivors often face a troubling reality, as strokes tend to damage the areas of the brain associated with movement, leaving many unable to recover sufficient use of their hands and arms.

It has also been helping them see real progress. The game offers a fun, motivation-based therapy system that engages all ages and can record player data, not just for progressing through levels, but for sharing with doctors.
