The Smart Therapy Ball
PlayBall is an intelligent Rehab & fitness therapy ball used with the PlayWork interactive recovery program.
IOT Therapy Ball
PlayWork’s therapy ball was developed on the basis of their experiences with rehabilitation patients and caregivers, and their expertise in developing cutting-edge electronics, therapy balls that offer patients and therapists perfect motion tracking data via smart integrated sensors that measure and track patient performance connected via Bluetooth to the PlayWork screen.
PlayBall is the only interactive physical therapy equipment that also measures the pressure applied to the ball. With it you can:
- Perform objective, irrefutable measurement of patient performance.
- Devote your undivided attention to supervising and engaging with your patients
- Analyze, and show your patient, how much he has improved, and where he should concentrate to optimize his performance at your leisure, once the work is done.
PlayBall also functions as a video game controller, enabling the patient to complete standard rehabilitation ball exercises in sync with playing engaging games, and receiving real-time visual feedback, empowering him to self-correct his technique and motions under your close supervision.
