Published 09 January 2017

Mobility Research, developer of LiteGait physical rehabilitation products and SMK-Link Electronics, a division of SMK Electronics Corporation U.S.A. and owner of Gyration Air Mouse products, announced that they will be showcasing Therapy Mouse at International CES 2017.

 A wearable motion-sensing Air Mouse, Therapy Mouse enables computer game-driven physical exercise for TeleRehab and Assistive Technology platforms, products and services.

“Developed through our partnership with SMK-Link, Therapy Mouse is an innovation that brings clinic-based physical rehabilitation directly into the home,” said Amir Seif, President, Mobility Research.

“Enabling computer-driven physical exercise, the wearable Therapy Mouse allows mobility-limited individuals to utilize PC gaming software in the home treatment of arthritis, as well as physical rehabilitation from injury and other orthopedic and neurological ailments and conditions.

“Through concurrent software partnerships, we look to expand our suite of LiteGait products offered with this technology.”

“With out-patient physical rehabilitation expenses projected to top $40 billion in the U.S. alone by 2018, the immediate opportunity for home-based rehabilitation products and services is clear,” said Paul Evans, President, SMK Electronics Corporation U.S.A. and SMK-Link Electronics.

“We are pleased to partner with Mobility Research to provide Therapy Mouse—a wearable motion-sensing Air Mouse enabling game-based patient interaction with their LiteGait Physical Rehabilitation products.”
