FDA clears MindMaze GO neurorehabilitation platform, easing access to continued outpatient therapy


Mind­Maze Con­sol­i­dates First-ever FDA Approval for Inpa­tient and Out­pa­tient Neu­rore­ha­bil­i­ta­tion Ther­a­py (press release):

Mind­Maze, a leader in brain­tech, has today announced that it has obtained FDA clear­ance to launch its portable neu­rore­ha­bil­i­ta­tion prod­uct, Mind­Mo­tion™ GO, in the Unit­ed States. Togeth­er with Mind­Mo­tion PRO (which received FDA clear­ance in 2017), Mind­Mo­tion GO is the next offer­ing in the company’s con­tin­u­um of care, pro­vid­ing gam­i­fied neu­rore­ha­bil­i­ta­tion ther­a­py.

Now that both Mind­Mo­tion prod­ucts have FDA clear­ance, Mind­Maze deliv­ers a full spec­trum of neu­ro-care solu­tions for both inpa­tient and out­pa­tient recov­ery for patients in the Unit­ed States,” said Tej Tadi, CEO and founder of Mind­Maze. “Our unique capa­bil­i­ty to safe­ly and secure­ly acquire data through our plat­form is essen­tial for patient recov­ery and per­for­mance…”

The FDA approval for a series of neu­rore­ha­bil­i­ta­tion devices that focus on both inpa­tient and out­pa­tient care is unique…MindMotion GO dif­fers from Mind­Mo­tion PRO in both its tech­nol­o­gy and its intend­ed use cas­es. Mind­Mo­tion PRO is designed for patients with severe impair­ments and for ear­ly hos­pi­tal care, allow­ing for ther­a­peu­tic activ­i­ties as ear­ly as four days after a neu­ro­log­i­cal inci­dent. Mind­Mo­tion GO focus­es on medi­um and light sever­i­ty impair­ments and also pro­vides con­tin­ued ther­a­py lat­er in the recov­ery phase, pri­mar­i­ly on an out­pa­tient basis.

Neu­ro­log­i­cal deficits are the lead­ing cause of long-term dis­abil­i­ty in the Unit­ed States. Each year near­ly 800,000 Amer­i­cans suf­fer a stroke, with direct annu­al costs esti­mat­ed at $22.8 bil­lion. A recent study esti­mat­ed that direct and indi­rect costs asso­ci­at­ed with neu­ro­log­i­cal dis­eases are an astound­ing $800 bil­lion annu­al­ly in the US.”
