Get Well - Have Fun - Play Video Games and Aid Your Recovery From a Stroke
Limbs Alive Ltd was founded by Professor Janet Eyre and Mrs Janice Pearse, Senior Occupational Therapist, in partnership with Newcastle University and The Newcastle upon Tyne NHS Hospitals Foundation Trust to address the need for rehabilitation of arm and hand use after stroke.
They specialise in rehabilitation of Hemiplegia. Hemiplegia is the inability to move a group of muscles in one side of the body. When hemiplegia is caused by a stroke, it often involves muscles in the face, arms and legs. By making therapy fun by using interactive games and challenges, they seek to support rehabilitation and the journey to recovery.
Limbs Alive won the Best UK National Health Service Innovation Award in 2011
