How it works
Dr. Dan S

Atlanta, Georgia

“I couldn’t use anything on my left side…It’s all about repetition, the more you do the more you get out so I can get a lot more out of this by having it at home. As a doctor I can tell you I have tried everything and this has made a difference… The amount of function I have now compared to what I had right after is probably 80% different.”
Tim M

Palm Springs, Florida

“…I had very limited movement in my right arm and almost none in hand… Within just a few days I noticed results. I now can make a small fist, grab things… And I haven’t even had this machine for a month!…” read more

” Now two months in from my starting point the hand mentor and no wrist movement at day one to now 2 months in, I can do all kinds of functional things. Flush the toilet with my right hand, brush my teeth with the help of my left hand… The hand mentor is actually saved my life!”

“I use e-stim, braces, finger spreaders, and try to get the hand to be open. BUT! This Motus Nova has done more in 7 days then all my other techniques combined. My fingers are open. I can pull open a drawer and release it. Wow!”

“Here is a video of Rob doing the peg board before he started using the Hand Mentor. Right hand (affected hand) = 21 pegs in 1 minute. He is at 12.87hours of therapy. Just now… his right hand got ALL 36 pegs in 53 seconds!!! What!?!?!?!?”

“I can honestly say that the hand mentor has helped significantly in managing and reducing the tone in my wrist and hand. And not to mention increased range of motion and wrist function since starting with the device!”

“I had very limited movement in my right arm and almost none in hand… I came across this web site and with the 30 hour challenge I said what do I have to lose. Within just a few days I noticed results. I now can make a small fist, grab things.”

“…His stroke left his right arm with having hardly any movement. Even manually moving it to bath caused pain. After the first days therapy there was less pain sometimes none. Therapist is very happy with his improvement…

Neuro-Recovery through Rehabilitation Hours

Brain injuries can be debilitating. But no matter how long it’s been since your injury or your age, every brain can learn and rewire. Every brain can heal. Unfortunately, there are no shortcuts to relearning your movements other than to put in the hours. The injured brain needs practice, practice, and more practice to make those new connections.

ionicons-v5-e

More Rehab Hours, Faster Stroke Recovery.

Science says hours predict recovery.

Clinical studies (Lang, et al. 2015, Lohse, et al. 2014) showcase that higher doses of therapy can result in faster functional gains.

You need more hours.

Stroke and brain injury survivors are getting a fraction of the hours of rehabilitation from the healthcare system.

ionicons-v5-e

More Rehab Hours, Faster Stroke Recovery.

Did you make the fastest gains during your in-patient rehab?

Most stroke survivors believe the fastest gains are made during in-patient rehab because of the proximity to their injury date. But that is not the primary reason! You most likely received substantially more hours of therapy (usually 3-5 per day) during in-patient rehab than you do now. This high dosage of hours was the accelerant to your recovery.

How many hours of rehab are you getting now?

Most stroke survivors report receiving 2 hours of out-patient therapy a week, which is significantly less than the recommended amount.

What if you could receive the same hours of therapy as in-patient rehab?

Motus users have seen gains after 15 years post stroke by putting in more hours of rehab per week.

15 Hours

Inpatient Rehab Hours per Week

2 Hours 86.7%

Outpatient Rehab Hours per Week

15-30 Hours 100%

Motus Rehab Hours per Week

Engineering a $20,000 hospital rehab robot to be portable and affordable for the home.

2013

Motus Nova Founded

On a mission to deliver neuro-rehab in every home through robotic exoskeletons guided by AI.

2016

A Decade of Clinical Trials

Designed to speed up stroke recovery by increasing the number of repetitions in a rehab session, clinical studies proved Motus robots can deliver clinical level of care.

Clinical Studies

2017

About 200 nationwide clinic deployments for Hand & Foot Mentor Pro

Motus introduced the first iteration of robots called The Motus Hand & Foot Mentor Pro. They were built specifically for hospitals and cost over $20,000.

2018

Launched Research & Development to bring Motus into the Home

The hospital setting limited user access to 2 hours per week. For survivors to benefit from the robots, they needed to use them on a daily basis. The only way to make this possible was to bring Motus robots into the home.

We spent 2 years engineering the device with two goals in mind:

  • Independent use:
    • Program an AI trained to be a digital therapist
  • Costs Reduction:
    • Bring the monthly cost down to $399 per month

2018

Why $399 per month? Matching the average price of out-patient rehabilitation.

The average out-of-pocket cost per hour of outpatient neuro rehab is $50 per session plus the cost of time and transportation.

With two outpatient visits per week, this is about $430 for 8.6 hours of rehab per month for the average stroke survivor

Average Motus users complete 30-50+ hours of rehab per month.

By bringing the cost of Motus robots down to $399/mo, we can reduce the cost of rehab from $100/hr to $10/hr.

2019

Voted Most Innovative Tech Company of 2019 by the Technology Association of Georgia

The Technology Association of Georgia, one of the country’s largest technology associations with 30,000+ members, recognized Motus Nova for its innovative applications of gaming to healthcare, financial impact, and likelihood to succeed.

2020

Launched Motus Hand and Motus Foot for the Home

By 2020 we began shipping out the first at home models for the Motus Hand & Motus Foot, increasing access to rehab and providing up to 10 times more rehab for the same price as your current outpatient therapy.
