Compact Rehabilitation Robot (CR2). A Technology Project. Robotic system for effective rehabilitation training.

...

ABOUT THE PROJECT

The Compact Rehabilitation Robot (CR2) is a series of robotic system that are developed for effective rehabilitation training. CR2-Haptic is one of the CR2 robots, and it is designed to train forearm, wrist and basic activity of daily living (ADL) movement. It can be used for individuals who have suffered strokes, traumatic brain injuries or other neurological disorders resulting in hand and arm impairment. It is an affordable, portable and compact rehabilitation robot which can be used to train for their muscle function while playing the engaging and motivating virtual reality games. Besides, CR2-Haptic enables patients to train at home by integrating tele-monitoring technology that enables therapists to monitor patients' progress through internet. With this feature, therapists and family members can easily analyse and review the progress of the patients through Internet.



Why we do this?
One in six people in the world have a chance of getting stroke in their lifetime. In Malaysia, there are 52,000 people suffering stroke every year. We have visited many rehabilitation centres and hospitals around UK and Malaysia including NHNN London, NASAM PJ, NASAM Penang, NASAM Melaka, and general hospitals. We observed a common problem: There are too many patients but not enough physiotherapists. This affects the rehabilitation activities among the stroke patients.

Some of the patients lost their confidence due to the long rehabilitation period and even gave up due to many difficulties. Besides, conventional rehabilitation methods with physiotherapists are also labor intensive, subjective, costly and inconsistent.

Robotic technology is a new frontier to assist in stroke rehabilitation. Clinical studies also proved that rehabilitation robot can help to speed up the recovery process of the patient. There are several commercially available rehabilitation robots in the market such as In-Motion Arm and Reo-Go therapy. However, these robots are too costly and not suitable for home use. Thus, our mission is to develop a set of Compact Rehabilitation Robot which is affordable, portable and yet effective.


How much we need?
Our funding goal is RM5000. With this, we can provide 1 unit of the award-winning, custom-made VR Game using Kinect for stroke rehabilitation (1st Microsoft Imagine Cup 2014) to National Stroke Association of Malaysia (NASAM).

Our ultimate goal is to raise a fund of RM35000. With this fund, we will develop a new robot set, CR2-Haptic and give it to NASAM. By supporting them a full set of robotic rehabilitation system, we hope we can help to improve their current rehabilitation training and provide the patients a faster track towards recovery.

PLEDGE

We would encourage you to connect your Facebook with pitchIN before you pitch to the project. If not, your pitch will be identified as "anonymous" in the Project Page. However, if you choose to pitch anonymously, pitchIN would still have your information. We think it would be just awesome if we can see and identify our supporters in the wall of pitchers.





ANNOUNCEMENT

A pitcher/pledger does not need a PayPal account to pitch or pledge. What he/she needs is a credit card (Mastercard/Visa) or a debit card.

However, if you are not comfortable doing an online pitch/pledge - you can transfer the money directly to the pitchIN account as follows:

WATCHTOWER AND FRIENDS SDN.BHD
Maybank 564892100684

WATCHTOWER AND FRIENDS SDN BHD is the company that owns and runs pitchIN.

However, the person must send pitchIN the proof of transfer by attaching the receipt to the email address: pitch@pitchin.my with the Subject Heading: CR2. Upon receiving that, the folks at pitchIN can then quickly update the project page.


Thank you again and we do hope you will support the project!
