 Asuuta Ltd

Asuuta has developed an award-winning treadmill based system that combines motion capture technology with virtual reality to aid in the rehabilitation of stroke patients. Patients receive visual and auditory feedback from their movements in real-time and can practice real world tasks without the risk of hurting themselves. The clinician gains key diagnostic metrics and can track a patient’s recovery over a number of sessions as well as having access to an advanced task editor enabling them to ensure every session is tailored to the patient’s needs. By using proprietary software running on mostly off-the-shelf hardware components underpinned by advanced medical expertise, StroMoHab is able to apply cutting-edge clinical rehabilitation for stroke and other gait-impaired patients at a highly competitive price.  Earthbound Scientific provides novel, cost-effective eco system monitoring platforms for terrestrial Greenhouse Gas exchange.
