[Korea Contactless Technology] Development of a rehabilitation program adapted to patients with infantile cerebral palsy in virtual reality

LOS ANGELES, CA, December 10, 2021 / 24-7PressRelease / – Contactless and social distancing are terms that have become very familiar in the wake of COVID-19. The latest technologies in areas close to our lives are also emerging in line with this trend. Artificial intelligence, big data, VR (virtual reality) and AR (augmented reality) provide us with new realistic content and allow us to lead a more advanced daily life through the development of personalized programs or platform services. The Korean government is focused on expanding contactless services for our daily lives. Through this, it plans to prevent the spread of infectious diseases such as COVID-19 and secure a leading position in the global contactless services market, in line with the era of digital transformation.

In the era of With Corona and Post-Corona, contactless technologies and services are expected to develop rapidly. As a result, the National Computer Industry Promotion Agency (NIPA) of the Ministry of Science and ICT (MSIT) discovers and supports key contactless services in areas of life in front that people may feel to protect their daily lives and boost the economic vitality of infectious diseases such as COVID-19. Among them, the “Personalized Rehabilitation Program for Pediatric Cerebral Palsy VR Patients” developed by PNPMedia Co., Ltd. is a personalized rehabilitation program that applies task-based training to double the treatment effect of pediatric cerebral palsy patients.

Domestic and foreign cases of cerebral palsy are 2-3 per 1,000 births, and the rate is not that high, but the disability often persists throughout life, and the effect of treatment is not high . In particular, in the case of pediatric patients with cerebral palsy, it is very important to detect the symptoms that cause disorders in children with cerebral palsy early and to provide appropriate treatment to ensure that the motor nerves and the growth development of children with cerebral palsy are close to normal. To solve this problem, PNPMedia introduced an advanced virtual reality system and developed a personalized rehabilitation program for pediatric patients with cerebral palsy applying task-based training and presenting a new treatment paradigm.

VR Pediatric Cerebral Palsy Patient Personalized Rehabilitation Program consists of “Rehabilitation program personalized for the patient’s condition”, “All-in-one system for medical institutions, general personal (portable) system” and a “contactless processing system.” Among them, the ‘Patient Status Personalized Rehabilitation Program’ is a personalized program that trains upper limbs, lower limbs, cognition and complex functions according to the patient’s condition. This program was directly organized by rehabilitation medicine professionals based on patient data.

In addition, the integrated system for medical institutions and the general personal (portable) system are divided into an integrated system that can be used in hospitals and rehabilitation centers, and a general system that can be operated without expert help. at home and via a control system that can monitor learning, it can be used as part of rehabilitation treatment for cerebral palsy patients in hospitals and businesses. Finally, the new concept of “Contactless Processing System”, which emerges as a hot topic, allows users to exercise their cognition, upper body, lower body and a combination using headsets and handsets. cerebral palsy rehabilitation VR controllers, regardless of location.

PNPMedia Co., Ltd. said: “This program will first be tailor-made to small and medium-sized hospitals where it is difficult to introduce general facilities due to space issues in rehabilitative medicine. In addition, it can be used for rehabilitation treatment in domestic and foreign hospitals, health centers, social assistance centers for people with disabilities and special schools, and can also be used as a practical manual for departments. physiotherapy and occupational therapy departments nationwide, they added.

Digital health is one of the industries expected to grow through the combination of new technologies, and rehabilitation programs incorporating virtual reality systems are expected to have a significant impact on trends in the healthcare industry. The size of the domestic and foreign virtual reality market is expected to grow by 42.9% annually, compared to 59.271 trillion won in 2020 and 11.694 trillion won in 2022. In particular, the size of the global healthcare market health care using virtual reality and augmented reality technologies is expected to grow 36.6% per year from $ 762.9 million in 2017 to $ 4.997.9 billion by 2023, intensifying technological competition to concern this market .

Meanwhile, PNPMedia, who carried out this project, is a specialist company that develops medical VR / AR, industrial safety content and produces production plans, continuously invests in R&D to advance content technology and creates constantly innovating content in combination with various industries.
