CONNEXTYLE

Multi-sensory stimulation system

The project

The Connextyle sensor shirt is used with the Constructing Connectivity stroke rehabilitation method. Patients perform exercises and create audio and visual patterns through body movement. This multi-sensory stimulation system is more effective at creating new neural pathways, helping patients to relearn how to use the body.
