In this context, Humans Matter, a leader in cognitive evaluation and rehabilitation in France, and the Paris Brain Institute are announcing their collaboration. This collaboration includes several projects, which should lead to new digital therapy solutions being made available to people with brain injuries, as well as to the healthcare professionals who support them. These are defined as treatments that take a digital form (such as mobile applications or connected devices), acting either as a replacement or as a complement to a drug treatment. Like all treatments, their effectiveness is based on scientific evidence and validated by regulatory authorities.
Based on the latest theoretical models, co-constructed and tested with patients, the solutions developed within the framework of this partnership deliver an experience that is specific to the brain injury and enable patients to be active players in their own health, in conjunction with their speech therapists and neuropsychologists. Four projects are already being tested. They cover the different phases of the therapeutic process: evaluation, rehabilitation, and daily life.
This project aims at transferring to the home the progress acquired during rehabilitation in Continuing Care and Rehabilitation, by continuing the dynamics of therapeutic cooking workshops via a device helping to prepare meals independently. The recipes are developed in collaboration with the research center of the Institut Paul Bocuse.
Au Fil des Mots
This project allows speech therapists to guide their patients in an error-free self-reeducation in order to reinforce reeducation between two consultations for patients with aphasia.
A battery for the evaluation of cognitive functions allowing a quick screening (~ 20 minutes) of patients during a fully autonomous test.
An aid for the rehabilitation of people suffering from auditory processing disorder (APD), such as cortical deafness and verbal deafness. It can also be an aid for re-learning to listen after cochlear implantation or for training certain auditory attention capacities.
The emergence of these first projects is based on promising discoveries made in the field of cognitive neuroscience and physical medicine and rehabilitation by the research teams and the CareLab of the Paris Brain Institute, and the care teams of the Pitié-Salpêtrière AP-HP hospital. These results galvanized the collaboration with Humans Matter, which is in charge of developing digital therapy solutions. Humans Matter’s approach is based on cognitive design – at the crossroads of cognitive science, design, data, and co-construction with users – to transform proofs of concept into sustainable digital therapies that can be deployed for the masses.
