We’re proud to be listed among the ‘Success Stories’ of the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program, a program set up by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to provide funding “for domestic small business concerns to engage in Research/Research and Development (R/R&D) that has the potential for commercialization and public benefit.”

Calling our FDA-cleared Virtual Exercise Rehabilitation Assistant (VERA®) virtual PT platform one of the “few evidence-based exercise programs proven effective at improving strength and reducing falls,” the CDC describes initial results showing “that VERA improves compliance and saves time, steps and costs in post-acute care rehabilitation.”

“Older adult users showed improvements over time in how well they could perform prescribed exercises — translating into a significant reduction of older adult fall risk,” the CDC report continued. “The exercises were accessible by both men and women, and by individuals from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds and individuals with a range of cognitive abilities.”
