NeoRehab

Taking allied health to anywhere in Australia and beyond

 

Challenge

University-based clinical researchers developed a device and associated software to provide a telehealth platform for physiotherapy, speech therapy, audiology and occupational therapy.

The devices were being built by hand and sold to not-for-profit organisations such as Blue Care and Hear and Say.

Funding was required, along with the development of the next generation of devices for the Australian and international market.

Solution

 

  • IIG helped NeoRehab apply for a Commercialisation Australia grant.
  • Working closely with the technical team, IIG engaged design companies and software programmers to develop the next generation of the product.
  • IIG’s extensive engagement with early adopters of the technology informed the direction of the designs and overall functionality of the system.
Outcomes

 

  • The management team’s deliberate staged approach changed the strategy from a hardware focus (building custom hardware systems that were calibrated to the software) to a software-only focus.
  • Secured grant funding of $245,000 to progress the software development activities.
  • A US university is now using the technology in a clinical trial.
  • A ‘hearing-related’ multinational is assessing the platform for delivery of support services.
