Enhancing Rehabilitation and Recovery through 3D Exergames: A Case Study on MIRA’s Therapeutic Approach

MIRA is a software platform that ingeniously transforms physical and cognitive exercises into clinical exergames, making therapy more engaging and easier to follow. Serving as a tool for therapists, MIRA employs motion tracking sensors to involve patients in their therapy , simultaneously assessing and reporting patient compliance Successfully utilized in orthopedic and neurological therapy across all ages, as well as in falls prevention and active aging programs for the elderly, MIRA is redefining therapeutic approaches.


Physical, social, and mental activity is vital for health preservation, especially in aging individuals. Seniors maintaining an active lifestyle, avoiding isolation and inactivity, enjoy better physical and mental health and a higher quality of life than less active counter parts. However, falls pose a significant health concern, being a leading cause of accidental death in older individuals worldwide. Over 30% of people aged 65 and over, and 50% of people aged 80 and over, fall at least once a year. Therefore, providing a safe, yet engaging, physical exercise environment for seniors or patients requiring rehabilitation is a pressing concern.

Solution Delivered

Utilizing Orbbec 3D Depth camera with Body Tracking with Mira’s software that makes recovery and recuperation easier for patients, helping those who are coming through surgery or injury to regain their mobility as well as cognitive functions. With the introduction of gamification and virtual reality, patients have fun and interact in ways that make recovery, in the comfort of their home, possible. Remotely monitored by physical therapists makes this just as effective as in-patient care. This technology also tracks the process of their recovery, providing valuable information that can be used to adjust and personalize therapy programs for a speedier recovery.

  • It makes physical therapy more engaging for patients recovering at home or at the clinic
  • It makes physical therapy more manageable for clinicians, allowing them to better keep track of their patients
  • It allows customers to expand their market reach, reduce costs and offer innovative and high-quality care
  • Orbbec Body Tracking enables Mira to use the 3D data from Orbbec cameras to see and understand human bodies.
  • Orbbec Body Tracking follows 19 joints of the body for Therapist to isolate and target the specific area for rehabilitation.

Incorporating 3D camera games into physical therapy offers numerous benefits to enhance the patient rehabilitation process. With real-time feedback, personalized treatment plans, and an interactive rehabilitation experience, these games make physical therapy more enjoyable, engag ing, and effective. Consequently, patients are more likely to stay motivated and committed to their treatment plan, leading to better outcomes and faster recovery times.

This case study underscores the transformative potential of integrating technology into physical therapy, setting a promising precedent for future therapeutic approaches.
