TRC releasing Telehealth powered device for stroke rehabilitation

Handymotion controller for remote health

TRC net based out of Palo Alto is getting ready to release its new model of Handymotion devices. The devices were approved today by FCC. 

Based on the filing, the new Handymotion controllers are going to be used for Telehealth use cases. It’s being marketed as a “Telehealth solution for neurorehabilitation”.


According to CDC, every year, more than 795,000 people in the United States have a stroke. About 610,000 of these are first or new strokes. About 185,000 strokes—nearly 1 of 4—are in people who have had a previous stroke. About 87% of all strokes are ischemic strokes, in which blood flow to the brain is blocked.

Stroke is a leading cause of long-term disability and over 80% of stroke survivors need rehabilitation therapy. Many of these stroke sufferers require a long time for recovery and more importantly the rehab process is complex and requires daily neurological exercises.

TRC Telehealth platform is designed to guide patients through this complex recovery process. People will be able to use the device and participate in guided exercises from the comfort of their homes.

The company’s current  NeuroMotion platform is a complete upper extremity rehabilitation console designed for stroke patients to conduct home therapy exercises to enhance motor skills and restore functional abilities. 

The system offers personalized rehab training sessions in the form of guided rehabilitation games, clinically designed exercises, and stroke education.

Here are the salient features of the new HandyMotion controller: 

  • Personalized rehab training

sessions in the form of guided rehabilitation games, clinically designed exercises, and patient education.

  • Bluetooth wireless controllers

embedded with force gauges and motion sensors offering various types of movements for upper extremity rehabilitation to improve gross motor and fine motor skills.

  • Tele-rehabilitation services

enable patients to receive home-based therapy exercises managed by medical professionals.

  • Clinic or Home use

HandyMotion system can be deployed in rehab hospital, clinic or at patient’s home.

This is an excellent use case of technology powering a Telehealth use case in bringing clinicians and patients together to solve the problem of neurological rehab in these times when visiting physician offices and outpatient facilities has become a risky proposition.
