Game for stroke rehabilitation

The grueling therapy required to recover from a stroke has never been considered fun and games, but a Tempe company has decided maybe it should be.

Kinetic Muscle has paired video games and a robotic arm to help patients regain their physical abilities in a way that’s more engaging than traditional therapy.
The idea came when the young company developed a prototype that had patients move a light up and down on a screen as part of their therapy to regain movement, said chief operating officer Ed Koeneman.
