Ongoing Research
A day without Neuroforma is a day wasted for me. Exercises are attractive, and I feel my arms getting stronger as I exercise. I noticed big changes after only one month of training.
I find that Neuroforma exercises match my abilities. I perform them with pleasure. The most important factor for me is that I can exercise at home.
Neuroforma is a wonderful supplement for rehabilitation. It’s easy to use, with no obstacles for users. Practically all you need to do is to turn on the computer and start the program.
Finally there is a program facilitating home rehabilitation. Neuroforma is a great innovative rehabilitation program, both for disabled people recovering from traumas, who need to get fitter, and for people bored with traditional exercises.
Neuroforma is developed on the basis of its own research and cutting-edge scientific knowledge.
Neuroforma is developed on the basis of consultations, testing and research conducted. We strive to make the program best adapted to the specific needs of users, and in order to ensure it we take into account the results of research and trial tests of patients from various clinical groups, who are the target of the program. It is on this basis that we introduce new features and enhancements to the program.
Cooperation with scientists allows us to develop various elements of the program that improve patient satisfaction in working with Neuroforma, based on the latest scientific knowledge.

"Clinical TeleNeuroforma" project – testing the effectiveness in people with HD, SCA and SM
We implement the "Clinical TeleNeuroforma - clinically validated system of home rehabilitation for patients with selected neurological diseases" project funded by the National Centre for Research and Development under the "Social Innovation" program.
Currently, the project involves developing new exercising modules with particular emphasis on the needs of people suffering from Huntington's disease, spinocerebellar ataxia and multiple sclerosis.
Then the entire tool is going to undergo clinical trials, aimed at providing evidence for the effectiveness of Neuroforma as regards rehabilitation of patients from these clinical groups. Our test results will appear as a scientific publication, while previous reports confirming the effectiveness of the methods and technologies used in Neuroforma may be found here.
The project is implemented by a consortium composed of Titanis Sp. z o. o., Institute of Psychiatry and Neurology, Medical Research Centre of the Polish Academy of Sciences, Polish Multiple Sclerosis Society, Polish Huntington's Disease Association and Polish Association of Families with Spinocerebellar Ataxia.

Testing the effectiveness of exercises in post-stroke patients
The effectiveness of the rehabilitation exercising system designed in Neuroforma as a treatment for post-stroke patients has been studied since 2013 in collaboration with Poznań University of Medical Sciences, as part of the doctoral thesis of Alicja Banaś, MA. The results will appear as a scientific publication and the application of Neuroforma has been described in specialist literature (Banaś i in., 2013).
Collaboration between Prof. Józef Opara and Jerzy Ziętek Górnośląskie Rehabilitation Centre "Repty" in 2015 involved conducting tests on the application of Neuroforma as a tool for mirror therapy targeted at post-stroke patients. The research plan was presented at a conference, and the results are intended to be published.

Program research and testing with the participation of multiple sclerosis patients
Research aimed at verifying various methods of supporting patients in their systematic work at home was conducted in 2014 in people with multiple sclerosis as part of the bachelor thesis written at the Cognitive Science faculty at the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń (Cheładze, 2014).
Already since the times of the first prototype versions, Neuroforma has been used by the National Residential and Rehabilitation Centre for Multiple Sclerosis Patients in Dąbek. It is one of Poland's largest centres offering rehabilitation of patients suffering from multiple sclerosis. Our cooperation with the Centre is a source of valuable comments on the practical aspects of the application of Neuroforma.
John Paul II Rehabilitation Centre for Multiple Sclerosis Patients in Borne Sulinowo is a leading centre in Poland for those suffering from multiple sclerosis, which also offers rehabilitation of patients with other neurological disorders. Apart from using Neuroforma, it also develops the concept of tele-rehabilitation in line with the idea of ongoing cooperation of the centre with patients staying at home. In the process of developing the program, we take into account feedback from patients and specialists using Neuroforma in the Rehabilitation Centre.
Patients with multiple sclerosis are also participating in tests of the effectiveness of Neuroforma under the "Clinical TeleNeuroforma" project.

A Program of research and testing with the participation of Huntington’s disease patients.
Since 2013, together with the Polish Huntington's Disease Association, we have been investigating the impact of home rehabilitation using Neuroforma on motivation to daily exercise, quality of life as well as cognitive and motor functioning of those suffering from Huntington's disease.
Huntington's disease patients also participate in testing of effectiveness of Neuroforma exercises, conducted under the "Clinical TeleNeuroforma" project.

Program research and testing with the participation of spinocerebellar ataxia patients
As part of the rehabilitation camps of the Polish Association of Families with Spinocerebellar Ataxia ATAKSJA, Leszek Czerwosz from the Medical Research Centre of the Polish Academy of Sciences has been conducting Neuroforma trial testing since 2013 with the participation of those suffering from spinocerebellar ataxia.
Patients with spinocerebellar ataxia also take part in effectiveness tests of Neuroforma conducted under the "Clinical TeleNeuroforma" project.

Cooperation with researchers from the Faculty of Psychology of the University of Warsaw
We worked with researchers from the Faculty of Psychology at the University of Warsaw who study the psychology of emotions and motivation on two projects under the "Internship as a stepping stone to researcher’s success" program completed in 2014.
The goal of the first one was to develop methods used to motivate the patient to work at home with the Neuroforma program based on the latest findings in the field of motivation psychology.
The other project involved the development of an optimal strategy for the selection of a rehabilitation program, in terms of its impact on user’s emotions and mood.
Since 2014 we have been cooperating with Clinical Neuropsychology specialization in conducting research aimed at developing and optimizing the content of Neuroforma.
New applications of Neuroforma
We are looking for new opportunities to use the program basing on the results of innovative research using Neuroforma conducted in collaboration with scientists from various fields.
