Using the MC360™ training system has demonstrated improved performance across multiple training tasks and patient profiles.  Improvements in faster motor function and more efficient movements are typical benefits from using the MC360™ technology as part of a patient therapy program.  In addition to improved motor training, the MC360™ system technology includes patient somatorsensory training, required for smooth, coordinated movements. The somatosensory system is a diverse sensory system composed of the receptors and processing centers to produce the sensory modalities such as touch, temperature, proprioception (body position), and nociception (pain). Participants with the MC360™ system also show improved performance in tactile discrimination.

MC360™ has demonstrated that tele-rehabilitlation is a viable option for promoting long-term recovery in CP and post-stroke patients by extending the treatment therapy exercise process. Studies suggest what many already feel they know, that home-based training utilizing interactive software/hardware with periodic coaching via video conferencing introduces experiences to participants that exceed sensorimotor training alone and may influence cognitive performance.

By example, current care practices for chronic stages of stroke recovery are often limited with formal rehabilitation efforts typically discontinued within a year post stroke.  Typically, patients are released from acute therapy with a written home exercise program to continue effort to regain function independently.  On average, stroke patients discontinue their independent exercise programs.  The ability to collect performance data in secured valid environment for the duration of the training offers an abundance of opportunities to better understand motor control and motor therapy progress following stroke events as well as helps clinicians produce better functional outcomes following stroke.
