According to the WSA-Germany Jury statement "CUREosity is the best example that digital content can cure. By visual stimulation, this therapy system evokes the reconfiguration of nerves. This capability of the nervous system has been observed and used in treatment of stroke and paraplegics patients since many years. The uniqueness of CUREosity is, that with the use of virtual reality and gamification of digital content the effect is multiplied and time of recovery is speeded up.
“The WSA Winners combine two major focus points - the commitment on the UN SDGs and solving societies issues with smart content application. Evaluated by an international expert Jury in 2 stages – a multi-stakeholder college unique in terms of diversity and background – the 40 WSA Winners have been tried for sustainability, aim, technical and strategic finesse. This year’s challenges show more than ever how much digital means can offer progress and solutions. This year’s WSA Winners present a wonderful showcase of purpose driven innovation and entrepreneurship.“ WSA Chairman Peter A. Bruck states.
Through immersive worlds and virtual reality, the patient's motivation and joy for high-frequency training is sustainably increased which brings the extra effect. Based on clinical trials and the proven effectiveness, this new technology and a newly developed therapy, is now being used in rehabilitations centres in Germany.
The founder team is a driven by live experience/tragedy since the founders are parents of children with nerve diseases. The solution is under continues development. Within next 4 years, the team wants to enable most patients to live without external help or at least improve control of their body an regain independence."
