The Neurotherapeutics Group specialises in developing novel digital interventions (i.e. apps and web-based therapies) for hemianopic alexia, aphasia and other neurological conditions.
Eye-Search is a free online therapy for patients with visual search problems caused by brain injury. It is a clinically proven, behavioural therapy designed to improve patients' speed and accuracy when finding objects.
Read-Right is a therapeutic web-based app for people with hemianopic alexia (HA). HA is a condition caused by focal brain damage (e.g. stroke) which damages a person’s vision relating to one half of the visual world (usually to the right in HA). As a result, HA readers are deprived of the upcoming words when reading which results in HA readers making many extra eye-movements. The app displays scrolling text, which retrains the eye movements important for reading.
iReadMore is a new reading therapy app designed to improve word-reading speed and accuracy in people who have language problems (aphasia) after stroke. Our research demonstrates that iReadMore is effective.
Listen-In is a digital therapy app for people with aphasia. The therapy helps to improve understanding of spoken words, and has been proven to be effective in a recent clinical trial. The app will be available for download soon.
iTalkbetter is a digital therapy app for people with post-stroke aphasia and word retrieval impairments. The app is currently under development and a clinical trial investigating the efficacy of the app will soon be commencing.
Gotcha! is a digital therapy app for people with mild-moderate Alzheimer’s disease who have difficulties naming people they know well. The app is currently under development and a clinical trial investigating the efficacy of the app will soon be commencing.
