We offer an eight-week programme of upper limb rehabilitation using a suite of robotics and VR technology in our RehabHub.  

The rehabilitation technology at STEPS includes functional electrical stimulation (FES), robotics, virtual reality (VR), and full-body motion capture. It is used to provide intensive, high repetition and motivational treatment to enhance therapy in those with upper limb impairment following neurological and complex trauma. The technologies aim to replicate movements often practiced as part of therapy sessions and use games to provide focus for the movement(s) you are working on. The technology can be programmed for your individual needs and goals. 

Technology Available 


  • MindMotion® Go
  • Intento®
  • Izar®
