The pioneering facility in Sheffield has been rubbing shoulders with tech innovators in Singapore and Switzerland to become the first place in the UK to provide clients with access to world-class robotic and virtual reality technology.

It is working with Fourier Intelligence, a Singapore-based technology company that develops pioneering exoskeleton and rehabilitation robotics. By combining the expertise and experience of researchers, therapists, and patients, they excel in developing new robotic solutions to support the rehabilitation process and lives of patients.

The RehabHub is a suite of rehab technology which focus on both upper and lower limb robotic therapy, as well as cognitive feedback and training, providing a complete solution for neurorehabilitation. The suite of equipment includes the latest in cycle motion, arm, wrist, finger, and ankle rehabilitation robotics.

As well as being the first UK Fourier Intelligence Rehabilitation Hub, STEPS is also now one of only two UK facilities offering clients access to the revolutionary MindMaze virtual reality rehabilitation technology. Developed in Switzerland, this trailblazing VR technology helps clients who have sustained a traumatic brain injury.

STEPS is in discussions to collaborate with the Advanced Wellbeing Research Centre at Sheffield Hallam University to undertake new research that will investigate and explore the benefits of this new rehabilitation technology.
