Presenter Tobias Wittenzellner (Source: niederbayernTV, February 16, 2024)

The TV station niederbayernTV reported on the use of virtual reality therapy with CURE at the "Passauer Wolf" rehabilitation center in its TV Journal on February 16, 2024. According to Theresa Eichberger (Deputy Therapy Manager, Passauer Wolf), the facility in Bad Griesbach primarily treats neurological and geriatric patients. CURE is used at Passauer Wolf in particular to treat the consequences of a stroke.

The clinic sees various advantages for its facility when using CURE. For the patients, it is a completely new form of therapy that they can immerse themselves in. The various modules promote the patients' range of motion, concentration and intrinsic motivation, among other things. Theresa Eichberger sees another major advantage in the fact that the use of modern methods makes the working environment attractive and exciting for therapists.

The TV report shows very nicely how therapists use CURE. Marie-Claire Heyne (Deputy Head of Ergo, Passauer Wolf) demonstrates a therapy session with the "fruit picking" training together with patient Martin Hitzenbichler. One of the most common late effects of strokes is (one-sided) arm paresis. Patients therefore train the motor skills of their extremities and trunk stability while picking fruit by stretching and lifting their arm. At the same time, the hand grip is trained when the fruit is picked from the tree and placed in the bowls provided.
