[Source: BUSINESS WIRE] – Kinetic Muscles Inc., a leading innovator of neurorehabilitation technology, announced it has received a 2-year Phase II SBIR grant to study a new treatment for veterans returning from active duty with traumatic brain injury (TBI).

“We are pleased to work with KMI and Emory University on this important project. This collaboration is representative of the merging of technologies that will shape healthcare in the future.” Promising results from a Phase I study which combined neuropsychological therapy and digital gaming technology led the DoD to fund this Phase II study that will validate effectiveness of the therapy system through clinical testing in VA hospitals.

KMI will collaborate with Emory University, Division of Neuropsychology (Atlanta, GA), the DoD, the VA, and the University of Advancing Technology (Tempe, AZ) which is recognized as one of the foremost ‘gaming’ schools in the nation.
