FitMi Makes Home Therapy Motivating
A home therapy tool designed to help you retrain your brain.
FitMi was designed specifically to help people with a neurologic injury improve their strength and dexterity.
FitMi contains two wireless pucks and a therapy app that picks exercises for you tailored to your stage of recovery. As you improve, the FitMi exercises and difficulty levels increase to optimize your recovery.

Recover Faster by Getting the Repetition You Need
We all know that repetition is the key to a successful recovery. Why?
Because high repetition engages the brain and stimulates neuroplasticity, the mechanism that rewires your brain after stroke.
Each time you repeat an exercise with FitMi, the new circuits in your brain become a little bit stronger.
The more you repeat, the more your mobility will improve.
Unfortunately, studies show that the amount of repetition completed during normal therapy is very low (in the 30’s-40’s). This prevents you from maximizing your potential healing.
That’s why FitMi crushes typical home rehabilitation.
FitMi makes it fun and easy to complete a high number of repetitions – we’re talking up to hundreds per session.
In our initial pilot studies, we found that even individuals with severely limited movement were able to complete over 400 exercise repetitions in a 30-minute session.
That’s 12x more repetition than traditional therapy, which means that FitMi helps your brain heal faster.
More Reps = More Success
FitMi helps you achieve at least 12x more reps than traditional rehab

Story of the Month: ABC7 News Features FitMi!
Mary Carter – Stroke Survivor
“This is actually what helped me get up the stairs a lot easier and walk straight… I had trouble with balance but I’m walking a lot better.”
Brad Thomas – Stroke Survivor
“I’ve been using [FitMi] for over a month… It has greatly increased the strength in my arm and also in my hand.”
Therapists Agree, FitMi is the Best Home Exercise Tool
Finally, an effective way to recover at home!
FitMi is the first ever home therapy tool that:
- Prescribes the best exercises for your personal stage of recovery,
- Measures every repetition you complete, and
- Monitors your progress to push you towards your goals.
FitMi was voted Best of Show when we presented it at the American Occupational Therapy Association conference of 2017, where over 14,000 therapists attended and voted!
Therapists approve of FitMi’s fun and innovative design, and patients approve of their results!
Here’s Exactly How FitMi Works
USE FITMI IN 3 EASY STEPS
Step 1: Select Your Body Part
Decide what muscle group you’d like to exercise: hand, arm, core, or legs.
Step 2: Start Exercising
Using the blue and yellow pucks, follow along with the game and complete the exercises as best you can.
Step 3: Continue to Next Exercise
As you improve each day, FitMi will automatically adapt to your success, making sure you’re always moving forward.
Supporting Clinical Evidence
Increasing the number of exercise repetitions that stroke survivors practice during rehabilitation leads to an improved recovery.
In pilot studies with FitMi, users performed 12 times more exercise repetitions than the average for conventional therapy.
See these clinical studies:
- Is more better? Using metadata to explore dose-response relationships in stroke rehabilitation.
- The effects of increased dose of exercise-based therapies to enhance motor recovery after stroke: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
- Observation of amounts of movement practice provided during stroke rehabilitation.
Providing stroke survivors with both immediate and long-term feedback on their performance can significantly improve their recovery.
FitMi provides immediate visual, auditory, and haptic feedback as patients exercise, as well as daily summaries and long-term performance trends.
See these clinical studies:
- International randomized clinical trial, stroke inpatient rehabilitation with reinforcement of walking speed (SIRROWS), improves outcomes.
- Augmented visual, auditory, haptic, and multimodal feedback in motor learning: a review.
- Biofeedback improves activities of the lower limb after stroke: a systematic review.
Recovery after stroke is enhanced when patients are challenged at an appropriate level (i.e. the “Challenge Point Framework”).
FitMi incorporates an adaptive challenge algorithm that automatically adjusts the duration and intensity of exercise users perform based on their ability.
See these clinical studies:
- Challenge Point: A Framework for Conceptualizing the Effects of Various Practice Conditions in Motor Learning
- Use of the challenge point framework to guide motor learning of stepping reactions for improved balance control in people with stroke: a case series.
- Feasibility of the adaptive and automatic presentation of tasks (ADAPT) system for rehabilitation of upper extremity function post-stroke.
Compliance to conventional home-based rehabilitation programs is notoriously low.
FitMi uses innovative movement sensors and interactive gaming elements that are clinically proven to sustain motivation to exercise over a long period of time.
See these clinical studies:
- Adherence to a home-based exercise program for individuals after stroke.
- Home-based hand rehabilitation after chronic stroke: Randomized, controlled single-blind trial comparing the MusicGlove with a conventional exercise program.
- Telehealth, Wearable Sensors, and the Internet: Will They Improve Stroke Outcomes Through Increased Intensity of Therapy, Motivation, and Adherence to Rehabilitation Programs?
What Kind of Exercises Will I Be Doing?
FitMi includes 40 full-body exercises and 10 difficulty levels.
Here are some example exercises:
Why High-Tech Rehab Is More Effective
FitMi takes rehab up a notch by providing three different types of feedback at once:
- Haptic feedback: The pucks vibrate each time you successfully make a movement
- Visual feedback: The game keeps you focused by providing visual cues
- Auditory feedback: A gratifying ping plays each time you successfully perform a movement
Feedback is brain food, and FitMi gives your brain exactly what it needs to recover.
Adaptive Challenge Algorithm
Another crucial ingredient for recovery is challenge.
Your brain needs challenge in order to continuously improve. Otherwise, you’ll get used to the same stimulus and your results might plateau.
Plateaus are preventable by keeping yourself constantly challenged with a variety of exercises.
To help prevent plateaus, FitMi comes with a built-in challenge algorithm that unlocks more difficult exercises when you’re ready for them.
This keeps your brain constantly challenged so that you’re always improving.
Exercise Anytime for About the Cost of 3 Outpatient Therapy Visits!
Did you know a single outpatient visit with a therapist costs about $100?
To make matters worse, insurance companies will only pay for a limited number of outpatient visits!
But recovery doesn’t end when your insurance does. For about the price of three additional outpatient visits, you can have an award-winning home therapy tool available any time you want.
Want to exercise before bed? FitMi is there. Want to get a few reps in after breakfast? FitMi has you covered.
With FitMi, you can put your recovery back on your schedule, not your insurance company’s.
