Children’s game arrives on EMVIGR platform

Sir Bramble Haterston the King of Hats has arrived with magic and spells for our younger audience. Children (or adults) now have the chance to battle their way, in a friendly sort of way, through an island kingdom. Rehabilitative therapies are disguised as spell casting, the better you move and cast the spell the more exciting the outcome!

Launch Event Nears


EMVIGR is in the final stages of preparing their demonstrations and key technology showcases for the 15th January Online Physiotherapy event at the Centre for Life. As well as a series of talks guests will be able to see the technology in action and have an opportunity to join the Empowering Games Consortium.

The event has been moved to the larger Darwin Suite to accommodate a larger than expected interest in online physiotherapy, an interest that is growing daily.

Empowering Games Consoritium

EMVIGR is forming a consortium to bring professional games studios, health professionals and patients together to help deliver high quality gaming experiences in rehabilitative health using their innovative platform.

The world’s first online delivery system for physiotherapy using video games for patients with musculoskeletal and chronic neurological disorders has been pioneered in the North East of England. This new platform provides the capacity for remote monitoring and communication; physiotherapists will be able to manage many more patients, while at the same time delivering higher intensity therapy to meet service guidelines. Using the EMVIGR platform, service productivity will be increased and staff will be able to deliver “more for less”.

See the future!

EMVIGR and our partners are organising a workshop to show, first hand, what our technology can do to improve healthcare delivery in the digital age.

We are pleased to announce that Miles Ayling (the Director of Innovation for NHS England) will be the keynote speaker.

There will be full technology demonstrations, talks from Graham and Janet (founders of EMVIGR) as well as lunch and a panel session from leaders of the healthcare and video games industries.

Local expertise

The Academic Health Science Network (AHSN) of the North East and North Cumbria is supporting local start-up, EMVIGR, with seed funding, enabling EMVIGR to bring together North East health experts and video game developers to create rehabilitative remote physiotherapy, using video games.
