Gesturetek Health - COPA Practise Growth Innovation of the Year

COPA Practise Growth Innovation of the Year


IREX wins Innovation of the Year Award 2016 from The COPA Practise Growth


Three-industry leading events, all running over two days and under one roof, make Physical Rehab World the most spectacular exhibition in Europe for medical rehabilitation professionals. The three events, COPA Practice Growth, Neurological Rehabilitation Expo and Elite Sports Rehabilitation Expo, ran alongside each other at ExCel London, June 13th-15th. 

Demonstrating leadership and innovation in the neurological health sector, GestureTek Health was chosen as an exhibitor for the event, which brings together the top influential and professional leaders in the industry. Visitors were invited to immerse themselves in full body video gesture controlled rehabilitation experiences, engaging with the IREX (Immersive Rehabilitation Exercise System) and the Cube V5.

The IREX brings both fun and function to the rehabilitation experience, tracking patient’s progress behind the scenes of engaging, hands-free gesture-controlled virtual reality games, proven to improve patient motivation and repetition for rehabilitation exercises. The Cube is a compact, portable, turnkey unit that projects an interactive gesture-controlled display onto any floor or wall for sensory engagement and unique immersive experiential environments. Both products offer a fun, engaging, hygienic, and accessible experience for patients of all ages and abilities. 

GestureTek Health was honoured to be nominated for and to win the COPA Practise Growth: Innovation of the Year Award. This award recognises the most innovative concept that has broken new ground in the sector, standing out from the competition through such factors as design, operation and effectiveness. GestureTek Health was up against four other nominees that all specialized in medical rehabilitation products. The judging included a speech in front of a jury panel along with a demonstration of the product.
