The illusion of movement

Vision helps relearning
Vision is particularly important when it comes to learning new movements: in order to learn a new sport, a new gesture, we observe movements performed by other people and then try to mimic them.

Vision and movement are therefore closely interconnected: seeing a movement or making it engage almost the same brain areas.

So, every time we observe the illusion of a movement, our brain instantly and effortlessly simulates this same movement which helps in the recovery of this movement.

This is why we say:
“Seeing a movement is almost making a movement.”

Our innovation
Relearning how to perform a movement by watching over and over
Patients subject to paralysis or pain disorders experience discrepancy between movement control and the visual and sensitive feedback they get: it is indeed very challenging to relearn a movement when faced with constantly negative feedback, which conveys a sense of failure.

The IVS3 system replaces the image of the paralyzed arm by a positive image based on a movement performed by the healthy arm. By reinstating coherence between what the patient intends to do and what they perceive, this flow of illusions helps relearning and motor recovery.
