Motus Nova Founded
On a mission to deliver neuro-rehab in every home through robotic exoskeletons guided by AI.
When conventional rehabilitation is too slow, Motus is the answer for stroke recovery: a home based program revolutionizing stroke rehabilitation whether you are ten days or ten years after brain injury.

Hemiparesis from stroke is not your life. This is technology to get you back to the real you. Prove them wrong–those that say you can’t get any better. Motus users say they’ve made more gains in weeks or months than they have in years of traditional rehab.

Brain injuries can be debilitating. But no matter how long it’s been since your injury or your age, every brain can learn and rewire. Every brain can heal. Unfortunately, there are no shortcuts to relearning your movements other than to put in the hours. The injured brain needs practice, practice, and more practice to make those new connections.
Clinical studies (Lang, et al. 2015, Lohse, et al. 2014) showcase that higher doses of therapy can result in faster functional gains.
Stroke and brain injury survivors are getting a fraction of the hours of rehabilitation from the healthcare system.
Most stroke survivors believe the fastest gains are made during in-patient rehab because of the proximity to their injury date. But that is not the primary reason! You most likely received substantially more hours of therapy (usually 3-5 per day) during in-patient rehab than you do now. This high dosage of hours was the accelerant to your recovery.
Most stroke survivors report receiving 2 hours of out-patient therapy a week, which is significantly less than the recommended amount.
Motus users have seen gains after 15 years post stroke by putting in more hours of rehab per week.

The Motus Hand & Foot robots provide rehab that has been
scientifically proven to be of equivalent quality to a skilled
More importantly there is no cap on the number of hours of therapy. You set the limit for how much therapy you receive. Boost your rehab hours by 10x!
The pneumatic pump in our robots is designed to be used even by those who have no movement.
Motus exoskeletons are uniquely designed to be a good fit for hands or feet with these impairments.
Motus rehab routines are designed with games to keep you constantly engaged.
The Motus Hand & Motus Foot are shipped directly to your home and designed to be used independently without need of any assistance.
You don’t need a screen! The Motus Hand & Foot are both shipped with a monitor that will guide you through your therapy.
The Motus Digital Therapist is built with AI designed to learn your impairments and gauge your progress from data being provided by built-in movement sensors. If you need additional assistance you can sign up for a telehealth session with one of our specialists.
Your reports will give you real time updates on improvement in range of motion and strength. But more importantly you should feel the improvement in your own movement as well.
The Motus Hand & Foot come with a 10 Day Risk-Free trial period. Call us to learn about trial options.
The more hours you put in the cheaper the hourly rate. Most users on average pay $10/hour of use. We encourage you to contact a specialist to discuss pricing options.
On a mission to deliver neuro-rehab in every home through robotic exoskeletons guided by AI.
Designed to speed up stroke recovery by increasing the number of repetitions in a rehab session, clinical studies proved Motus robots can deliver clinical level of care.Clinical Studies
Motus introduced the first iteration of robots called The Motus Hand & Foot Mentor Pro. They were built specifically for hospitals and cost over $20,000.
The hospital setting limited user access to 2 hours per week. For survivors to benefit from the robots, they needed to use them on a daily basis. The only way to make this possible was to bring Motus robots into the home.
We spent 2 years engineering the device with two goals in mind:
The average out-of-pocket cost per hour of outpatient neuro rehab is $50 per session plus the cost of time and transportation.
With two outpatient visits per week, this is about $430 for 8.6 hours of rehab per month for the average stroke survivor
Average Motus users complete 30-50+ hours of rehab per month.
By bringing the cost of Motus robots down to $399/mo, we can reduce the cost of rehab from $100/hr to $10/hr.
The Technology Association of Georgia, one of the country’s largest technology associations with 30,000+ members, recognized Motus Nova for its innovative applications of gaming to healthcare, financial impact, and likelihood to succeed.See Full Story
By 2020 we began shipping out the first at home models for the Motus Hand & Motus Foot, increasing access to rehab and providing up to 10 times more rehab for the same price as your current outpatient therapy.
“I can honestly say that the hand mentor has helped significantly in managing and reducing the tone in my wrist and hand. And not to mention increased range of motion and wrist function since starting with the device!”
Stroke Survivor Chatham, NJ
“On June 29th I had a stroke. I had very limited movement in my right arm and almost none in hand. About a month ago I went on the internet looking for ideas and came across this web site and with the 25 hour challenge I said what do I have to lose. Within just a few days…”
Stroke Survivor Palm Springs, FL
“…His stroke left his right arm with having hardly any movement. Even manually moving it to bath caused pain. After the first days therapy there was less pain sometimes none. Therapist is very happy with his improvement…
Caregiver Norfolk, NE
“My son was 2.5 years post stroke when he started using the hand mentor. Don’t give up. The science of neuro plasticity is real. Your brain can change and get better at any age, anytime.”
Caregiver Mableton, GA
“My shoulder had movements but it took me more effort to lift my arm above my shoulder and i had some pain too, now it is easier to raise my arm and minimum pain, the hand mentor definitely helped.”
Stroke Survivor El Paso, TX
“Before, when I tried moving my hand down at the wrist, it froze solid. Could not do it but I’m starting to see improvements on that!!”
Stroke Survivor Dardanelle, AR
“Terrell Harris completed the #25hourchallenge (two weeks after we received the unit). The hand mentor has helped reduce spasticity in his arm and has helped him extend his wrist (passive).”
Caregiver Kansas City, MO
“I am grateful for the positive energy this community brings to the process of getting my groove back. It has been a big challenge for me to sit and pay attention for an entire session. I am psyched to be working with technology on rewiring my movement.”
Stroke Survivor Seattle, WA
“My sister Sharon M….she’s able to move her hand with ease. Her left side has seen improvement in range of movements and reduced spasticity. #30daychallenge getting stronger everyday”
Caregiver Seattle, WA
“…My dad had no movement on his right side. He is now moving his right thumb and first fingers pretty good along with now trying to move his pinky finger a little… he really looks forward to his hand mentor sessions!”
Caregiver Savannah, GA
“My husband, Ed, received his Motus Nova hand mentor late yesterday afternoon. We were so excited! We set it up and he started the 30 day challenge!! He did a session last night and one this morning.”
Caregiver Raleigh, NC
“Finished the 11th day… I even put the device on my hand without needing Pete’s help to straighten my fingers. Marie observed the muscles in my forearm looked less atrophied and I could show her that it was easier to straighten my fingers.”
Stroke Survivor Mountain Home, AR
“Leaning to make sure his wrist is going down far enough to pick up the card. The up and down motions are really making him stronger, especially since the settings were changed to get more range❤”
