Patents

NeckCare has received patents in three continents: Australia, Europe, USA and pending in Canada.

The patent itself is the primary product component that addresses the needs of the global healthcare and insurance markets.

The patented product classifies data that is acquired by a sensor system, measuring physical body movements and bodily impairments.

The Butterfly Method is a unique tool which clinicians can use to assess and treat their patients’ deficient movement control. The method has been found to be both reliable and valid for assessment and treatment. The Butterfly Method fits well into clinical settings and can increase clinicians’ efficiency since patients can operate the rehabilitation part of the Butterfly Method themselves, freeing clinicians to attend to more patients, increasing their revenue stream and efficiency
