Mirror therapy is a drug free treatment and has been described in medical literature to be of benefit to 80% of users – some even report numbers as high as 95% and that rehabilitation can be dramatically improved by integrating physical and mental practice. This works by utilizing mirrors to give an illusion that the brain interprets as movement of their involved hand or limb. The patient places the affected limb inside the mirror box and their unaffected limb in front of the mirror. Seeing the reflection of the unaffected limb, the patient receives visual feedback from a virtual image of their affected limb appearing as if it is normal. It known that all pain often derives from the brain and its perceived threat of a situation. Scanning the brain using a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) has shown that by using a Mirror Box as often and as long as is comfortable the Neuro network within the brain can start to rewire itself to map its new profile and compensate for the damaged or missing limb, improving the patients’ quality of life. Improvements come with repeated exercises. This is why a portable, collapsible and lightweight mirror box is an invaluable tool in your recovery, allowing you to do your rehabilitation exercises wherever and whenever you wish.
