With our adaptability features, the exercises can be tailored to the patient’s specific needs and made to be the appropriate difficulty level for them.
HappyNeuron Pro’s exercises can be used with individual patients, and in a group therapy context. They may be completed remotely or in person, and home workouts can be assigned to the patient so they get consistent practice in between sessions with the clinician.
