Penumbra VR device wins FDA clearance

Penumbra recently announced that it has received FDA 510(k) clearance for its Real Immersive virtual reality system.

The Real Immersive System is an immersive virtual reality and display system that tracks upper extremity rehabilitation exercises for adults who have symptoms related to acute pain, cerebral palsy, stroke, orthopedic or neurodegenerative diseases. The exercise routines with the Real Immersive System are designed to be done in a seated position in a clinical environment, according to Penumbra.

The system features a clinician tablet, head-mounted display component, small sensors, large sensor, sensor charger, router, router battery, HMD controller, power cords and USB cables. The small and large sensors have mechanical and electrical components that can measure motion and direction in the physical space and then translate that information into a virtual environment.
