The combination of hardware and software with a vision of helping improve the quality of life of patients with disabilities were the impulse behind Xcanda, a word that comes from the Zapotec language meaning "hope".
It is an integrated system for physical rehabilitation that offers therapy for different types and levels of disability.
Xcanda bases its therapeutic potential mainly on sensory and integrated stimulation, dealing with senses such as sight, touch, hearing and smell. That is why, according to its founders, it can be applied to different levels and types of disability, and "offers the possibility of early care provision for future integration into society and independence in adult life."
