NEWTON, Mass., May 29, 2019—The Learning Corp, a next generation digital therapeutics company, today announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) issued U.S. Patent #10,283,006 covering the process the company and its products use to deliver personalized digital therapy.
The patent was secured as the company marked a major milestone: users of its flagship Constant Therapy app have now completed 100 million exercises as part of a recovery plan to regain cognitive and speech skills after a stroke or brain injury, or as a result of a neurological condition such as dementia.
The patent covers the underlying technology at the heart of the company’s products and services, including aspects of its AI-based Neuro Performance Engine (NPE). The NPE presents—and constantly adjusts—tasks or exercises based on the user’s past performance data, and on performance data from thousands of other users who are living with the same condition. Personalized tasks or exercises are delivered to the user at the right time, appropriately targeted to the therapy and recovery process and the user’s goals. With 100 million exercises completed, The Learning Corp has created the world’s largest database of brain rehabilitation data to advance the science of brain recovery.
“Our dream was to use advanced technology and real world evidence to put recovery in users’ hands,” said Co-founder and Chief Technology Officer Veera Anantha. “This patent confirms that what we’ve developed and brought to market is truly unique. We can now securely make our technology available to partners, and bring even more benefit to future products and conditions.”
