REAL Pinball™ – Functional Movement Patterns

REAL System Pinball experience focusing on function movement pattern therapy
REAL System Pinball experience focusing on functional movement and reflex rehabilitation

Patients aim for their highest scores in this fast-paced, vintage pinball experience. REAL Pinball includes three activities with three different pinball table themes. REAL Pinball focuses on various impairments for patients including – functional movement patterns, dynamic reaching, dynamic sitting balance, postural control, visual recognition, motor control, reactive movement, reflexes, elbow flexion and extension, shoulder flexion, cognition, and multi-tasking.

There are three pinball tables that offer a range of stimulation levels for the patient based on their unique needs. The pinball launch in each table is gaze aimed and can be automatic. This allows the patient to aim each pinball launch using their gaze, promoting cervical range of motion to target various elements with each pinball launch.

Functional Movement Rehabilitation Activities

Carnival Blast


Step right up and join in on circus fun, testing your patient’s range of motion and endurance as they try to score as many points as possible before losing all the pinballs.

Alien Arrival


Using range of motion, patients engage in a friendly battle against an alien UFO across three different pinball challenges. An evil alien ruler activates UFOs, robots, and more designed to challenge and motivate patients as they play. When patients successfully hit key targets, the evil ruler acts every bit the sore loser.

Magical Garden



Discover your patient’s magic abilities using range of motion and complete various pinball challenges and missions in an enchanted miniature garden. Magical Garden offers a more relaxing and cozy experience in contrast to Carnival Blast and Alien Arrival pinball tables.
