The Face2Face Facial Palsy app is a tool designed to supplement treatment for facial paralysis caused by Bells Palsy, stroke, and acoustic neuroma. However, many of these patients avoid mirrors due to the anxiety of looking at their asymmetric facial features.
The Face2Face Facial Palsy App mirrors the healthy side of the face over the unhealthy side; which allows for patients to exercise their facial muscles, while seeing their face wholly healthy. Mirror biofeedback therapy has been linked to positive outcomes in the treatment of idiopathic facial palsy.
Mirror book therapy is currently used for facial exercise activities. Kapios Health digitized this process and added instructional videos for at home use.
Twice reflected split mirror encourages exercising the facial muscles.
