NEXCOM’s Embedded Computer Digitalizes Conventional Rehabilitation Therapy

Application Story: NEXCOM’s Embedded Computer Digitalizes Conventional Rehabilitation Therapy

Mirror therapy is to trick the patients’ brain’s neuroplasticity, used to attempt in improving one’s motor function after a stroke. Initially, a mirror is used to fabricate a reflective illusion of the affected limb, creating positive visual feedback of its movements. Research has stated that as the motor cortex detects signs of potential relief, pain and paralysis were moderately reduced and improved respectively. To satisfy the best of both worlds, NEXCOM is tasked to implement the 11th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-1185G7E with built-in Iris Xe Graphic-based fanless embedded system in rehabilitation clinics. This compact and powerful embedded computer ensures utmost visual communication via a multi-display setup, convenient content management, and considerate customizable options.


Applied in rehab clinics, NEXCOM’s compact and fanless NDiS V1100 is a powerful embedded computer that provides patients with lower limbs mirror therapy. Instead of using mirrors, several modern clinics digitalize their equipment, connecting up to three cameras via three USB 3.0 ports to deliver real-time information. Whereas, the three USB 2.0 ports are to perform maintenance through peripherals. A vibrant 4K@60Hz multi-display setup is supported through its four HDMI ports, three displaying the limb’s different angles and the other presenting data for the therapist. Depending on the circumstances, both wireless and LAN are provided to manage content information conveniently throughout the database. Other essential features include one Intel® GbE LAN for high-speed control center connection, one M.2 Key M for SSD, and one mini-PCIe slot for Wi-Fi or Bluetooth module.

For NEXCOM, service quality has always been a top priority. Thereby, to fulfill users’ demands, customizable I/Os and mechanical design for better heat dissipation are offered on the NDiS V1100. Beyond I/Os, BIOS can also be customized to set and display customers’ logos whenever the mirror therapy system is initiated; promoting brand recognition. With concerns for technical troubleshooting, NEXCOM’s BIOS engineers and FAE are always on duty to offer full technical support for customers with any issues.


The NDiS V1100 is an excellent and silent fanless computer, perfectly suited for the quiet clinical environment. While being integrated snugly under screens, it handles clinical applications reliably and powerfully, delivering vivid 4K content onto a multi-display setup. With the processing power in enabling AI applications, it enhances and strengthens the healthcare system of rehab clinics.
