TOKYO -- Sony Group and affiliate M3 have combined their gaming and medical know-how to help patients manage their own rehabilitation at home through a mobile app and wearable device.

SapplyM, a 51-49 joint venture between medical portal operator M3 and Sony, on Tuesday launched a service to help people recover their mobility after experiencing a stroke. The smartphone app lets users train at their own pace following exercises that meet their needs, enlisting artificial intelligence to gauge how well the patient is moving.
