Filisia now accepts pre-orders for its assistive technology device Monoma, a creative and interactive product for people with additional needs, which is used for cognitive, occupational, music therapy and special education needs training.

Monoma hardware and training software are fully customizable tools with a broad range of applications. Clients with medium to severe cases of kinetic, cognitive, neurological or sensory deficits can benefit from the regular use of Monoma. Our system is appropriate for learning and therapeutic sessions at rehabilitation centers, clinics, special schools, mainstream schools, private therapeutic centers or at home (with therapists/educators). Professionals from a variety of fields (occupational therapists , physical therapists, music therapists, teachers and Special Education Needs professionals) have been customizing our system to match their exact needs.

"It is simple, versatile and can be used for sensorimotor, motor, cognitive, learning, creative and communication training! The way it combines lights and sound is instantly rewarding. It is more physical than just a touchscreen and more clearcut than papers, pencils and colors. Most importantly, it is really fun to use!" says Stavros Psaroudakis, MSc Psychology & Special Needs Educator.

Monoma solves two distinct problems of people with neuromuscular, sensory and cognitive challenges:

Monoma is a modular set of tactile and wireless units that are dynamic, touch sensitive and contain LED lights.


Users can press, touch and move the units around, or play together with their friends. The software of Monoma enables people's musical expression and game-playing through their laptops, tablets and mobile devices.

Therapists and educators can select among musical games, such as improvisation and orchestration, memory exercises, speed, coordination and reaction to stimuli exercises.

Monoma also collects data of the persons' physical and cognitive abilities, and presents it to their therapists, families and educators so they can track their progress.

The system has been developed by Filisia Interfaces in cooperation with 60+ therapists, special needs educators, clients and families employing ergonomic and "user as a designer" design techniques.

According to therapists who have evaluated Monoma, it is beneficial in four distinct ways, as:
