We offer technologies that help patients with neurological disabilities and/or paralysis to continue living an active life.
DIEGO from Tyromotion
The DIEGO system by Tyromotion is a robotic arm and shoulder rehabilitation device for rehabilitating patients with limited arm function. The device measures the range-of-motion of the affected limb and performs functional arm therapy. The DIEGO arm and shoulder therapy system consists of two arm units that hang above the patient, allowing separate therapeutic treatments for each arm. The DIEGO system provides a weight easing function for the patient‘s arm, allowing for physiological movement of the affected limbs throughout many phases of rehabilitation. The device is adjustable and can be adapted to the specific needs of a patient.
ArmeoSpring from Hocoma
By providing arm weight support, the ArmeoSpring enables patients to use any remaining motor functions and encourages them to achieve a higher number of reach and grasp movements based on specific therapy goals. This repetitive training is based on the patient’s own movements, which leads to better, faster results, and improved long-term outcomes.
The ergonomic and adjustable exoskeleton of the ArmeoSpring embraces the whole arm, from shoulder to hand, and counterbalances the weight of the patient’s arm. Built-in sensors record the active movements and all joint angles during the therapy session. An extensive library of motivating, game-like augmented performance feedback exercises have been designed to train core movement patterns commonly used in activities of daily living. Immediate performance feedback motivates patients and helps to improve their motor abilities, leading to more independence in daily routine and better quality of life.
ReWalk is a wearable robotic exoskeleton that provides powered hip and knee motion to enable individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI) to stand upright, walk, and turn.
Ekso Gait Training (EksoGT)
EskoGT is an exoskeleton, an assistive robotic device for walking. Designed to help patients stand and walk sooner than during traditional rehabilitation, EksoGT works to promote correct movement patterns in all phases of recovery and challenges patients as they progress toward independent ambulation. Clinical evidence suggests that including EksoGT gait training improves functional balance, walking distance, and gait speed in certain patient populations.
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a non-invasive, safe, and painless procedure in which a magnetic field is used to cause electric current to flow in a small targeted region of the brain-via electromagnetic induction. During a TMS procedure, a magnetic field generator, or "coil", is placed on the scalp. The coil is connected to a pulse generator, or stimulator, that delivers a changing electric current to the coil.
TMS is used diagnostically to measure activity and function of specific brain circuits and muscles to evaluate damage in a wide variety of neurological disorders. TMS can also be used as therapeutic tool when using repetitive pulses in neuropathic pain and depression.
Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation
Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) is a non-invasive brain stimulation technique used to increase or decrease activity in certain regions of the brain. TDCS uses a weak electrical current delivered through wet sponges placed over the scalp to modulate cortical excitability.
Dual X-ray Absorptiometry
Dual X-ray Absorptiometry (DXA) is a full-body scanner that measures bone density and soft tissue body composition for lean and fat tissue masses. The machine uses a dual photon beam to scan the total body from head to toe. The DXA scan provides measurements such as hip and knee bone density, total body percent fat, and regional arm, trunk and leg fat as well as lean tissue masses. The process takes approximately 20 minutes.
Virtual Reality is a computer-generated, three-dimensional environment that patients can interact with in a seemingly real way. Patients may use special electronic equipment such as a helmet with a screen inside (Google Cardboard) or the HTC Vive.
Rapael Smart Glove
Neofect Smart Glove is a high-tech stroke rehab device. Starting the training is as simple as wearing the glove, connecting to the “Neofect” app and proceeding to play the rehabilitation games. The glove measures the movement of the fingers, wrist, forearm and assess functional reach on a real-time basis. Anyone can participate in a variety of training activities on the RAPAEL app including cooking and fishing as well as more novel games in a virtual reality environment. The learning algorithm suggests the most optimal tasks for each user based on their individual performance and encourages the development of larger ranges of improved range of motion, coordination and timing.
Rapael was developed for patients with neurological and musculoskeletal injuries, such as stroke and spinal cord injury.
Neuron Up is a digital web platform aimed to support and improve neurorehabilitation and cognitive functions. It allows health care professionals to personalize therapy and track patient’s progress. With thousands of available exercises, tools, and real life simulators, Neuron Up allows patients to exercise basic cognitive functions as well as activities of daily living and social skills. Areas of cognitive rehabilitation include, but are not limited to, attention, orientation, memory, gnosis, executive functions, praxis, language, social cognition, and visuospatial skills.
Ekso NR is the latest wearable bionic exoskeleton from Ekso Bionics. It is designed as a dynamic walking, standing, strengthening, and balance robot for people with lower extremity weakness or paralysis. EKSO NR is designed for patients of all physical abilities, including those who require full motor support to stand and walk and those who are able to initiate walking on their own. Innovative software and motor sensors work to monitor each step a patient takes. EKSO NR regulates leg movement to promote normalized walking patterns. This advanced, new exoskeleton promotes motor learning for walking in people with paralysis (i.e. stroke, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury).
The MindMotion GO is an FDA approved neurorehabilitation therapy system that includes an array of engaging and motivating therapeutic games for acute and chronic stroke patients. It is designed to train a complete range of body parts including upper limbs, lower limbs, hands, and trunk to improve motor and task functions. Via real-time audio and visual compensatory feedback as well as individualized range of motion calibration, clinicians can create personalized therapy according to the patient’s needs. This technology is suitable for outpatient, inpatient, and at-home settings.
