This is a sustainable and powerful therapy concept for individuals who have suffered strokes, traumatic brain injuries or neurological disorders resulting in hand and arm impairment.
Despite the patients’ disorder, research suggests that the neural plasticity of the brain is retained and new connections can be made through intensive, repetitive and task-oriented movements.
Using this clinical evidence as a basis, the Armeo Therapy Concept has been developed. It comprises a modular line of three Armeo products all driven from a single software platform. The result is a comprehensive therapy concept which addresses different patient and therapeutic needs across the whole Continuum of Rehabilitation.
The Armeo Therapy Concept improves the efficiency of therapy treatments because the exercises are self-initiated, self-directed, functional and intense. Even severely impaired patients can practice independently, without the constant presence of a therapist, allowing patients to exploit their full potential for recovery.
The backbone of the Armeo Therapy Concept is the combination of the three key features:
"I can’t over-emphasize how important it is that the effort in the Armeo therapy is self-initiated. In hands-on therapy, the initiation often comes from the therapist. With Armeo therapy, it’s coming from the patient’s own brain."
