Armeo®Spring - Functional Arm and Hand Therapy

Armeo®Spring

The ArmeoSpring is suitable for the widest range of patients from severely to moderately affected. It is specifically designed for patients who are beginning to regain active movement of the arm and hand.

Often becoming the preferred therapy choice of recovering patients, it is based on research and development conducted under Prof. D. Reinkensmeyer at the University of California, Irvine (UCI) and at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC).

The ArmeoSpring is the most widely used arm and hand rehabilitation exoskeleton. It provides the following key benefits:

  • Enables independent arm and hand training for moderately to severely impaired patients
    • Ergonomic exoskeleton enables functional and self-initiated movement therapy
    • Extensive 3D workspace supports simultaneous arm and hand therapy
  • Motivates patients with Augmented Performance Feedback exercises for arm and hand training
  • Provides assessments for an objective analysis and documentation of patient progress

Clinical Success Using the Armeo®Spring

By integrating the ArmeoSpring solution into its daily clinical routine, the occupational therapy team at St. Mauritius Therapieklinik has managed to achieve its objectives efficiently and effectively. The team has defined a clinical pathway, grouping patients according to their degree of motor impairment. Those with similar impairments are trained in groups, with each therapist supervising two patients simultaneously.
