The ArmeoSpring is specifically suited for patients who are beginning to regain active movement of the arm and hand, and has already proved to be successful in many clinics worldwide. 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).
Mounted on a trolley for quick and easy positioning, the ArmeoSpring offers various self-initiated repetitive therapies to increase the patient’s range of motion and selective control. The self-directed exercises motivate the patient to exert intense levels of both concentration and coordination.
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.
