Lokomat®Pro - Enhanced Functional Locomotion Therapy with Augmented Performance Feedback

Locomotion therapy supported by an automated gait orthosis on a treadmill has shown to be an effective intervention for improving over-ground walking function caused by neurological diseases and injuries in many cases. The Lokomat  assists walking movements of gait-impaired patients and is used to improve mobility in individuals following stroke, spinal cord injury, cerebral palsy and multiple sclerosis as well as other neurological diseases and injuries. The LokomatPro has been on the market since 2001 and has been a crucial improvement in the art and science of locomotion therapy. The product is based on research and development activities at the Balgrist University Hospital.

The new Lokomat®Pro

The new LokomatPro consists of the robotic gait orthosis, the body weight support system Levi and a treadmill. The patient’s legs are guided on the treadmill according to a pre-programmed physiological gait pattern. The computer controlled guidance allows individual adjustments of different gait parameters. In addition to the features & functions of previous versions the new LokomatPro offers the FreeD Module as well as the Challenge Package.

Advantages of Lokomat®Pro based therapy:

  • NEW FreeD Module: further improves the therapy by supporting weight shift and balance activation through lateral and rotational movements of the pelvis
  • NEW Challenge Package: Supporting specific therapy goals for
    optimized patient challenge.
  • longer and more intensive training sessions compared to manual treadmill training
  • real time feedback for a higher motivation and compliance
  • physiological gait pattern provided by individually adjustable orthoses, guidance force and body weight support
  • assessment and reporting functionality for an easy measurement of the patient’s progress
  • Pediatric Orthoses: an optional add-on module offering the first driven gait orthosis for functional and motivating locomotion therapy for small children

"It is amazing to see how intensive locomotion therapy evolved with the Lokomat – I am very glad that we can offer this training to our patients".
