The ArmeoPower is a robotic device intended for the rehabilitation of patients with severe to moderate impairments in upper limb function. The ArmeoPower provides functional training to improve upper limb function.
The ArmeoPower consists of a motorized arm orthosis, which supports the weight of a patient’s arm and assists the patient’s movements as needed during functional upper limb exercises. The ArmeoPower can also be used to provide passive mobilization of the patient’s upper limb. The device includes a pressure sensitive handgrip or a motorized hand module assisting hand opening and closing (ManovoPower). The arm orthosis acts as input for the device-specific therapy software. The software includes motivating, game-like exercises which simulate activities of daily life and are presented to the patient on a computer screen. The ArmeoPower allows the therapist to adapt the therapy parameters via a user interface to individualize therapy and address patient-specific needs. The ArmeoPower can objectively assess joint range of motion and isometric torque, movement workspace and movement quality, and produce therapy reports.
The ArmeoPower is intended for the rehabilitative treatment of patients with severe to moderate impairments in upper limb function. These impairments can be caused by different diseases, including, but not limited to, neurological diseases, for instance stroke.
