ArmeoSpring, ManovoSpring and ArmeoSpring Pediatric are rehabilitative exercise devices intended for patients who have lost their function, or have restricted function, in their upper extremities caused by central or peripheral nervous system damage, muscular disorders or bone-related disorders. These devices allow the patient to train specific exercises in order to increase muscle strength and range of motion in different joints, with the overall goal of improving motor function. Furthermore, they assist clinicians in evaluating changes in motor function as therapy progresses.
Taking into account the contraindications and every patient’s individual profile, indications for the use of the ArmeoSpring, ManovoSpring and ArmeoSpring Pediatric are:
- Stroke/ Hemiplegia
- Multiple sclerosis (MS)
