The ValedoShape, ValedoMotion and Valedo are complementary products for a healthy back and offer a continuous solution from spine assessment to therapy in the clinic and at home. The Valedo Therapy Concept is the ideal addition to back pain treatment, offering clinical assessments and functional exercise training.
Advantages for Therapists
Therapists appreciate the effective therapy concept that runs from assessment to treatment. The clinical assessments and automated reporting enable them to objectively track and document the progress of the therapy while the improved teaching functionality educates the patient on how to do the movements correctly. Furthermore, the concept offers tools to track and monitor the patient’s therapy compliance at home. With the modern and motivating Valedo Therapy Concept, therapists can attract and treat more patients and create new business opportunities.
Advantages for Patients
The Valedo Therapy Concept supports patients in reaching their therapy goals by increasing their motivation and training compliance with the therapy. By training the correct movements more frequently and with a higher intensity, patients can actively maximize their therapy potential. Visualizing and documenting the therapy progress is helpful for both patients and therapists as well as their communication.
Clinical Story - Wilbert Derksen, Successful Integration of the Valedo Therapy Concept
To create the most suitable therapy plan for his patients, Wilbert Derksen plans and discusses the exercises with them beforehand. "The patient can plan the movement and then train as part of the exercises," explains Wilbert. As the patient improves, Wilbert increases the difficulty level to maintain the challenge and the progress. Once they learn the correct movements, the patients can also train at home with the Valedo. "For me as a physiotherapist, it is extremely important that my patients also exercise at home. If they don’t, we make very slow progress in remedying their back pain." When he started working with the Valedo Therapy Concept, Wilbert thought the devices would only attract a specific patient group. "I initially thought that this therapy would only be of interest to young male patients. However, I found out that the ValedoMotion and the Valedo are equally suitable and highly motivating for all my patients." With the Valedo Therapy Concept, he has not only motivated his existing patients, but also received many new ones by promoting this therapy. In addition to the therapy at his clinic in Rorschach, Switzerland, Wilbert's patients have the opportunity to rent or buy the Valedo from Wilbert for therapy at home. "Thanks to Valedo, I now have the opportunity to see the type of exercises they do and how often – and I can track their progress. The most motivational aspect is actually seeing their progress with regard to accuracy, fluidity and isolation and it is very special to see how much they enjoy training with the software."
Wilbert Derksen is a physiotherapist who successfully uses the Valedo Therapy Concept as part of the daily clinical routine at his clinic in Rorschach, Switzerland.
Patient Story - Regaining her Zest for Life
After reading about the Valedo in a Swiss magazine, Marian Keller decided to find a clinic that offered this therapy close to her. "I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis 38 years ago," Marian explains. "Over the years I acquired some very poor movement patterns. I had difficulties walking and always had to plan accordingly when I was going somewhere I didn't know." After training with the ValedoMotion once a week for a month at Wilbert Derksen's clinic in Rorschach, Switzerland, Marian noticed some major improvements. "I not only improved my mobility, but also my zest for life! I have more energy now, and my everyday routine is much easier." Motivated by the therapy and improvement she sees and feels, Marian looks forward to continuing therapy with the Valedo at home. "I tried so many different types of therapy and it was always very stressful for me. With the ValedoMotion, I not only changed the way I move, but also the way I see and feel my body. It's fantastic!"
Expert Opinion - Kevin Eisele, PT
“As the accurate sensors of the Valedo Therapy Concept capture even the smallest movements, the feedback for our patients is excellent. As a result, the ValedoMotion is a huge communication aid when practicing, carrying out and measuring the effectiveness of more precise movements. The documentation and reporting functionality allows the patient to visualize the progress of the therapy. This enables us to explain the goals and therapeutic measures to patients in a clear and concise manner. By understanding these aims, the patients are more motivated and adhere to the therapy and exercises more closely.”

Patient Story - Isabell Eisele, Chronic Back Pain
Isabell's congenital spondylolisthesis was causing her some pain but not enough to influence her active life or her daily routine as a therapist. But after suffering two herniated spinal discs in 2013, Isabell experienced severe restriction in her mobility due to pain in her lower back. "I couldn't walk or stand without feeling a radiating pain," she says. "I wasn't able to do therapy sessions with my patients while standing any longer or go running, which is my main hobby." At a medical fair, her husband and physiotherapist, Kevin, learned about the ValedoMotion and decided to try the therapy with Isabell. "With the ValedoMotion I can target a specific movement and concentrate on improving it," says Isabell. She felt an improvement after every single session and this gave her motivation an additional boost. "This sustainable progress is essential for lower back pain therapy, as it keeps the patient going," she says. Isabell is now able to run more than three kilometers without feeling any pain.
