Conventional therapy today is limited – by time, by number of repetitions, by the lack of reproducible movement quality and by the fact that it is strenuous for both therapists and patients. In other words: there is a disbalance between the therapy we know we should provide according to motor learning principles and all the factors that prevent us from reaching this goal.
FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENT THERAPY – INTENSITY MATTERS
This is what we work for at Hocoma: to help people with technologies and ideas that look at functional movement therapy from a completely different angle. Because these technologies enable people to exercise intensively. Because they maximize motivation. Because they embolden patients to make possible what they’ve been told was impossible.
INTENSITY = REPETITION × EFFORT
“We improve millions of lives by providing functional and efficient solutions that set the standards for human movement therapy.”
High repetition gait and balance training with the most natural gait pattern ensures the optimal recovery potential for the path back toward independent living.
The intended use of the Lokomat is to support treadmill training to treat patients with walking disabilities caused by neurological, muscular or bone-related disorders. Available also for pediatric patients.
Andago® is used for performing gait and balance training in patients with walking or balance disabilities, caused by conditions of neurological, orthopedic, muscular, cardiovascular or other origin.
The C-Mill is an instrumented treadmill for evaluating human gait and balance and to train (impaired) gait and balance using treadmill movement, augmented reality and virtual reality.
Increased therapy intensity with high patient effort helps to effectively rehabilitate arm and hand function after neurological injury.
is rehabilitative exercise device 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. Available also for pediatric patients.
is a rehabilitative exercise device intended for patients who have lost or have restricted function in their upper extremities caused by central or peripheral nervous system damage, spinal and muscular or bone-related disorders.
is a medical device intended for patients with impaired function of the upper extremity due to e.g. a neurological condition, trauma, musculoskeletal disorders or age-related disorders. This allows the patient to train specific exercises in order to increase, muscle strength and range of motion in different joints.
Armeo®Power and Armeo®Spring can be used for rehabilitation therapy in cases of: Stroke; Multiple sclerosis (MS); Cerebral palsy (CP); Recovery from neurosurgical interventions; Spinal cord injuries (SCI); Traumatic brain injury (TBI); Muscle diseases; Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders; Upper limb ataxia; Neuropathies (e.g. Guillain-Barré syndrome).
Armeo®Spring can also be used for Stroke/ Hemiplegia; Humerus fracture; Endoprostheses; follow-up care for elbow and shoulder endoprostheses.
Armeo®Senso can be used for impaired function of the upper extremity due to neurological (e.g. stroke, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, recovery from neurosurgical interventions, Parkinson’s diseases, Guillain Barré Syndrome, plexus paralysis) or muscular disorders (e.g. muscular dystrophies) in patients who are able to self-initiate movement. Impaired function of the upper extremity due to musculoskeletal or age-related disorders (e.g. endoprosthesis, fractures, recovery from surgical interventions) in patients who are able to self-initiate movement.
Just as for any other therapy, the physician in charge is always responsible for the indication. Functional therapy with the Hocoma arm and hand solutions is not possible or indicated in every case. For contraindications and risk factors, please see legal notes.
