Conventional tilt table training is a standard treatment in intensive care and is integrated as part of the early mobilization program of neurologically impaired patients with sensorimotor impairments. The aim of this treatment is to stabilize the cardiovascular system and gradually improve the patient’s ability to remain in a vertical position, also to slowly accustom the legs to tolerate the patient’s body weight. Another treatment goal after injury is to induce a physiological stepping pattern early post incident in order to positively influence neuroplasticity and functional recovery and prevent secondary damage such as contractures and muscular atrophy.
Erigo training combines both treatments by gradual verticalization (0 – 90°) while applying continuous step-like movements subjecting patients’ lower limbs to a wide range of movement patterns and loads.
As the mobilization of severely affected patients is very labor intensive, the Erigo supports clinicians during early mobilization. It can facilitate verticalization and mobilization of bedbound patients while applying load to their lower limbs.
The ErigoPro is intended for medical purposes such as to increase tolerance to an upright or standing position in patients with circulatory, neurological, or musculoskeletal conditions. The ErigoPro is also used for:
- Relaxation of muscle spasms
- Prevention or retardation of disuse atrophy / redevelop muscles
- Increasing local blood circulation
- Maintaining or increasing joint range of motion
The ErigoPro is for prescription use only.
