It is based on the motivation of patients encouraged with fun video games. This concept seeks a specific movement from the patient, which then activates the aimed muscle group.
Armeo Spring is adaptable to the anatomy of all patients, because with the help of the exoskeleton with integrated springs, it includes the whole arm, from the shoulder to the hand, and helps in making active movements along with software video games. With the help of this robot it is done the work on the movement in the arm from the shoulder to the hand, and with the exercises that include the whole arm it is increased the intensity of the usage of arms on the most natural way. It is special because it records even the slightest movement of the arm.
The integrated sensors record every movement on the joints during exercises. Those data are later used for the comparison and documentation of the patient’s improvement. Exercising on the Armeo device encourages a bigger interaction of the patient with the device that leads to a higher independence of the arm’s movement. Examples of our patients show incredible advancements in everyday activities which makes their life less dependable on other people.
