Armeo Spring - Functional Arm and Hand Therapy
The Armeo Therapy Concept - is a sustainable and powerful therapy concept for individuals who have suffered strokes, traumatic brain injury or neurological disorders resulting in hand and arm impairment.
ARMEO SPRINGdevice has been made to return the function of the upper extremities to the people who lost it partially or completely because of some neurological, spinal and muscle-bone damage.
The concept of performing exercises on ARMEO device is based on the motivation of patients encouraged by amusing video games. Each game has been conceived to demand from the patient a certain kind of movement as soon as the wanted muscles are activated.
ARMEO is adaptable to the anatomy of any adult patient because with the help of exoskeleton and its integrated springs it encircles the whole arm from the shoulder to the fist so assisting in making active movements followed by software video games.
Armeo is special because it registers even the least arm movements, while working on programmed video games it estimates motoric abilities and coordination of patients.
Also, the built-in sensors record a movement on each joint during the whole exercising and then store them into a computer in order to use them for estimation, comparison or documenting the patient’ s advance.
Indications for Armeo:
- Multiple sclerosis
- Celebral paralysus
- Spinal cord injury
- Post surgery damage
- Neoplasms of the central nervous system
- Traumatic brain injury
- Endoprosthesis:shoulder and elbow
- Plexus brachialis injury
- Parkinson diease
The primary goal of modern therapeutic concepts is to maintain and restore the motor skills of the affected arm. Similar to gait rehabilitation, the biological basis of the restoration of motor skills is neural plasticity; i.e. the brain’s ability to adapt itself to changed conditions by reorganizing itself (e.g. by building new synapses and facilitating suppressed neural networks). The latest clinical findings show that therapeutic methods that are based on active, high-intensity, task-specific movement training are superior to traditional methods.
The Armeo Therapy concept supports functional, task-specific, self-directed and intensive movement therapy in a motivating and inspiring environment. Even severely impaired patients can practice independently, without the constant presence of a therapist, allowing patients to fully potential for recovery.
The ArmeoSpring is suitable for the widest range of patients from severely to moderately affected. It is specifically designed for patients who are beginning to regain active movement of the arm and hand.
The ArmeoSpring is the most widely used arm and hand rehabilitation exoskeleton. It provides the following key benefits:
- - Enables independent arm and hand training for moderately to severely impaired patients
- - Ergonomic exoskeleton enables functional and self-initiated movement therapy
- - Extensive 3D workspace supports simultaneous arm and hand therapy
- - Motivates patients with Augmented Performance Feedback exercisesfor arm and hand training
- - Provides assessments for an objective analysis and documentation of patient progress
