To see the own legs in motion (even though passively) gives back hope to the patients on intensive care unit and motivates them to engage in their rehabilitation program in the best possible way .

Paraplegia

Recovering residual muscle strength, loosening spasm

The movement therapy device MOTOmed enables paraplegia patients with restricted mobility a motor-driven and motor-assisted leg and/or arm training out of a wheelchair. 

The special smooth drive system and the spasm detection help to reduce muscle tone and spasms significantly. Through the function “ServoCycling” patients with incomplete paralysis are able to recover, maintain and establish residual muscle strength. In addition, the passive MOTOmed movement may loosen the muscles, stimulate joint flexibility and activate the circulatory system as well as the metabolism. 

Functional Electric Stimulation (FES)

MOTOmed movement therapy with incomplete paraplegia

In combination with FES, paraplegic patients even with complete paralysis train quasi actively with the MOTOmed device. Little self-adhesive electrodes activate arms or legs by giving electric impulses. “Real” muscle contractions take place and a further muscle loss is avoided. 
MOTOmed movement therapy on a regular basis enables paraplegic patients an effective cardio-vascular training.
