Reha Technology Launches the Armotion™, a Device for the Rehabilitation of the Upper Extremity
Date:7/14/2014

Olten, Switzerland (PRWEB) July 14, 2014

Reha Technology today announced the worldwide launch of the Armotion™, a compact, portable and full-featured upper extremity robotic trainer that offers functional, robotic-assisted therapy through the use of interactive games and challenges in a lightweight and economic package.

Latest Advancement in Occupational Therapy

Armotion combines a variety of complex features and feedback options in order to maximize the therapy effect for patients with severe and moderate neuromuscular dysfunctions of the upper extremity. Passive therapy options allow early-stage patients to safely experience and learn shoulder and elbow motions whereas more advanced users benefit from an active assistive technology that enhances the therapy experience and challenges the patient in cognitive training in memory and sequencing to complement gains in movement and strength. The patient’s motivation is further increased through visual feedback and the competitive nature of multiple ADL-related (Activities of Daily Living) game types.

“We are convinced that the Armotion will help patients achieve earlier therapy successes and better functional results by implementing this advanced technology into their rehabilitation routines,” comments René Trost, CEO of Reha Technology.

Data Collection and Reporting

The device is communicating wirelessly with the computer, exchanging, recording and evaluating data on patient performance and therapy progress. Unlike conventional therapy, the Armotion offers the possibility of real-time data monitoring which can be used to optimize individual therapy sessions and acquire helpful data for research and reimbursement purposes.
