Learn How Robotics Improves Upper Extremity
Neurological Rehabilitation!

Check out the webinars below and learn about the principles in which robotic-assisted therapy are based. You’ll hear experienced therapists, clinical researchers and real InMotion users share their rehabilitation knowledge and patient rehabilitation experiences.

Today’s InMotion Robots are the product of decades of research and application involving thousands of patients and hundreds of therapists. Isn’t it time your rehabilitation team joined the Neurorecovery Revolution?

Upper Extremity Robotics in PT and OT: Advanced Topics in Neurological Rehabilitation

Speakers:

  • Dr. Kari Fisher, OTD, OTR/L, C/NDT
  • Dr. Sherri Wallis, PT/DPT – BIONIK Clinical Research Specialist

Summary

  • Compelling research results are presented in regards to robotic-assisted therapy approaches to improve trunk control, stability, balance and ultimately gait performance.
  • Research supporting the use of InMotion Robotics in alternative patient positions, such as dynamic sitting, kneeling and even standing are presented.

Neuroplasticity: Making the Connection with Robotics and BIONIK InMotion® Systems

Speakers:

  • Avrielle Rykman Peltz, MA, OTR/L – Rehabologym

  • Approaches, perspectives and experiences relating to this new way of treating patients will be shared.
  • The latest research and recommendations to assist patients in advancing cognition through dual tasking and cognitive training. will be presented.

Success in Treating Chronic Stroke Impairments

Marie Elise, Patient at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital, received InMotion therapy 10 years after a stroke caused her right arm to acutely contract.

“I have power now in my arm. I could open the door and I can close the door. Yesterday at the doctor's office… there was a magazine and I couldn't reach it. But I could scoot it close enough to grab it with my left hand.”

Sylvia Young OTR/L, Occupational Therapist:

One of the things the robotic arm does is it gives the patient repetition...We're able, with the [InMotion] arm, to allow them to get 100, 300, 400 movements in one session, without them being overly fatigued and of course the therapists being overly fatigued.
