Robotic Assisted Shoulder & Elbow Therapy for Impairments from:
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Cerebral Palsy
and Other Neurological Conditions or Injuries
Rehabilitation Institutes Talk About their Experiences with the InMotion® ARM
InMotion® ARM — a New Generation!
InMotion® Interactive Therapy enables clinicians to efficiently deliver intensive motor therapy to help patients regain motor function following a neurological condition or injury. This new generation InMotion ARM® is an evidence-based neurorehabilitation technology that provides patients with real-time Assistance-as-Needed™. The InMotion ARM® quietly monitors the patient’s movements during therapy while it gently assists where needed to help them complete various motor therapy activities.
The InMotion® Robots are used for neurorehabilitation in over 20 countries, including the United States. Extensive research has shown InMotion® robots to be effective for wide range of motor impairments including: Stroke, Cerebral Palsy, Spinal Cord Injury, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, hemiplegic shoulder pain and muscle spasticity.
Simple Menu Options
Tailor motor therapy to the patient’s needs with adaptive therapy protocols and easy-to-use InMotion® Software:
- Simple menus
- Streamlined workflow
- Easy report generation
InMotion® ARM Therapy Tasks
Intensive — 1024 potential movements per therapy session with evidence-based treatment protocols.
Flexible — Therapy protocols allowing clinicians to customize treatment.
Therapeutic exercise for:
- Motor planning
- Eye-hand coordination
- Attention, visual field deficits/neglect
- Massed practice
By measuring patient kinematic and kinetic data objectively, BIONIK’s InMotion® Robots have shown that for severe to moderate brain injury the effectiveness of therapy is optimized by allowing the robots to focus on reducing impairment and allowing the therapist to assist on translating the gains in impairment into function.
