InMotion® Robotics for Physical Therapy
Want to talk to a clinical specialist?
Compelling Gait Research Presented by:
Dr. Kari Fisher OTD, OTR/L, C/NDT
Case Example: 66 y/o patient “massive” Ischemic CVA.
Therapy utilizes InMotion Robotics to promote improved Gait performance.
Alternate Patient Positions
Alternate patient positions open up new treatment options for Physical Therapists. Now increase trunk control, stability and balance by engaging the patient with InMotion Arm while in alternate positions.
- Dynamic Sitting
InMotion® Therapy: Extensive Evidence Base: 25+ years of Research and more than 150 Independent Peer-reviewed Publications
Adult and Pediatric patients (4 years and older)
Acute, subacute and chronic phases of recovery
Severe, moderate and mild levels of impairment
Advanced Technology: Powered by Robotic A.I.
- Senses the patient’s movement and responds to a patient’s continually-changing ability
- Robots guide the exercise treatment accordingly
- If the patient is unable to move, the robot gently assists the patient to initiate movement towards the target
- If coordination is a problem, the robot “guides” the movement, allowing the patient to move towards the target and making certain that the patient is practicing the movement
the correct way
- As the patient gains movement control, the robot provides less assistance and continually challenges the patient
- Provides quantifiable feedback on progress and performance
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.
