InMotion® Robotic Therapy

InMotion® Robotic Therapy improves upper-extremity motor retraining for patients following neurological conditions and injuries.

  • The InMotion® Arm, and Arm/Hand enhance the therapist’s ability to drive repetition and neuroplasticity
  • Helps to restore motor function and improve outcomes.

What do Clinicians and Patients Say about InMotion® Interactive Therapy?

Use of the InMotion® ARM for Stroke and SCI rehabilitation at The Tallahassee Memorial Rehabilitation Center

Extensive Evidence Base: 25+ years of Research and more than 150 Independent Peer-reviewed Publications

Pediatrice Robot Therapy
InMotion® Robots have been tested by leading medical centers in more than 150, independent controlled clinical trials, including large randomized, double-blind, peer-reviewed clinical studies involving more than 1700 patients.

Improved Outcomes Across a Wide Range of Patient Populations:

  • Adult and Pediatric patients (4 years and older)
  • Acute, subacute and chronic phases of recovery
  • Severe, moderate and mild levels of impairment

BIONIK’s modular approach to neurorehabilitation is optimizes the use of robotics and is consistent with the latest neuro-scientific research. InMotion® Interactive Therapy serves as an effective adjunct to existing physical and occupational therapy approaches.

Chronic Stroke Treatment: Clinically Significant Results

Mr. Rogers. TMH Patient undergoing treatment for Stroke
In a multi-center, randomized controlled trial involving 127 chronic stroke patients with moderate to severe upper-limb impairment, InMotion therapy demonstrated significant findings:

  • Improvement in arm movement, function and quality of life.
  • Evidence of potential long-term benefits.
  • Challenge the widely held clinical belief that gains in motor function are not possible for long term stroke survivors.” 1

Double the Impairment Reduction!

In a controlled clinical study involving 56 stroke inpatients, the motor skills of the robot-treated group improved significantly more than the control group. Analysis showed that interactive robotic therapy significantly reduced motor impairment of the treated limbs, doubling the impairment reduction. 2

InMotion® HAND Robot

BIONIK robotic products have exceptional capacity for patient assessment and real-time interactive response, which sets them apart from other therapy systems.

  • 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.
