The advantage of robotic rehabilitation therapy

Robot-assisted therapy can be used by physical therapists in conjunction with traditional physiotherapy approaches. Rehabilitation robotics include a wide range of training devices with the main purpose to train lost body functions caused by neurological or traumatic events.

Lower and upper extremity rehabilitation can require significant time and physical effort on the part of physiotherapists. The use of robotic devices is a highly motivating method, as it allows for repetitive, intensive and task specific training, whilst potentially offloading therapists burden.

What is the difference between end-effector and exoskeleton robots?

Rehabilitation robots are often classified into two types, end-effectors and exoskeletons according to their mechanical structure. 

An end-effector device is connected to the patient at a distal segment, for example feet and the force generated at this point change position of other joints simultaneously. Whereas an exoskeleton is connected to multiple points on the patient and each single joint is guided along a pre-programmed trajectory. 

Why is robotic rehabilitation so important?

Robotic rehabilitation technology presents a significant opportunity for rehabilitation clinics and therapists to administer intensive and high-dosage training for individuals with physical disabilities. It can be children, adolescents and adults in different phases of the rehabilitation process from acute to later chronic phase. Innovative rehabiliation techonology serves as efficient tools, concurrently alleviating the workload on therapists. 

The advantages of incorporating robotic technology in therapy include: 

  • Intensive and high-dosage training 
  • Reduced burden on therapists
  • Time and resource savings
  • Enhanced safety in handling

Our robotic rehabilitation device, the Innowalk Pro

The Innowalk Pro stands out as a highly compact end-effector device, delivering comprehensive robotic therapy in a weight-bearing standing position. With a remarkably small footprint of only 2m², and integrated transport solution it distinguishes itself among robotic therapy devices, making it suitable even for smaller facilities.A broad type of patients, spanning from children to adults in various stages of rehabiliation, derive benefits from the Innowalk Pro. This includes individuals in the early intervention phase post-trauma to those in the later chronic phase, encompassing both severely affected and complex patients
