Hocoma ArmeoSpring available for demonstrations and trials
We are pleased to now offer the Hocoma ArmeoSpring upper limb rehabilitation device for demonstrations and clinical trials in the UK.
The ArmeoSpring allows simultaneous arm and hand training in an extensive 3D workspace with six degrees of freedom. This enables patients to practice the movements that are key for their therapy progress and daily life.
The ArmeoSpring features an adjustable exoskeleton which supports the whole arm, from shoulder to hand, and counterbalances the weight of the patient’s arm. By providing arm weight support, the ArmeoSpring enables patients to use any remaining motor functions and encourages them to achieve a higher number of reach and grasp movements based on specific therapy goals.
The activities are based on the patient’s own movements, and built-in sensors record the active movements and all joint angles during the therapy session. The ArmeoSpring enables therapists to deliver higher training efficiency (more hours per day) thanks to self-directed therapy, which may lead to better long-term outcomes. This is possible by reducing the need for continuous therapeutic guidance, thus giving therapists the possibility to supervise more than one patient at a time.
We are also pleased to offer clinical trials and demonstrations of the Hocoma Andago robotic body weight support system, and the Hocoma ArmeoSenso sensor-based upper limb rehabilitation device.
