Hocoma Armeo case study, Rheinburg-Klinik, Switzerland
“I can’t over-emphasise how important it is that the effort with the Armeo is self-initiated. In hands-on therapy, the initiation often comes from the therapist. With the Armeo, it’s coming from the patient’s own brain.” – Louise Rutz-LaPitz, PT Director of Therapy and Training.
Rheinburg-Klinik in Walzenhausen, Switzerland, was the first in the world to use the Armeo®, a medical device for upper extremity functional rehabilitation. Read more about the Armeo range of devices here.
Rheinburg-Klinik is a private 55-bed rehabilitation clinic overlooking Lake Constance. It concentrates on treating patients with neurological diseases and conditions (e.g. stroke, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis) and orthopaedic diseases such as spinal and joint disorders, joint replacements etc.
In this case study, you can find out more about how the Armeo fits in with the clinic’s therapy plans, how the clinic uses robotic devices to engage and motivate stroke patients, as well as first-hand feedback from experts and patients.
