We are delighted to return to #ACPIN2022 – the annual conference of Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Neurology. Click here to register.

Taking place at the Royal College of Physicians on Monday 11th and Tuesday 12th of July, the programme is packed with insightful talks and sessions.

“This conference will aim to strongly focus on examining our rehabilitation culture, drivers for change at the patient and therapist level, including how change is possible and what it entails. The foundation of this conference is built on examining the impact of what we can achieve if we all have a shared vision, understanding what underpins good practise and how to achieve it.”  – ACPIN website

Summit Medical and Scientific represent clinical technology leaders to provide the total solution for neurorehabilitation.

We are proud to supply the latest rehabilitation technology to clinics, hospitals, charities and military facilities across the UK, including the new Cleveland Clinic London, Royal Bournemouth Hospital Acute Stroke Unit, the Brain and Spinal Injury Centre (BASIC), the Defence and National Rehabilitation Centre (DNRC), Ascot Rehab, Neural Pathways, and Morrello Clinic.

Our partners Hocoma and Motek have developed innovative therapy devices using robotics, sensors and virtual reality for early and acute rehabilitation, gait and balance therapy, arm and hand therapy, body weight support and more. Click here to read more about our clinical solutions.

Demonstrating upper limb rehabilitation technology

Visit our stand in the exhibition area to talk about our technology and see a demonstration of two of our upper limb rehabilitation devices from the Armeo range: the ArmeoSpring and the ArmeoSenso. The range addresses different patient and therapeutic needs across the different stages of rehabilitation, from acute rehabilitation to moderately-impaired outpatient therapy. Read more.

The ArmeoSpring features an adjustable exoskeleton which supports the whole arm, from shoulder to hand, and counterbalances the weight of the patient’s arm. Clinics like Ascot Rehab have reported “outstanding results” with the ArmeoSpring:

“High intensity training is one of the key determinants of motor recovery which robotic therapy can offer. When combined with conventional therapy, robotic therapy yields largely favourable outcomes in terms of improving motor control, reducing motor deficits, and increasing ability to carry out activities of daily living… The results of the present pilot study suggest that upper limb functionality can be positively influenced by robotic therapy combined with a traditional therapy program.”   Read more.

The ArmeoSenso is the sensor-based solution for patients with moderate to mild impairment who have progressed to self-initiated therapy. Hospitals like University Children’s Hospital Zurich use the ArmeoSenso with their paediatric patients:

“The ArmeoSenso fills a niche in our range of technologies, as it allows us to focus specifically on training selective movements as well as strength-endurance in those children who can lift their arm against gravity… Due to the combination with game-like exercises, the children like to train with the device and perform many repetitions of arm and hand movements. This supports the recovery of arm and hand motor function (for example, reaching workspace and movement coordination).”  Read more.

About Hocoma

Our devices from Hocoma include:

– The Andago free-moving overground robotic body weight support system.
– The 3-device Armeo Therapy Concept for upper limb rehabilitation.
– The Erigo robotic tilt-table for early verticalisation, with cyclic leg movement and FES therapy.
– The Lokomat for intensive early robotic-assisted gait training.

About Motek

Our devices from Motek include:

– The CAREN (Computer Assisted Rehabilitation Environment), a versatile, multi-sensory system for clinical gait and balance training.
– The C-Mill treadmill for the evaluation and training of impaired gait and balance using virtual reality, augmented reality and force plate technology.
– The HERO Solution for complete functional rehabilitation after long-term immobilisation such as COVID-19.
– The GRAIL (Gait Realtime Analysis Interactive Lab) for gait analysis and training in challenging conditions.
– The next generation RYSEN 3D body weight support system, assisting patients in an unrestricted, all-directional, assist as-needed capacity.
