5 things you need to know about the ROBERT by Life Science Robotics
Life Science Robotics
Life Science Robotics are specialists in creating robotic rehabilitation devices for the healthcare sector, developing the ROBERT® – an innovative therapy device for early and acute mobilisation. Using the ROBERT®, therapists perform the initial movement and then the device repeats this to deliver the desired frequency and intensity.
Brand new to the UK, here are the 5 things you need to know about the ROBERT®.
1. ROBERT® is the only acute therapy device that can train upper and lower limb
Did you know that ROBERT® can provide intensive therapy for both the upper and lower limb?
With separate modules for the upper and lower extremities, the ROBERT® is uniquely positioned to provide functional movement rehabilitation for all the clinical exercises a patient might need.
With ROBERT®, patients can receive unlimited training for intensive rehabilitation, while the therapists’ heavy workload and physical strain is highly reduced.
2. ROBERT® has seven degrees of freedom
For patients, ROBERT® has complete freedom of movement which facilitates Activities of Daily Living and Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation training with real-life objects – without any limitations.
Therapists can use the ROBERT® to train either a specific movement and joint, or on complex movements using various joints.
3. ROBERT® has three training modes
Active resistive mobilisation offers resistance against the patient’s movement. The resistance level of the exercise is adjusted to the patient’s functional strength.
Active assistive mobilisation assists the patient through the exercise. The patient’s functional strength determines the level of activity during the exercise.
Passive mobilisation supports early mobilisation for severely impaired patients, who have a reduced level of function.
4. ROBERT® is completely portable
It’s easy to move the ROBERT® from place to place, allowing therapists to transport the device throughout the clinic to each patient. Simply plug, attach, record and play using the intuitive interface.
Safe training can be completed in either a seated or in-bed position, so even completely immobile patients can benefit from upper and lower limb therapy.
With a user-friendly set up time of just three minutes, therapists can maximise the amount of therapy a patient receives in every session, resulting in more efficient and intensive therapy.
5. ROBERT® has an optional FES module
The Sensing and Stimulating (SAS) module is an additional functionality for the ROBERT®. Electromyography (EMG) triggered Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) supports active mobilisation.
ROBERT® facilitates manually recorded movements, which are then paired with an easy electrode placement which allows for a targeted treatment in early rehabilitation.
Adaptation of support is intelligently identified by ROBERT® so that the patient is assisted as needed throughout their exercise.
