We are delighted to announce that The Wellington Hospital, part of HCA Healthcare UK, have taken delivery of the Lokomat®Pro Sensation and Armeo®Spring Pro and are now fully trained to use this innovative rehabilitation technology.

These state-of-the-art therapy devices, developed by our sales partner Hocoma and supplied in the UK by Summit Medical and Scientific, are joining The Wellington Hospital’s Rehabilitation Centre – who have championed the use of rehabilitation technology for over a decade.


Rob Bateman, Clinical Specialist Physiotherapist at The Wellington Hospital, said:For the past 12 years we have been at the forefront of integrating technology within neurorehabilitation. Patients following neurological injury have benefitted hugely from both the Lokomat® and Armeo®Spring during this time. Today marks another milestone on the Acute Neurorehabilitation Unit with the upgrade to the Lokomat®Pro Sensation and Armeo®Spring Pro. These devices will enable our therapy team to continue to delivery highly intensive, evidenced informed therapy for our patients.

Sara Brammall, Managing Director at Summit Medical and Scientific, said:We are proud to support The Wellington Hospital with this significant upgrade to their Acute Neurorehabilitation Unit. Advanced robotic technology can make a vital difference in the recovery of severely unwell patients, from increasing patient safety to maximising the intensity and repetitions which are vitally required for neural plasticity. We’re looking forward to seeing the progress patients make with the Lokomat®Pro Sensation and the first Armeo®Spring Pro in the UK.

Slavko Škafar, Senior VP of Sales, EMEA, at Hocoma said: “We are honoured to see Hocoma’s solutions being utilised at The Wellington Hospital, supporting patient recovery in their Acute Neurorehabilitation Unit. The latest additions to their portfolio, the Lokomat®Pro Sensation and Armeo®Spring Pro, will continue empowering the hospital’s dedicated team in their daily efforts to enhance patient recovery. Thank you for your ongoing trust, and we look forward to witnessing the inspiring stories of patients from the Acute Neurorehabilitation Unit.”

About the Armeo®Spring Pro

The Armeo®Spring Pro is the latest development in upper limb rehabilitation technology from our partner Hocoma.

With customisable arm weight support, powered by patented TrueG technology, the Armeo®Spring Pro allows patients to receive precise arm weight support from shoulder extension to shoulder flexion. Patients perform a high number of repetitions of grasp and reach movements, taking their therapy to the next level.

The Armeo®Spring Pro enables training of the entire movement chain from the shoulder to the hand. This customisable exoskeleton facilitates personalised therapy by allowing therapists to block specific joints and focus on selective movements. Game-like Augmented Performance Feedback and Virtual Reality exercises motivate to train actively core movement patterns that are commonly used in activities of daily living.

The Lokomat®Pro Sensation is the latest development in Lokomat® technology.
