Early and acute rehabilitation

Starting as early as possible

Mobilising patients who are in the ICU or acute units for serious and complex injuries as early as possible – even those who are comatose or unable to move at all – gives them the greatest chance of recovery and enhances their quality of life.

Safely moving patients who are immobile or unable to interact is very physically demanding, challenging, and time-consuming. In addition, being bedridden or unable to use your upper or lower limbs without the opportunity for intensive rehabilitation can lead to muscle weakness, cardiovascular instability, and loss of function.

Additionally, neurorehabilitation plays an important role for neural plasticity and functional recovery. Research suggests that the neural plasticity of the brain is retained after an injury, and new connections can be made through intensive, repetitive, task-oriented movements. These exercises allow the restoration of movement and functionality and motivates patients throughout their rehabilitation process.

 

It is therefore extremely beneficial to get acute patients gradually accustomed to being upright and moving again, and severe upper or lower limb patients gradually using their limbs, in a safe and controlled environment.

Robotic technology can make this vital difference to the recovery prospects of patients, even if they cannot move themselves. Using technology gets the blood pumping, their limbs moving, and reduces risk of complications further down the line.

As patients start to regain their stability and movement function, they can then progress to other devices to further their rehabilitation journey. This also frees up resources within the healthcare setting, as intensive repetitive rehabilitation at an earlier stage in a patient’s recovery helps them be discharged sooner and recover earlier at home or in the community.

Gait and balance therapy

Getting patients back on their feet

Our range of devices for gait and balance are ideal for the in-depth evaluation and intensive training of functional lower limb movement.

From starting on a robotic tilt table to walking on rehabilitation treadmills, your patients can progress from acute mobilisation and verticalisation to overground gait and balance training and treadmill-based gait adaptability training.

As the therapist, you can be hands-free and take a step back to assess their movement, providing feedback and monitoring their progress throughout gait, balance and stability tasks.

We also offer state-of-the-art multi-sensory rehabilitation treadmill systems, which can be used for clinical analysis and immersive physical therapy using virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR).

For example, the Computer Assisted Rehabilitation Environment (CAREN, pictured right) combines a motion platform with six degrees of freedom, an instrumented force plate dual belt treadmill, motion capture, high speed video, D-Flow software, virtual reality and surround sound, and uses game elements and immersive interactions to engage the subject within a real time feedback loop.

The CAREN is used by some of the UK’s leading facilities including the Defence and National Rehabilitation Centre (DNRC) and the Brain and Spinal Injury Centre (BASIC).

The Optima-MMS is the top-of-the-line force plate for all clinical gait analysis applications, and is available in sizes suitable for paediatric and adult patients.

Force platforms measure the ground reaction force as a subject stands on or walks across it, giving a full three-dimensional description of the force that acts on a human body during a movement. This can then be used to assess progress and performance.

Arm and hand

Feedback and results are provided by Augmented Performance Feedback, which is a shared software platform that encourages and motivates patients to achieve a higher number of repetitions. This will lead to better, quicker results, increased efficiency, and improved long-term outcomes.

The game-like software also provides automatic, ongoing assessment of motor functions and patients can easily track their progress, which helps them to take their training into their own hands and reach their therapy goals. These programs have been designed to train core movement patterns which are commonly used in daily life activities.

Paediatric rehabilitation

Many of our devices can be fitted with special harnesses, cuffs and orthoses that have been designed to accommodate children. These can stored and easily be swapped out by the therapist to offer therapy for adult and paediatric patients alike, or used exclusively for paediatric rehabilitation services.

Like adults, it is vital that paediatric patients receive intensive rehabilitation as early as possible to give them the best chance of recovery.

From gait and balance difficulties to upper limb impairment, we offer technology that can be integrated into a paediatric rehabilitation setting.

Body weight support

If your patients are unable to walk, stand or move unaided, we have a range of Body Weight Support systems – from vertical unloading for gait, balance and transfer training, to supporting the whole arm from shoulder to hand for upper limb therapy.

This allows rehabilitation to start early in a safe environment, and reduces the number of therapists required and physical strain on the therapist. Patients aren’t restricted by the limitations of conventional therapy, and can practice a wide variety of movements.

These devices are support-as-needed and can be completely tailored to each patient, allowing them to progress and achieve therapy goals.

Plantar pressure, sensors and force plates

Plantar pressure mapping data has become a crucial part of clinical gait assessments, and helps clinicians understand the complex interaction between the rearfoot, midfoot, and forefoot joints – particularly where there is pain and injury. Measurement tools quantify loading, motion, and footwear performance, and are also particularly critical for those with reduced foot sensation.

This data can then be used to predict functional outcomes with confidence, and validate treatment plans that result in improved patient outcomes.

Additionally, electromyography (EMG) and inertial measurement unit (IMU) sensors can be used for functional diagnoses and during motion and gait analysis. EMG can also be used as a control signal for prosthetic devices.

We are pleased to stock state-of-the-art EMG and IMUs for clinical gait analysis, including wireless, mini and waterproof systems. These are fully compatible with software provided free of charge to acquire up to 32 channels of EMG or IMU data simultaneously, view and replay inertial data, and export and report all analyses.

The Optima Medical Measurement System (Optima-MMS) by force plate market leader AMTI is the only certified Class 1m Medical Device in the European (EU) market and the new MHRA regulations in the UK.
