Evidence-Based Neurorehabilitation Technology
The InMotion WRIST™ is capable of lifting even a severely impaired neurologic patient’s hand against gravity, overcoming most forms of hypertonicity.
The InMotion WRIST™ accommodates the range of motion of a normal wrist in everyday tasks.
Clinicians may use the InMotion WRIST™ as a stand-alone treatment option, or it may be used in addition to the InMotion ARM™ to offer progressive modular robotic neurorehabilitation. It may also be used to carry patients to qualify for CIMT.
Independent clinical trials have shown progressive, modular robotic neurorehabilitation to be more effective at reducing impairment and improving function1 even in severely impaired chronic patients.
Overview of a typical InMotion WRIST™ robotic therapy session:
- Therapist selects appropriate treatment protocol
- Robot prompts patient to initiate movement
- Patient initiates or attempts movement
- Robot senses patient movement and provides continuous adaptive real-time
assist-as-needed™ support ensuring movement is completed successfully
- Robot provides performance feedback to both patient and therapist
- Therapist continues to engage patient and objectively plans next steps
