InMotion Robots for Shoulder, Elbow and Wrist
Following a neurological injury, patients and their families continually seek the latest and most effective rehabilitation methods for regaining strength and movement. Increasingly, this search leads to robot-assisted therapy, an innovative solution that delivers clinically-proven results.
More than a decade of research at MIT and leading hospitals worldwide shows how robot-assisted therapy can help improve strength, coordination and functional movement. These long-lasting benefits are observed both in patients whose injuries occurred recently and in those whose injury occurred many years ago.
InMotion Robots, invented by leading scientists at MIT, use purposeful and engaging computer games to guide a patient through clinician-selected exercises, starting with gentle assisted movement and becoming progressively more challenging. The robots assist patients to significantly increase their exercise repetitions, more so than traditional therapy, resulting in improved performance and recovery.
Persons with arm weakness and decreased function, specifically in the shoulder, elbow and/or wrist and hand, have proven to be excellent candidates to use the InMotion Robots. Specially-trained therapists utilize the interactive robot to address muscle weakness that is caused by stroke, brain injury, multiple sclerosis or spinal cord injury.
