Mobilizing one’s own body strength
Physical activity is an inherent part of current cancer therapy. From a medical point of view, patients should begin their movement therapy already at an early stage because targeted movement can help counteract physical and psychical side effects of chemo- or anti-hormonal therapy. Moreover, regular movement enforces the immune system naturally, builds up the skeletal muscles and decreases symptoms such as fatigue (chronic exhaustion), insomnia and depression.
With the MOTOmed movement therapy, cancer patients can mobilize their own body strength both after surgery and alongside chemo or radiation therapy. Due to the three different training modes: with motor, motor-supported and active, the training effort can be adapted perfectly to the user’s condition. Especially with fatigue syndrome (chronic exhaustion), the opportunity to exercise passively favors regular training sessions which are necessary for a successful movement therapy. Training games and, according to the model, also relaxing film sequences from nature encourage movement and create diversified training sessions.
The MOTOmed movement therapy offers comfortable opportunities for regular movement in daily life and supports cancer patients after chemo or radiation therapy.
