Diabetes Type 2
Improving insulin sensitivity
Sports that puts the emphasis on endurance and that engages the whole body is perfect for diabetics because physical activity induces the body to burn glucose. Diabetics can make use of this characteristic. The MOTOmed muvi is perfect here as it enables simultaneous leg and arm training. At the same time muscle cells are stimulated during active training with the MOTOmed, the amount of insulin receptors are increased and their effectivity improved. In addition, endogenous mitochondria develop, that burn the glucose in the blood faster and more effectively. Thus, insulin activity increases and the blood glucose level decreases.
Through regular training sessions with the MOTOmed movement therapy devices, diabetics are able to counteract stroke or heart attacks.
MOTOmed Movement Therapy
MOTOmed Movement Therapy was developed for people with movement restrictions and complements physical, ergo and sports therapy measures. Users can train while seated in a wheelchair or from a chair.
In Germany, the device-based movement therapy with the MOTOmed is recognized as an aid for many indications by the statutory health insurance. It is worthwhile to inform yourself!
The effortless motor driven movement is ideal for the regulation of muscle tone, loosening stiff muscles and for early mobilization after long rests. Passive training stimulates blood circulation, digestion and joint flexibility.
In motor-supported movement therapy, the function MOTOmed ServoCycling enables easy transition from passive to active training. A motor-supported movement stimulates strength and endurance even with minimal muscle strength.
An active training with own muscle power against finely adjustable resistance levels strengthens leg, arm and upper body muscles and stimulates the cardio-vascular system.
Achieving best therapy goals through interval training
Alternating phases of strain and recreation (intervals) through active and passive training give a higher training stimulus which leads to a better therapy success.
- Promote walking
- Reduce the consequences of lack of movement
- Reduce spasticity
- Activate residual muscle strength
- Strengthen the psyche and well-being
- Counteract fatigue
