Increased dialysis effectiveness with MOTOmed Movement Therapy
Due to a significantly increased cardiovascular risk, dialysis patients have only 17 % to 39 % depending on their age of the life expectancy compared to the normal population. Scientific studies show that structured, performance-controlled training with MOTOmed Movement Therapy is feasible during dialysis. The increase in strength and endurance achieved and the consequent increase in performance can improve quality of life and reduce morbidity.
With the MOTOmed layson edition, dialysis patients can train their lower extremities individually and adapted to their personal performance from bed or from the dialysis couch. The patient‘s legs are safely supported. Even weak, multimorbid patients benefit from MOTOmed Movement Therapy in supine position thanks to the three therapy modes - passive (letting oneself be moved), assistive (motor-assisted) or active (using one‘s own muscle power).
