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).

MOTOmed Movement Therapy
MOTOmed Movement Therapy was developed for people with movement restrictions and complements physical, ergo and sports therapy measures. Patients in supine position use MOTOmed from a nursing bed or therapy couch.
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
- Activate residual muscle strength
- Strengthen the psyche and well-being
- Counteract fatigue
