Improved dialysis effectivity
With the motorized movement therapy device MOTOmed letto2 dialysis patients benefit from the available time during dialysis. Movement during dialysis can increase “dialysis effectivity”, decrease the amount of toxicants in the blood and improve the blood test results of dialysis patients.
The dialysis patient can train with own muscle power or improve his general condition (strength and endurance) with motor support. Due to the help of the motor and the intelligent active/passive detection of the MOTOmed letto2 even weaker patients or patients with below knee amputations benefit from MOTOmed movement therapy. This movement, which resembles cycling, can help to stabilize the heart, circulation, immune system and blood pressure situation. Complications such as fainting, shocks and unconsciousness occur less frequently during dialysis.
