Supporting therapy and care staff
MOTOmed movement is an on-device therapy form similar to normal cycling, which allows for passive, motor-supported and active movements. Even with minimal muscle strength, users can do an efficient active training during alternating active-passive training. The MOTOmed movement therapy devices are applied worldwide in neurological, orthopedic and cardiac rehabilitation as well as in geriatrics. Scientific studies underlined the benefits of MOTOmed movement therapy as part of daily therapy or as self-conducted „home-based" movement therapy.
All MOTOmed models are motor-supported and enable a cyclic movement of legs and arm/ upper body. The movement therapy can be conducted out of a chair, wheelchair or nursing bed.
The MOTOmed movement therapy is beneficial for the therapy spectrum of every facility. It supports therapy and care staff, improves time management, reduces therapy costs, increases therapy efficiency and convinces with quality, usability and design.
More than 30 years of leadership in the field of motor driven movement therapy, lead RECK medical devices to their unique competence. You can rely on our know-how when selecting one of our motor-driven movement therapy devices.
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. 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
- Reduce spasticity
- Activate residual muscle strength
