Mobility and walking ability
In rehabilitation of geriatric patients, the regeneration of mobility, walking ability and independence is most important.
With MOTOmed movement therapy you can conduct an active movement, motor-supported or a passive movement training. Especially the active-passive change can stimulate strength and endurance with weaker patients. The cyclic MOTOmed movement additionally stabilizes cardiovascular system and circulation. Your patients move safely from chair, wheelchair or nursing bed, which reduces the risk of overstraining, falling or luxation.
"Without wanting to downgrade the advantages of conventional therapy, result analysis shows that MOTOmed movement therapy, in its form as a sport therapeutic application, is an effective and efficient additional therapy thanks to its functional impact. In this characteristic, MOTOmed Movement Therapy meets the demand for rehabilitation before care. "
