Improving joint flexibility

The motor driven movement therapy is a beneficial extension of the therapy spectrum within sports and movement therapy. The motor supported MOTOmed movement completes therapy measures during and after inpatient and ambulatory orthopedic rehabilitation. Especially passive movement and the motor supported active training against finely adjustable resistances enable movement with little load on the joints. Movement control and building up muscles constitute the key targets of MOTOmed Movement Therapy. 

In orthopedic rehabilitation, the MOTOmed movement can improve joint flexibility and strengthens the muscles around the joints, activates blood flow to the joints and relieves the ligaments. Through circular movement with changing pedal radius and a correct sitting position both the extent and range of movement can be adapted individually and increased continuously. 

The good usability of the MOTOmed movement therapy devices allows patients to conduct a mostly independent movement training which also constitutes a great benefit for the therapists’ time management. 

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!
