To live the natural urge to move is the greatest need for children and adolescents. With the MOTOmed loop kidz even children with disabilities can fulfill this desire whether from chair, seat shell or wheelchair. Active, assistive or passive. Depending on possibility and individual condition. The passive MOTOmed Movement can lead to a reduction in muscle tone in spasticity. Additionally, it prevents the shortening of muscles and the occurrence of contractures. At the same time the motor-assisted movement with the MOTOmed enables an active training - even with residual muscle strength.
Excellent digital intelligence and intuitive usability for kids
The MOTOmed loop impresses with its unique digital intelligence and its visual appearance. Almost all models can be upgraded in terms of equipment and functionality by means of an Upgrade Bundle. The MOTOmed loop also features its unique height adjustment, with which users can adjust the height of their MOTOmed models without tools. In addition, the high-quality material of the softly rounded surfaces of the MOTOmed next generation meets the high demands of hygiene management in facilities and clinics.
This also convinced the internationally renowned jury of the German Design Award 2019 that awarded the MOTOmed loop the "Special Mention" award.
In order to easily insert and fasten the feet into the safety foot shells you can position the pedals into the desired position by pushing the respective button on the control panel. This function also facilitates the removal of the feet from the foot shells at the end of each training session.
In case of spasticity, muscle cramping or any sort of movement blockage, the MOTOmed MovementProtector will stop the pedal movement. Special characteristic about this safety feature: The MovementProtector does not remain in a constant mode but adjusts to the changing muscle tension. Therefore, it is always optimally sensitive.
The SpasmControl with the automatic change in cycling direction helps loosening spasms according to the following therapeutic principle: A bending spasm is relieved by stretching, while a stretching spasm is eased by bending. The motor stops the pedal movement. Legs and arms are relieved and the direction of rotation is switched after a brief resting period. This process is repeated until the cramping is eased.
Similar to a power steered vehicle, the MOTOmed feature ServoCycling supports the user during active training. This function enables, even people with minimal muscle strength, to train actively without overstraining. The feature supports the maintenance and improvement of residual muscle strength.
The MOTOmed function SymmetryTraining is beneficial when aiming to targetedly train the weaker side of the body. Depending on the model, the depiction of this function may vary. In MOTOmed viva2 models, a two-scale diagram shows the user how much strength they exert with the left and the right body half. The MOTOmed muvi depicts this function with an animated figure. This way the user can targetly train the weaker side. SymmetryTraining also counteracts overstraining of healthy limbs.
The training data analysis will motivate you to engage in a regular MOTOmed movement. You can view all important training values (e.g. symmetry, performance, speed, distance and time) during the entire training session on the MOTOmed color display. With the completion of the training, the overview of all available 36 values is displayed. The MOTOmed viva2 stores the ''previous training '' along with other training data that is compiled in an overall analysis. These values can be retrieved any time.
