Day after day the clinical reality proves that there is no greater effect on the success of a therapeutic measure than the influence by the patient´s own motivation. Promoting motivation in clinical rehabilitation means to accompany the patients on their road to independent success.
Especially for semi-paralyzed patients after a stroke it is important to find entry into rehabilitative measures at the earliest possible moment. With the Reha-Slide, we enable patients after stroke to fulfill independent repetitive exercises. And since acting in concert is the most effective guarantee for a therapeutic success, we pursue the approach of encouraging the paretic arm by the leadership of its intact counterpart. This way, we offer the patient an active training workload, which allows him to contribute consciously to his own rehabilitation process.
The Reha-Slide is designed for the stimulation of the three articulated parts of the human arm: the shoulder, the elbow and the wrist are involved in the course of therapy in equal measure. The integrated adjustable base of the device allows the setting of five constant angles, to ensure that the hands of the patient reach shoulder height during the therapy. The built-in resistance is freely adjustable and adapts to the individual abilities of your patients.
During therapy the patient reaches for both handles. Now the Reha-Slide allows the use of three motion axes.
1. Forward and backward for the training of elbow extension and flexion
2. Sideways for the training of shoulder abduction and adduction
3. Spinning for the training of wrist-flexion and extension
Additional to these isolated movements the Reha-Slide enables a combined movement. We believe in the greatest effectiveness through the interaction of intensity and motivation. Scientific findings show greater therapeutic success with the Reha-Slide than with comparable treatments.
1. trunk restraint harness
The especially adapted trunk restraint harness serves to prevent compensatory trunk movements, as they may occur during therapy. It is easily attachable to any normal chair, easy -care and made of durable synthetic material.
2. hand strap
The Reha-Stim supplied hand strap prevents a possible slipping of the paretic hand from the handle. Especially patients in the early phase of therapy will benefit from using the hand strap.
3. arm roll
The arm roll enables an even more comfortable use by supporting the paretic arm.
The Reha-Slide digitally connected:
In combination with the integrated cordless mouse our software provides your patients with different tasks to cope with. The control is carried out through bilateral movement of the handle bar. The movement related to the mouse is adapted by the computer. The Windows XP© compatible software includes a number of tasks and games. The difficulty is customizable to meet the needs of the patients.Traceable success is recorded by the integrated course documentation, also allowing a longer-term evaluation and assessment of therapeutic success.
