Guiding the Initial Phases of Arm and
Hand Function Recovery
The world’s first robotic arm exoskeleton for integrated arm and hand therapy for severely impaired patients.
Limitations of Conventional Arm and
Conventional Tilt Table Training
• Severity prevents practice
• Difficult to keep patients motivated
• Limited number of repetitions
• Therapy limited by availability of therapists
• Unclear feedback regarding progress and performance
• Changing needs of patients
Advantages of ArmeoPower Therapy
Highly Intensive Early Arm Rehabilitation
The ArmeoPower has been specifically designed for arm and hand therapy in an early stage of rehabilitation.
The device enables even patients with severe movement impairments to perform exercises with a high number of repetitions (high intensity), which is paramount for relearning motor function.
Assist-As-Needed Movement Guidance
The ArmeoPower uses sensors and intelligent algorithms to recognize when the patient is not able to carry out a movement and assists the patient’s arm as much as needed to successfully reach the goal of the exercise.
It automatically adapts the arm movement guidance to the individual needs and changing abilities of each patient–from full movement guidance for patients with very little activity to no support at all for more advanced patients. This assist-as-needed movement guidance enables and motivates patients to participate actively in their training, which effectively supports motor relearning.
Arm Weight Support in an Extensive 3D Workspace
The ArmeoPower is the world’s first commercially available robotic exoskeleton for upper extremity rehabilitation. The six actuated degrees of freedom allow training in an extensive 3D workspace.
This enables patients to practice the movements important for their therapy progress and daily life. The ArmeoPower supports 1D (joint-specific), 2D and 3D movements.
An extensive library of game-like Augmented Performance Feedback exercises has been designed to train core movement patterns that are commonly used in activities of daily living.
Increased Therapy Efficiency
The Armeo devices improve therapy efficiency by reducing the therapist’s physical effort and the need for continuous therapeutic guidance.
Moreover, Armeo devices enable therapists to make better use of their clinical know-how and expertise, by focusing on the optimal therapy planning, instead of manually delivering many repetitions.
The ArmeoPower precisely records how patients perform during their therapy sessions and how much support they need.
Standardized Assessment Tools evaluate the sensor and motor data to investigate specific patient function including movement ranges and forces. The results can be used to analyze and document the patient’s state and therapy progress in order to further optimize therapy. Results can then be shared with the patient and other clinicians.
Part of a Modular Therapy Concept
The ArmeoPower is part of the unique and modular Armeo Therapy Concept, the world’s first upper extremity concept that covers the whole “Continuum of Rehabilitation” throughout a range of devices, each developed for a specific stage of rehabilitation–from acute rehabilitation to long-term recovery.
Hand Function Training (Optional)
Enables severely impaired patients to relearn hand opening and closing.
Enables patients to train reaching and grasping with assist-as-needed support from shoulders to fingers.
Motivates patients towards high effort with Augmented Performance Feedback exercises for hand function training.
