Movement Therapy For Parkinson'S Patients

The MOTOmed loop Parkinson enables quick, motor-assisted rotations up to 90 revolutions per minute (Forced Exercise). The quick, guided movements help to reduce tremor, improve the walking ability and help to conduct daily movements purposefully. The MOTOmed loop Parkinson can be upgraded.

Excellent Digital Intelligence And Intuitive Usability

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, as well as the quick and easy switch from arm to leg training. 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.

Forced Exercise

With the therapeutic movement concept “forced exercise”, the lower extremities of Parkinson’s patients get moved noticeably faster than the symptoms of their disease would normally allow them to do. A group of researchers (Ridgel et al., 2009) from the US found out that movement speeds of up to 90 rpm help to improve Parkinson-related symptoms. Moreover, a significant improvement of the finger’s fine motor skills about 30% could be measured.

Regular movement therapy in combination with medicine is the basis for recent Parkinson’s therapy. The MOTOmed parkinson models  have a software-controlled motor, which enables a movement training with high revolution speed. Parkinson patients can either train passively or actively with own muscle strength. Therapy sessions with the Parkinson can have positive effects on gait ability, balance, akinesia, fine motor skills and posture. Regular therapy training with the MOTOmed parkinson models  also helps to improve Parkinson-related symptoms such as tremor (trembling muscles) and rigor (stiff muscles).
