Robotic rehabilitation is a superior method to traditional physiotherapy because the movements are:
Adaptable to patient needs and patient
Robotic therapy provides a high level of cognitive engagement through interactive computer games.
Robotic rehab includes multiple training modes: passive, assistive and resistive.
Before the start of therapy, a comprehensive assessment of the patient is conducted and a complete quantitative report is created. This includes
Strength of movement
Quality of movement
Active and passive range of movement
Based on this report, the patient’s treatment plan is created. At the same time, patient’s progress is also monitored through computer-generated reports.
The robotic rehabilitation incorporates multiple virtual reality games such as catching the rain drops, flying a balloon, flying a helicopter. Even patients with impaired cognition find the robotic rehabilitation very engaging. This patient engagement is extremely important for neuroplasticity and motor recovery.
