ReoAmbulator ( AutoAmbulator)
Getting People Back on Their Feet
ambu1
ReoAmbulator (marketed in the US as the ‘AutoAmbulator’) is a high-end robotic gait training device that integrates Body Weight-Support Treadmill Training (BWSTT) with advanced robotics to help rehabilitate patients who experience problems with ambulation, balance, coordination, posture or stamina. ReoAmbulator was developed in cooperation with the HealthSouth network of rehabilitation hospitals. The device is installed in all of the network’s facilities and was enthusiastically embraced by both caregivers and patients.

AutoAmbulator are based on the idea that highly repetitive activities can help people who are disabled because of stroke or other neurological problems to establish new pathways in the brain or strengthen the old, damaged ones. It is the equivalent of finding your way around a roadblock. The robotic machines help patients perform an action, but gradually provide less and less assistance as the devices sense that patients are capable of doing more on their own.

Sophisticated software powers the ReoAmbulator through its integrated computer system, while sensors track numerous functions, continuously monitoring and adjusting power and speed according to each patient's physical requirements. Allow the patients to contribute to the movement but provide remaining force necessary for walking. Adjust the amount of weight bearing. Walking speed can be varied

The device was enthusiastically embraced by both caregivers and patients. The device’s synchronized robotic legs contribute to the movement, thereby allowing the patient to walk safely and create normal gait patterns. At the same time, multiple sensors perform continuous monitoring and adjustment of power and speed according to the patient’s physical requirements. An interactive display with multiple scene modes works to increase patient motivation and add variation to the repetitive training exercises.

Features


  • Robotic legs generate the power needed to safely simulate normal walking patterns

  • The amount of weight bearing a patient tolerates can be adjusted by therapists

  • Walking speed can be varied to patient’s ability and gradually increased to reflect normal walking

  • Sensors automatically stop the machine if an adverse event occurs

Benefits

  • Improvement of gait rehabilitation, balance and coordination
  • Intensive gait training therapy for adults and children with neurological disorders
  • Better patient engagement and motivation using the VR module
  • More efficient therapy by customizing session parameters
  • Better treatment outcome assessment by using patient motion tracking
