We personally look on the emergence of exoskeleton technology in rehabilitation as a great advance but - as we are fond of saying at Anatomical Concepts - there are no perfect products. We realise that this technology is in it's infancy, it's too expensive for the majority and some clinicians doubt that it is cost-effective compared with other rehabilitation systems.Read More
Some 30% of stroke survivors suffer from severe upper limb paresis with a non-functioning hand and the outcomes for rehab, at least in the research literature, seem to be poor. The RehaDigit produces controlled passive movements of paralysed fingers with the aim of allowing therapists to concentrate on more complicated tasks whilst allowing more intensive therapy. The device moves the four fingers over a physiological range of movement whilst adding a controlled vibration to activate the sensorimotor system.Read More
The RehaDigit from Hasomed is simple, compact device that aims to impact on sensory and motor function of the hand. The therapist can set the massage action to include vibration which can effectively relax tight finger and hand structures following a stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury or more. Easy to setup, safe to use and clinically effective.Read More
Denervated muscles require a different electrotherapy protocol to "conventional" FES but research has shown that technology such as the Stimulette Den2x from Dr Schuhfried can reverse the loss of tissue bulk and quality that results from a denervation injury. Restoring tissue in this way can reduce the risk of pressure sores, improve circulation and dramatically improve appearance.Read More
Lack of arm movement can be very debilitating following a stroke. Shoulder pain and an arm that feels incredibly heavy is obviously a real barrier to recovery.
The Gloreha Dynamic Arm support is a nicely engineered device that provides an adjustable amount of lift to the users affected arm.Read More
The SEM Glove drew a lot of attention at the Neurological Rehab Show at the ExCel this week. It's robotic technology but with some features never seen before.
The SEM Glove is a robotic medical device that adds power and endurance to people with a weak grip or impaired hand function. Its proving valuable to many people with a neurological condition or recovering from hand trauma. But what about it's economic impact and effect on quality of life?Read More
We are delighted to introduce the SEM Glove to the UK and Republic of Ireland market from January 2015. The SEM Glove is conceived and produced by Bioservo Technologies AB in Stockholm., Sweden. The product was recently reviewed on a special programme of Channel 5's 'The Gadget Show' last month and we're really excited to be able to offer this new technology to our clients.Read More
