Children with spastic paralysis –
new therapy method promises success!
The new motorized movement therapy machine MOTOmed gracile now offers physically handicapped children new therapy opportunities. It is equipped with a motor and provides software specifically designed for children with paralysis and spasticity.
Therewith disabled children can have their legs (or arms/upper body) moved daily independently or with the help of a parent. This can be done from a regular chair or a wheelchair. The harmonic, rhythmic rotation of the specific drive allows loosening up of the muscles and a reduction of spasticity. Joints, tendons and ligaments can be kept flexible. Particularly efficient is the MOTOmed Therapy if the child can apply existing residual muscle strength by pedaling harmonically with the help of the “ServoCycling” function like when riding a bicycle.
More information about the pediatric machine MOTOmed gracile12 is available at the MEDICA 2005 in Düsseldorf / Germany (November 16 - 19, 2005) at booth C48, hall 4 of the company RECK-Technik GmbH & Co. KG or at www.motomed.com.
