The Armeo Spring is designed for patients with impairments of hand and arm function. The combination with a computer game makes the therapy more motivating than conventional methods.

The Lokomat is a robot-supported gait orthosis. Computer-controlled electric motors stimulate and support walking on the treadmill. Sensors determine the use of force during the running movement.

With the Erigo, an adjustable tilting table, neurologically critically ill patients can be vertically positioned. The device also performs leg movements, which improves circulation and muscle function.
