The top model with 6 different gait activities for everyday and performance-oriented therapy.
Everything you need to know about the features and benefits of the G-EO Model S gait trainer: Endeffector-based by Reha Technology need to know.
Reha Technology's G-EO systems revolutionize the way therapists work by reducing physical strain and supporting a wide range of patients with limited mobility. Using the end effector principle, they enable personalized therapy with intelligent robotic technology that allows therapists to tailor the intensity of treatment to individual patient needs. Robot-assisted gait therapy has proven to be an extremely effective method in the rehabilitation of patients with neurological and orthopedic disorders. Through collaborations with leading hospitals and universities, significant technological advances have been made in recent years, making robotic-assisted therapy an indispensable component of neurological rehabilitation. Numerous studies demonstrate the clinical efficacy of end-effector-based gait therapy and confirm its superiority compared to conventional therapy.
Neurological rehabilitation must begin individually and at the right intensity for the individual patient. For a sustainably successful course of therapy, it is important to perform a movement with a high number of repetitions in a task-specific and physiologically correct manner. And it is precisely for this targeted, early and intensive therapy that the G-EO of Reha Technology plays a key role.
The robot-assisted gait trainer simplifies and enhances both the course of therapy for the therapist and the entire therapy process. The patient, the therapist, and the entire therapy environment benefit equally.
The physical strain on the therapist is minimized by the use of robot-assisted gait therapy. The therapist can focus more precisely and purposefully on the patient and his therapy. With this upgrading of the therapy, there is more time for patient observation and information, which leads to an important positive increase of the intrinsic as well as extrinsic motivation of the patient and therapist.
The physiological gait pattern of the G-EOS supports the patient with a simulation of walking on level ground, inclined walking and climbing stairs. With the G-EOS patients are prepared intensively and performance-oriented with high, reproducible repetitions for everyday, demanding challenges, such as climbing stairs, in an optimal and controlled manner.
Stair climbing significantly improves and strengthens a patient's gait quality.
With the G-EOS the therapist has the technical support to prepare a patient for stair climbing in a focused way. Stair climbing stimulates physiological muscle activation of the legs and results in significantly improved walking ability. Increased cardiovascular activation, stimulation of weight transfer, and increase in strength requirements are important aspects of stair climbing.
For the therapist, the G-EO gait trainer with the end effector principle represents a considerable facilitation of work. Guidance of the affected limb requires only distal fixation, in this case the feet. Complicated adjustment and adaptation steps are eliminated and the average set-up time for a patient is reduced to around five minutes. In device-based gait rehabilitation, this value represents an essential factor for an efficient therapy process.
The physical strain on the therapist is significantly reduced and therapy time can be used more effectively on and with the patient. This makes it possible to integrate other forms of therapy such as speech therapy or cognitive therapy.
Body position control is another important element in successful and sustainable neurological gait rehabilitation. The G-EO Gait trainer has mechanical trunk and hip control on three levels -. frontal, transversal and sagittal. The therapist can thus control the patient's body position, as well as the natural knee and hip extension. The movement of the hips and torso can also be continuously adjusted to the patient in an optimal way via the graphical user interface and without interrupting the therapy.
The diverse, everyday gait activities of the G-EOS, from walking on level ground to incline walking and climbing up and down stairs in different activity modes - passive, active or active-assistive - support a very broad patient population and allow individualized gait therapy in the different indications.
The function-related modularity of the G-EOSenables a flexible and holistic therapy adapted to the patient's walking ability.
The motion segmentation function allows the therapist to further extract specific gait movements from the "Initial Contact" via "Midstance" until the "Terminal Swing" train individually and with regard to the clinical patient picture in terms of quality and performance.
The G-EOS supports the patient with a simulation of a physiological gait pattern and muscle activation. Various gait adjustment options take place without interruption of therapy and allow individualization of the gait pattern based on the patient's clinical picture.
The footplates of the G-EOS are equipped with intelligent pressure sensors and show the patient and therapist where and how much force is applied via the distal fixation, i.e. the foot, to initiate movement. This intelligence supports and ensures high gait quality and gait performance.
These and many other important data about the gait therapy of each individual patient can be stored by the therapist in personal patient profiles. This ensures a high level of reproducible and controllable rehabilitation in follow-up therapies.
The knee brace provides stable guidance of the knee and hip joint. For patients with no or severely limited knee control (FAC 0 to 1), the mechanical knee brace is an ideal aid for goal-oriented gait therapy.
The knee brace guides the patient to a physiologically correct gait pattern. The therapist can thus focus on other important therapy priorities, such as hip and trunk control of his patient.
Functional electrical stimulation (FES) can be excellently combined and synchronized with robot-assisted gait therapy. Affected muscle groups can be addressed at the right time during gait therapy and their activation can be supported. The patient benefits from a better therapy outcome.
