With the advancement in medical technology, the medical world has been quite successful in managing chronic diseases and in saving from fatal diseases.
For example, with ever-increasing knowledge and technology, patients are successfully revived from a stroke. Healthcare professionals save the patient’s life and effectively manage the stroke, but it doesn’t end here. العاب قمار روليت
With diseases like stroke, the residual
functionality of the affected patient needs rehabilitation. Despite the resultant
damage and disability, it has been proven that a human body and brain are
designed to adapt to the practiced movements and activities. This is where rehabilitation
therapies come into play.
ROBERT is a robotic rehabilitator that was designed and developed by Lasse
Thomsen, the founder of Life Science Robotics in Denmark.
goal behind an automated therapy is to decrease the burden and the strenuous efforts
that the medical staff has to put for a prolonged period until the patient is
up and about again.
‘This enables us to offer
not only a technologically smart solution but also one that provides effective
relief for nurses and therapists in their everyday work’ says the CTO of Life
Science Robotics, Rune Kristensen
bridged the gap between the increasing demand for the rehabilitative health of
the elderly and the shortage of the staff, at least in Denmark, Finland, and
Poland for now.
to the heaviest part of the body, upon which the weight of the entire body
relies, i.e., the lower extremities. It offers passive as well as active resistive
and assistive lower limb mobilization. Depending upon the patient’s functional strength,
the resistance level can be adjusted. In other words, ROBERT can be customized to meet the needs of
fixtures of the ROBERT to the patient’s limb, the healthcare professional adjusts
the resistance and the exercises accordingly. Once the ROBERT knows what the
healthcare professional wants, it can independently carry out the exercises or
movements for the next 30 to 40 minutes. Moreover, an attached monitor displays
a record of the number of cycles of movements/exercises the patient has
There are three modes from which the healthcare professional decides according to the patient’s functional capacity:
- Guided: In this mode, the ROBERT passively mobilizes the limb.
- Active: As the name suggests, in this mode, the professional can
adjust to the desired level of resistance, and the movements are made actively according
to the set level.
- Hybrid: In this mode, the ROBERT passively carries out a movement
which is followed by an active movement.
In a nutshell,
the ROBERT ensures effective rehabilitation by timely mobilization, prevents
muscle atrophy, lessens the staff burdens, provides prophylaxis against
thrombosis, and, last but not least, it aids in faster recovery of the patient
along with a substantial improvement in the patient’s functionality.
