Rehabilitation Equipment

 

FISIOTEK 3000 Series

A range of models meets the operators’ various needs.
It ranges from the model that allows you to work on three joints – knee, ankle and hip – to the more specific model for the knee including the simple and compact instrument suitable for rental.

 

Distinctive elements:

  • Fisiotek 3000 is intended for use in rehabilitation to restore joint movement in both surgically and non-surgically treated medical conditions. It is therefore suitable for the needs of a considerable range of patients.
  • Its internal software has new programmable features that are useful and easy to use to customise therapy and promote the comfortable, gradual and effective recovery of joint mobility.
  • The line’s design makes use of high quality materials, such as aluminium and stainless steel to ensure greater dependability over time. The models’ linear frame and harmonic structure are pleasing to the patient and instil confidence.
  • The remote-control START & STOP functions and hand-held programmable keypad (optional) offer two ways to control the movement of the device: these two handsets are interchangeable and use the same connector.
  • Each model of the 3000 line is equipped with a Warm Up feature that can be used to warm the joint before therapy actually begins.
 

Treated pathologies:

  • Arthrotomy, arthroscopy
  • Treatment following mobilization
  • Surgical treatment of fractures
  • Reconstructive surgery
  • Endoprosthetic implants
  • Operations on soft tissue

Exercises to be performed with ROTA


The exercises that can be performed are suitable for patients with shoulder and elbow stiffness, impingement syndrome, and in pre- and post-surgery treatment; most of them are active exercises, but also passive or self-passive mobilisations and proprioceptive exercises. The names of the exercises refer to well-known movements and gestures, for easy identification by patients.

 

 

The active exercises can be either active-assisted or resisted exercises, either general or selective.

 

The passive mobilisations are performed in a selective way and in one direction, following the principles of mild stretching (gradually assuming the stretch position, end of passive movement decided by the patient, holding the stretch position for a reasonable period of time, active return to rest position, repetition), to be associated with active control of the scapula; they can also be performed in a seated posture and are suited to the elderly; the mobilising force is supplied by the counterweight.

 

In self-passive mobilisation, the force to move the damaged limb is supplied by the controlateral limb; such mobilisations can be more vigorous and there are definite contraindications to performing them in some directions; as a rule, they should be included in a program for young people.

 

In the intended proprioceptive exercises, the patient’s only task is to recognize the actual position of the limb, which is slowly moved by the wheel; in order to carry out this task, the patient must become fully aware of his/her proprioceptive sensitivity. They are suited to achieve automatic muscle coordination of the humeral head stabilizers and also for motion recovery in conditions such as antalgic contracture, both post-traumatic and inflammatory.

In the end, the use of “ROTA” is intended for cooperative and normally intelligent patients, as is the case of adult patients with fractures or impingement syndrome. Brain-damaged patients with central lesions such as the hemiplegics can benefit from using this new device, though with significant restrictions (strengthening is not recommended, passive mobilisation not easy, while proprioceptive exercises are useful). The manual mainly describes the logic behind the exercises; we will describe the most frequent lesions and proceed to describe the possible exercises and, finally, the practical use of the device.

 

Finally, the wheel allows monitoring range of motion (ROM) recovery by providing quick and reliable assessment, based on comparison between previous and following measures. Being able to check the degree of joint motion reached in each repetition, the patient will feel motivated, encouraged and engaged in exercise.

screen1

Our ergometer line has been designed to be used at health-care facilities and physiotherapy wards. They are powered by a main supply, and they have a console to set speed, tilt as well for displaying some features such as heartbeat, duration of the exercise and the distance covered. It is worth highlighting the manual function, which allows the carer to have freedom of setting the parameters mentioned before in order to customize the type of exercise.

screen2

CARDIO / FAT BURNING
It is necessary to set beforehand all the patient’s data and the go on to set a kind of exercise in consideration of any of the following parameters, that is to say, time, distance, or calories.

screen3

Once the patient’s data have been set and the main work parameter has been chosen it is possible to set the warm up and cool down periods.

POSSIBLE TESTS

There are 10 types of tests for the patient already pre-set, and they are especially practicle for measuring different stress tests in accordance with the objective to be reached. For example, the CHR test (Constant Heart Rate) and the CWL test (Constant Work Level), which allow to carry out a type of exercise at a constant heart rate. Another test called RUNNER allows to carry out an exercise with an increasing load increasing the speed at 1 km/h per minute rate. The COOPER test allows to carry out an exercise to assess the maximum distance covered in 12 minutes. Furthermore, it is possible to set the test conditions manually by the carer. The additional test conditions are 8, and the procedure is the same as for registering a free profile.

screen5

PROFILES
There are 10 basic profiles available directly from the main menu. Furthermore, it is possible to set and memorize some exercises in a customized manual mode for a group or for single patients, since there are 100 free profiles. The saved profiled can be called out by using the arrows forward and backward and by choosing it on the touch-screen display.

screen7

GRAPHICS WHILE WORKING OUT
All parameters are displayed while carrying out an exercise with the aid of a graphic representation which shows specifically speed and tilt with green and orange columns while the heartbeat is displayed with a red zig-zag line. Two other dotted lines show minimum and maximum rate of heart pulse set for the patient treated corresponding to his or her personal data.

SOME SPECIAL FUNCTIONS
A group of icons can be always found while carrying out an exercise. They can be found in the upper-right part of the screen and they offer some specific functions, as for example, locking the work setting of the treadmill in manual version or with a given profile or test condition. Also for the call-out function of the patient’s personal data, which must be registered before the beginning of any exercise, the TV function to watch multimedia channels via internet or to play videos from a USB support, and last the RADIO function to listen to channels or play music from a USB support.

The software is multilingual and the measure unit for the distance covered can be set either in miles or in kilometers. Remote control from a pc or ECG is done via an RS 232 cable included. Upon request, a pc software for a control of the walk can be provided.
