MotoLife® is born with the objective of improving the lifestyle quality, the health state and the psycho-physical wellbeing of all the people who have a physical or neurological impairment of the lower and upper limbs. Therefore, it is of great help for the functional recovery or for the prevention and revert of the complications strictly related to the problems of mobility impairment and immobility.
It is adequate for home use or in clinics, medical Studios or at therapy centers for exercising the upper and lower limbs.
Benefits of the movement therapy with the use of a motorized cycle-ergometer are widely treated in several international papers. They deal mainly with the prevention or revert of the complications which are directly linked to the lack of movement and mobility and especially with the reduction of muscle spasticity, the revert of muscle atrophy caused by immobility, the increase of specific peripheral circulation and the improvement or maintenance of the joint mobility and the slow-down of the clinical picture of neurological pathologies such as a stroke, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, etc.
Knee, hip and ankle CPM (Continuous Passive Motion) devices, used during the first phase of rehabilitation to aid in recovery after joint surgery. The purpose of this therapy is the restoration of range of motion in patients with pathologies both surgically treated such as synovectomy, arthroscopic surgery for calcific tendonitis, acromioplasty, tenotomy, and non surgically treated such as brachial plexus lesions, humerus fractures, tendinopathies, arthritis.
Our FISIOTEK devices let the specific joint move through a an extended period of time, gradually moving the affected joint through a prescribed arc of motion. The goals of this rehabilitation are control post-operative pain, reduce inflammation, and protect the healing repair or tissue.
The FISIOTEK 3000 equipment line is operated by a direct-current motor controlled by a micro-card. Functions programmable via a fixed keyboard. A movable keyboard allows patients to start and stop movement by pressing the relevant keys. The limb positioning area is on top the device and is adjustable to the size of the patient's limb. The adjustment depends on the limb length, as measured from the greater trochanter to the malleolus.
