MOTOLIFE is ideal for users affected by palsy or limited mobility of the legs or arms, caused by:
Prevent, reduce and lessen the consequences of the problems related to the loss or limit of mobility especially:
In the case there is no residual motorial activity for the lower limbs, MotoLife® allows to perform passive pedalling movement, in which the feet and the legs are pulled by the motor at a speed previously set (passive kinesitherapy). When used for the upper limbs, in the case there is no residual motorial activity, MotoLife® allows to move passively the arms in a cyclic way.
Whenever the user is capable of pedalling, even weakly, by using his or her own force, the motor offers assistance to start and maintain the motion at the pre-set speed (assisted movement). If the user is capable of going over the speed of the motor and keep a pedalling by himself or herself MotoLife® may make resistance and it can be adjusted in order to increase the work of the muscles and improve the cardiopulmonary efficiency (active kinesitherapy).Passing from one mode to the other can happen automatically: the on-board computer checks in real time and continuously the force exerted on the pedals or on the handgrips by the user and it adjusts the level of assistance o resistance of the motor accordingly.
The software is multi-user type, and it allows to create, modify and delete different accounts. The settings are stored for each user in a database and they can be recalled when a given account is selected. The account stores the settings of the therapy, both for legs and arms. It also keeps a record of all the training sessions for each account.
By inserting a USB memory drive in the port on the right of the display it is possible to export the data in a text file, in comma separated values (CSV). Such information can be easily imported into an excel file to study the results.
Play-therapy: three different play-therapies with a biofeedback are present to improve the involvement of the patient, increasing his or her commitment, during the treatment.
The game related to the pedalling speed shows a ride along a city street. According to the speed of the pedalling the ride becomes faster or slower.
The first game related to symmetry requires balancing a tray and allows the user to be directly involved in the improvement of the balance between both limbs.
The second game is related to the symmetry and it is represented by two colored bars. It improves the involvement of the patient to improve the symmetry of the pedalling.
Our R&D department is constantly committed to also improve the software of our Motolife® product according to specific needs of hospitals and centers where the units are at work.
