New knee brace module delivers greater safety and support

Reha Technology : 01 November, 2012  (New Product)
Reha Technology is introducing an additional module for the advanced robot-assisted G-EO System that offers a more efficient neurorehabilitation therapy unit for patients with little knee control.


The device will also make it less exhausting for the therapist.



With end-effector devices such as the G-EO System of Reha Technology, patients with little or non-existent control of their lower extremities tend to set themselves into the sling. As a consequence, they no longer correctly complete the physiological sequence of movements that is essential for the therapy. Up to now the therapist took over the supporting function of guiding the knees. With the use of the knee brace, the therapist can now concentrate on the therapy or on the needs of the patient even for severe patient cases, and support and motivate them more.



The knee brace was especially developed for SCI patients (spinal cord injury). The brace is used when walking on a level floor and can be retrofitted for every version of the G-EO System. The knee brace is simple to install and can be adjusted to the respective patient within a  short time.



Reha Technology will introduce the knee brace to the world market at MEDICA 2012 from 14 to 17 November 2012 in Dusseldorf, Germany (stand:5L39).
