Anti-gravity treadmill – AGT
The anti-gravity treadmill develops trusted, leading-edge rehab and training equipment using NASA differential air pressure technology. The anti-gravity treadmill technology empowers people to move in new ways and without pain – to recover mobility and enhance physical performance.
The anti-gravity treadmill integrates NASA differential air pressure technology, a precise air calibration system, and real-time information to change what’s possible in rehabilitation and training. Using a pressurized air chamber to uniformly reduce gravitational load and body weight in precise 1% increments, the anti-gravity treadmill enables patients and athletes to move unrestricted and pain-free – restoring and building muscle strength, range of motion, balance, function, and fitness. No other unweighting technology offers as much freedom, control, and versatility as the anti-gravity treadmill.
Lokomat walking robot
It is the most used robot for patients who are unable to walk / walking robot which is also called (motor robot). In this system, the patient exercises the walking, so that it is completely similar to the usual walking. It consists of a leg support system and two automatic feet that can be adjusted separately for each of the lower limbs. It works in conjunction with a special walking path and a system to support body weight.
Its goal is to enable the patient to progress in walking step-by-step. The device is connected to a computer that reads data and records the progress of the condition. Continuous repetition of motions stimulates walking reflections in the nervous system, especially in the motor centers of the spinal cord in the first stage the patient stands on the machine then he/she raised and tied securely and as soon as it is installed , the device begins to move automatically, in a coordinated manner and this robot is used in the treatment of nerve injuries.
Armeo Power- hand and shoulder robot
It is the method of neurological rehabilitation of the arm, it is used in the disorders of the upper limb (for example due to stroke) as a result of diseases of the central nervous system. It is a treatment method that restores the skill of mobility similar to that it was before the injury in addition to helping other rehabilitation methods. This robot is used in the treatment of neurological injuries.
Amadeo fingers robot
The Amadeo system is the only finger rehabilitation device that allows each finger to work independently or collectively including the thumb. Amadeo is a mechatronic rehabilitation device in the field of robotic rehabilitation. It is used in motion dysfunction in the far parts of the upper limb, this robot is used in the treatment of nerve injuries.
Arrigo foot robot
It is the key to early treatment of most neurological injuries as it is one of the safest devices for the patient.
The device works to support the movement of the feet until the patient reaches the best results. The device contributes to reducing muscle spasm and it also contributes to increasing blood flow. This robot is used in the treatment of nerve injuries and foot drop.
It is used with patients who suffer from neurological or orthopedic injuries and this type of treatment is useful as studies have proven that hydrotherapy contributes to restoring balance for the patient and it is used extensively with patients who have problems at the hip, hydrotherapy has great benefits to restore the function of the arms and relax the muscle.
Spinal decompression system
The spinal decompression system is used with patients who suffer from lower back pain and neck problems, especially the Spinal disc stenosis. The device works objectively, it targets the injured spine. The patient does not feel any pain while undergoing to the treatment. It is one of the most effective devices in dealing with the resulting pain from the herniated disk, as the vertical traction contributes to the expansion of the intervertebral distance, which leads to the release of the compressing nerve.
Rehabilitation therapy for patients with hemiplegia
The stroke occurs in the event that the oxygen supply to the brain is interrupted, which leads to damage to the cells of the injured area of it, thus it affects the motor or cognitive functions of the body belonging to that region.
The injured side of the body is determined by identifying stroke injured part in the brain, the start of the rehabilitation procedure should not be postponed except in very few cases such as cerebral hemorrhage persists or severe heart disorders that require the patient not to move at all.
Early and intensive physiotherapy, using advanced robotic devices for the leg, hand and fingers, in addition to the intensive treatment exercises implemented by specialists in the field of physiotherapy and rehabilitation, all of which help the patient to return to his life gradually, naturally, or closer to normal.
It is a disease that often leads to exhaustion, as the body’s immune system damages the membrane surrounding the nerves. This damage or erosion of the membrane negatively affects the communication process between the brain and the rest of the body parts. Ultimately, the nerves themselves may be damaged.
The symptoms of multiple sclerosis are different and varied, depending on the injured nerves and the severity of the injury. In difficult cases, multiple sclerosis patients lose the ability to walk or speak sometimes, it is difficult to diagnose the disease in its early stages, because symptoms often appear and then disappear, and may disappear for several months.
Multiple sclerosis therapy
Multiple sclerosis therapy is concentrated in general on the resistance (treatment) of autoimmune reaction and control of symptoms, it is divided into two parts:
The drugs that are common and known to treat to this disease are many, the most important of which are Corticosteroids, which is the most prevalent treatment for multiple sclerosis, as it traps and reduces inflammation, which usually intensifies in seizures.
The treatment aims to control the symptoms associated with the disease and stop its development, where the patient is taught and trained about exercises for stretching and strengthening, and the patient is instructed on how to use devices that can facilitate daily life.
Treatment of speech problems and swallowing difficulties therapy
It is a science that focuses on assessment and rehabilitation for patients suffer from speech, voice and swallowing disorders.
In the rehabilitation center, the patients who have previously suffered from stroke, neurological diseases or traumatic brain injuries, genetic or acquired syndromes, or have previously undergone laryngectomy, tracheostomy, etc., are included in the speech therapy and rehabilitation program for swallowing difficulties.
- Communication disorders – speech – aphasia, inability to perform, and slurred speech.
- Speech disorders, stuttering and mumbling
- Voice disorders, voice dysfunction and lack of it.
- Chewing disorders – swallowing (dysphagia).
