The novel coronavirus has upended life as we knew it. Due to social distancing rules, conventional physical rehabilitation methods became difficult to perform in an effective manner. With our therapy assisting systems both you and your patient are safe and you can ensure an even more effective training outcome.
«Learning to walk by walking» – the mantra of Prof. Dr. S. Hesse, a pionieer in gait therapy, is still valid and scientifically supported by many studies with the Gait Trainer GT I. The Gait Trainer GT II is based on the GT I and now offers a convenient user interface, a comfortable and easy-to-use electric lifter and a modern, yet cost effective gait training based on the well proven end-effector principle.
The FLOAT offers an ideal flexible and multidirectional overground gait and balance training. Adjustable body weight support and a full 3-dimensional freedom to exercise with tailored training programs for the patient along with the safety of fall prevention helps a patient to train at higher intensity and thus regain gait and balance capabilities faster after stroke or incomplete paraplegia.
«Learning to walk by walking» – following the mantra of Prof. Dr. S. Hesse we offer a comprehensive gait studio comprising the next generation of the GT I and the unique 3-dimensional overground gait training system The FLOAT as well as a treadmill, all with adjustable BWS. The goal is to improve the ability of patients to relearn walking by repetitive and intensive training with flexible training programs in a safe environment.
Our portfolio offers a scientifically proven set of arm and hand therapy devices that assist therapists in the treatment of severely to moderately affected patients. Beside the Reha-Slide and Reha-Slide Duo, we also offer a set of Evaluation Methods for upper extremity rehabilitation.
The library offers studies, publications and articles about our devices. The gait and arm studio devices are based on broad based clinical studies to prove the benefits of our therapy assisting devices. Many of these studies can be found as multi-center studies in the Cochrane Library.
Prof. Dr. Stefan Hesse and his team developed pioneering electromechanical and robotic devices to assist therapists in helping patients in their rehabilitation after stroke or incomplete paraplegia. Devices like the Gait Trainer GT I or the arm trainer Reha-Slide as well as the Reha-Slide Duo have been the first devices on the market. The unique new overground gait training system The FLOAT, developed in close collaboration with the Balgrist in Zurich, as well as the updates Gait Trainer GTII complete the comprehensive offering of therapy assisting devices for lower extremities to help increase therapy intensity with practical and easy-to-use devices for therapists and patients.
