Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) Cycle

The RT 300 FES Cycle is an upper and lower extremity cycle that utilizes electrical stimulation to contract paralyzed muscles to promote neuromuscular recovery, improve cardiovascular endurance, and muscle girth.

Lokomat

The Lokomat is a robotic assisted body weight supported treadmill training system that allows individuals with varies neurological disabilities to walk with pre programmed physiological gait parameters.

Rewalk

The ReWalk is a robotic exoskeleton that uses motorized legs to power hip and knee movement.  It allows for locomotion on land with the use of crutches at speeds up to 1.3 mph.

TheraStride

The Therastride is a manual body weight supported treadmill training system that allows individuals with paralysis to walk with body weight support while preserving normal kinematics of gait.

Virtual Reality

Virtual Reality is currently one of the newest technologies with plenty of ongoing research to try and figure out if it can stimulate social interactions, natural events, and multimodal sensory stimuli while promoting functional movements

XCITE

The Xcite system uses functional electrical stimulation to facilitate over 40 task specific, strengthening, and gross motor training activities. By using sequenced stimulation pattern to perform each functional activity, the patient has opportunity to practice real life tasks and develop the strength and coordination.
