The Advanced Tech Devices Empowering Rehabilitation

H-Man

The H-Man is an upper-limb robotic device used for the rehabilitation of patients living with functional impairments in the upper arm. This is suitable for people with stroke, brain injury, Parkinson’s disease and more. A patient can select from a diverse offering of visually engaging games that cater to their specific needs, from coordination control to agility and strength training. Once a game is chosen, the patient will simply follow the prompts of the game using the H-Man handle. During this training, the H-Man assesses patient arm movement, automatically modifies training, and adapts applied forces to ensure optimal relearning in each session. Data is collected during the session for assessment by the patient and therapist. Patients typically perform 10 times more repetitions per session than during conventional therapy.* The H-Man is available at MetroRehab Hospital and Royal Rehab Private Hospital.

SMARTfit® Strike Pods

Our SMARTfit® Strike Pods are perfect for neurological rehabilitation via cognitive, motor and cardio training.

SMARTfit® Strike Pods can be placed anywhere — such as on shelves, walls or floors — to create vertical, horizontal or 360-degree playing environments. This flexibility allows therapists to create endless combinations of workout environments, each with unique ergonomic, physical and cognitive challenges. The Strike Pods are suited for people with neurological conditions such as stroke, brain injury, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease and other neurological conditions. The devices are at Royal Rehab Private Hospital and MetroRehab Hospital.

 

SMARTfit® Mini

Ideal for people with stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury and other neurological conditions, the SMARTfit® Mini focuses on concentrated cognitive and motor training. The combined cognitive and motor skills training is known to significantly speed up neuroplasticity in the brain, improving patients’ overall functional gain and mobility in the upper limbs. The station can be optimised with different game combinations to suit patients’ particular rehab needs. The SMARTfit® Mini is available now at Royal Rehab Private Hospital.

MediTouch 3D Tutor

The MediTouch 3D Tutor uses powerful rehabilitation software that gives patients with neurological and orthopaedic conditions such as stroke, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease and brain injury, an intensive and controlled exercise. The software gives instructions and feedback on movement that prevents the development of compensatory behaviour and ensures better performance of functional tasks for improved strength, mobility and function. This device also offers accurate real-time data on insights such as speed and range of motion. This supports therapists in their analysis and feedback, allowing patients to better understand their progress. The MediTouch 3D Tutor is available now at MetroRehab Hospital.

 

Ergo Trainer

The Ergo Trainer is used for gait training, motor function and strength rehabilitation — perfect for people with conditions such as stroke, Parkinson’s disease, brain injury, spinal cord injury and other neurological conditions. Therapists can adjust the support of the Ergo Trainer for patients and when paired with treadmills, step-machines and exercise bikes, the device provides greater freedom to confidently move. When used in conjunction with a treadmill, it is possible for patients with impaired walking ability to correct their gait. Recent studies show that with the Ergo Trainer, gait speed increased by 62 per cent in 6-minute walk tests.* Available now at MetroRehab Hospital.

Tyromotion Suite

A powerful new suite of devices from leading tech-device manufacturer Tyromotion is now available at Royal Rehab Private Hospital Day Rehab. The Myro, Pablo and Tymo products bring advanced robotics, sensor systems, virtual reality, and gamification functionality into rehabilitation — perfect for people who have experienced stroke, brain injury, spinal injury and musculoskeletal injuries. Offering highly intensive and targeted training, the devices allow clinicians to focus intensive rehabilitation on upper and lower extremities, and cognition and balance goals.
