BimeoProTherapy

 

Overview

Bimeo PRO is designed to make therapy effective and motivating for patients and facilitating for therapists. Therapy with Bimeo goes one step beyond state-of-the-art methods in rehabilitation medicine. The patient is encouraged to use the more affected arm, supported by the movement of the less affected arm. The support is supervised and optimized through automatic training task adaptation. Training is augmented with activity-of-daily-living type exercises and cognitive tasks, while specific tasks are designed for objective motor function assessment. Physicians can easily track progress of the patient and adjust training difficulty according to the patient’s needs. Training is therefore more effective and the rehabilitation process is shorter.

 

Therapy modes

Therapy with Bimeo PRO offers wide variety of modes. Different therapy modes require different therapeutic attachments. With a help of a quick release mechanism attachments can be easily exchanged and a new therapy can be started simply by a few clicks in a simple user interface.

Therapy tasks

Therapy tasks of the Bimeo PRO system are comprised of two groups. The first group are assessment task. Aim of the first group is to encourage the patient to perform simple isolated movements as accurate as possible. Algorithms of the Bimeo PRO system accurately and objectively assess each patient’s movement. Assessment scores for each session are stored into a database. This way the physician or therapist can objectively monitor progress of each patient.

The second group are therapy tasks. Patients are challenged with more complex movements which imitate movements of activities-of-daily-living, focus on cognitive tasks and include fun games. Several parameters and points scored during these tasks are also stored in the data base.

Data acquired by sensors and specific tasks enable an objective insight into the patients state and progress.

 

Wide variety of therapy options

Therapists can prescribe wide variety of therapy options: arm-weight (un)supported isotonic/isometric bimanual and unimanual, isolated exercise of individual arm joints and active assisted movement controlled by the therapist.

 

Ease of use

Bimeo is simple and intuitive. The therapist adjusts therapy settings with just a few clicks on a straightforward user interface. The settings are stored and later retrieved when starting a new therapy session.

 

Short setup time

The whole setup and initialization process takes just a minute without disturbing the patient.

 

Reduced therapy costs

A single therapist can simultaneously assist multiple patients exercising with Bimeo.

  

Evidence based rehabilitation

Patients benefit from clinically validated rehabilitation therapy.

 

No risk of injury

The system consists of lightweight battery-powered sensing units without actuators, thus completely eliminating the risk of injury to the patient or therapist.
