MOTOmed Movement Therapy
In order to easily insert and fasten the feet of your child into the safety foot shells you can position the pedals into a desired position with the push of a button on the control panel. This function eases the removal of out of the foot shells after the training has been completed.
The MOTOmed comes with two safety functions that facilitate a safe movement therapy solution especially to children with spastic paralysis: MOTOmed MovementProtector and SpasmControl
In case of spasticity, muscle cramping or any sort of movement blockage, the MOTOmed MovementProtector will stop the pedal movement. Special characteristic about this safety feature: The MovementProtector does not remain in a constant mode but adjusts to the changing muscle tension. Therefore, it is always optimally sensitive.
The SpasmControl with the automatic change in cycling direction helps loosening spasms according to the following therapeutic principle: A bending spasm is relieved by stretching, while a stretching spasm is eased by bending. The motor stops the pedal movement. Legs and arms are relieved and the direction of rotation is switched after a brief resting period. This process is repeated until the cramping is eased.
A movement similar to a power bicycle or a power steered vehicle is used to support the child during active training with the ServoCycling feature. This enables even those children with minimal muscle strength to train actively without much stain. The feature supports the maintenance and build-up of residual muscle strength.
This sophisticate active/passive recognition feature of the MOTOmed optimizes the motor assistance to suit the individual needs of your child. This support feature remains deactivated if the child is pedaling actively. As soon as your child slows down or stops pedaling, the MOTOmed recognizes this change in activity and the motor support is activated again.
As soon your child's muscles fatigue during active cycling, the motor automatically takes over the movement. The muscles relax during passive movement which improves blood circulation and optimizes oxygen and nutrients flow in those muscles. Most of the time, active training can continue with new energy after just a few minutes of passive movement and relaxing. Thus, longer training sessions are accomplished and better therapy success can be achieved.
The MOTOmed symmetry function presents the activity of each individual leg when "pushing". With the real time biofeedback display your child can continuously correct the input and target the "weak" side.
One-sided deficiencies such as hemiplegia can be treated specifically. The direct feedback from the big color display and the consistent repetitive training supports the relearning of movement patterns and can lead to speed up in recovery and therapy success.

Especially for children, the MOTOmax and TRAMPOLINEmax motivation programs are diversified, entertaining, and fun. You can increase the motivation factor and lengthen the training sessions by keeping the joy in movement.
The MOTOmax fame character is controlled by muscle impulse. Use your muscle strength to help MOTOmax reach the highest champion's podium by equally training the left and the right side of the body. Good cognitive (concentration) and coordinative performance is rewarded with a smile and "jumps for joy". The muscle strength that was applied and the pedal speed at which the pedals were moved, is reflected in the number of collected champion points.
Your child helps TRAMPOLINEmax to collect more stars. By steering the trampoline with your muscle input, your child can help MOTOmax jump up into the sky to collect more stars. Get rewarded with more stars for more muscle strength, endurance, pedal speed and a higher resistance level.
Choose your optimal training from 13 different therapy programs (standard without extra charge), depending on the medical condition of the child and the determined rehabilitation regimen. These programs have been created according to aspects of sport science and physical therapy. Other programs such as motivational, loosening, strengthening and endurance, and the coordination program are provided as an addition to the well-tried standard program.
The expert mode provides the additional possibility to create an individual therapy program. This can be conducted via the MOTOmed operating panel. This way, your very own therapy can be personalized.
The MOTOmed sam2 computer software (accessory) provides storage and analysis possibilities of the training results. You can also use this software to create and administer your individual therapy programs. These can be carried over from a MOTOmed chip card (accessory) to the operating panel.
The MOTOmed performance control regulates the resistance level up and down. The automatic regulation is adjusted according to the preset resistance intensity (in approx. watt).
If your child's physician or therapist have suggested a certain watt value for the training, this value can be entered as your child's target of your MOTOmed training. You can input this corresponding value into the performance control, and the MOTOmed will automatically regulate the resistance level. This way your child will reach a desired watt-output and you will not be under challenged or over exhausted.
The training data analysis will motivate you to engage in a regular MOTOmed movement. You can view all the important training values (e.g. symmetry, performance, speed, distance and time) during the entire training session on the MOTOmed color display.
With the completion of the training, the overview of all all the available 36 values is displayed. The MOTOmed viva2 stores the "previous training" along with other training data that is compiled in a overall analysis. These values can be retrieved at any time.
You can control the MOTOmed training with a chip card (accessory). Your individual therapy program is easily loaded and can be started with the push of a button. As an addition to that, all the training results can be saved to the chip card. The MOTOmed sam2 PC-program (accessory) allows for a quick and easy printout option.
