MOTOmed Movement Therapy
In order to easily insert and fasten the feet 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 the out of the foot shells after the training has been completed.
There are two safety functions of the MOTOmed that facilitate a regular and safe movement therapy, particularly to those patients 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.
The MOTOmed ServoCycling feature supports your active training, similar to a power bicycle or the power steering on a vehicle. Only minimal muscle strength is required to engage in active training. You can maintain and build up residual muscle strength in a gentle way.
This intelligent active / passive recognition feature of the MOTOmed optimizes the motor assistance to suit your individual needs. If the user is pedaling (actively) by himself this assistance stays inactive. As soon as the user slows down or stops pedaling, the MOTOmed recognizes this change in activity and the motor support is activated again.
As soon as your muscle fatigue during active cycling, the motor automatically takes over the movement. In the passive mode, the muscles are relaxed which improves the circulation of blood and the supply of oxygen and nutrients to the 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 the user 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.

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.
Steer the game character Max with your muscle strength. If you train your left and your right side equally, you can get the game figure Max to remain on the highest stage of the "winner's podium". For a positive cognitive (concentration) and coordination performance, you are awarded 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.
Help Max collecting his stars. By steering the trampoline with your muscle input you can help Max 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.
Depending on the medical diagnosis or the rehabilitation focus you can choose between 13 different therapy programs (standard) to optimize your training sessions. These programs have been created according to the aspects of sport science and physical therapy. Additionally to the standard program, you can select between loosening program, strengthening program, or the coordination program. There are also specially designed programs for Parkinson's, stroke, multiple sclerosis, neurology, orthopedics and cardiology.
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 patient's physician or therapist has suggested a certain watt value for a detailed performance control, this value can be selected and during the MOTOmed training. You can input this corresponding value into the performance control, and the MOTOmed will automatically regulate the resistance level. This feature allows the patient to always keep contributing to the desired watt performance values.
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.
