MOTOmed Movement Therapy

MOTOmed muvi - Functions

 

muvi foot insertion aid

In order to easily insert and fasten the feet into the safety foot shells you can position the pedals into a comfortable position with the push of a button on the control panel. This function also helps you unfasten and take out the feet after the training.

muvi training analysis

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 touch display.

Analysis

At the end of each training all training data (time, distance, symmetry, speed, performance, metabolic rate, resistance, tone and occurrence of spasms) is summarized on the screen. The MOTOmed muvi saves single training results of one day as well as the complete training data in an overall overview. These values can be seen at any time.

muvi therapy programs

Besides free training MOTOmed muvi offers a selection of therapy options such as endurance training, strength endurance training or a loosening program which are designed according to therapeutic principles.

Therapy programs

Endurance training enables an effective cardiovascular therapy giving a low but continuous training stimulus over a longer period of time. It helps to build up and sustain basic fitness and improves the overall state of health. Endurance training is helpful to users without impairments just as much as to those with lifestyle diseases (obesity, hypertension, diabetes type II, cardiovascular diseases).

The strength endurance training is a combination of endurance and strength training. The training stimulus is higher than during endurance training whereas the training period is shorter. Strength endurance training focuses on targeted muscle training in order to build up muscle strength. This training applies to people with limited strength in order to regain mobility and power.

The loosening program is solely passive training, the motor moves the pedals and this passive motion therefore helps to loosen the muscles. In patients with cramps or spasms, the loosening program contributes to a lowered muscle tone giving back mobility and physical wellbeing.

Classic application fields of the loosening program are stroke, multiple sclerosis, cranio cerebral injury, spinal cord damage and infantile cerebral palsy.

muvi active/passive detection

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.

In addition, the current activity is indicated by a green or orange cyclist on the color screen.

muvi movement protection spasm control

save as PDF file 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

MOTOmed MovementProtector

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.

MOTOmed SpasmControl

The SpasmControl with automatic change of direction of rotation 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.

muvi servo cycling

The MOTOmed ServoCycling feature supports your active simultaneous 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.

muvi symmetry training

The simultaneous MOTOmed symmetry function visualizes the activity of the legs and arms during the “push” movement. This biofeedback feature enables the user to continuously adjust the movement and to concentrate on the “weaker” side of the body.

Relearning movement patterns

This allows for a targeted therapy of the concerned part of the body, e.g. with hemiplegia. Biofeedback on the big color screen and the accumulation of many repetitions can help to relearn movement patterns, to speed up the recovery and to maintain the therapy success. Thus, simultaneous symmetry training with the MOTOmed muvi improves the user’s cognitive and coordinative abilities and leads to physical wellbeing.

muvi symmetry game billy balance

The symmetry game “Billy balance” can be played with arms or legs separately as well as simultaneously. During arm training, Billy trains with a dumbbell which is lifted by your symmetrical pedal motion. When training the legs only, try to keep Billy on the island by pedaling symmetrically.

Simultaneous training combines both tasks. The game enables symmetrical training for the arms and the legs and presents an entertaining training alternative for hemiplegic patients. Moreover, the game stimulates cognitive abilities and thus opens up to a broad treatment spectrum.

muvi coordination game multitask

Multi task is a coordination game that trains arms and legs simultaneously. The goal is to color the nine white fields and to collect points by changing the movement intensity. You can choose between three different training levels to define the degree of difficulty. The simultaneous motion sequence helps to improve coordination and cognition abilities in particular.
