G-EO Gait Rehabilitation
The Worlds Most Advanced Robotic-assisted Device
G-eo, from Reha, is the only device to offer the unique feature of realistically simulating climbing stairs and can be operated by a single therapist. The system’s floor walking movement was inspired by a study produced by Professor David A. Winter; award winner and member of the Gait and Clinical Movement Analysis Society.
In essence, research found that realistic movement simulation helped patients regain their walking ability more quickly than following conventional therapy approaches alone.
The G-EO system offers
- A realistic simulation of a physiological gait pattern it allows a patient to recover mobility and independence in daily living.
- Active Mode – self-initiate the gait simulation by overcoming a pre-selected resistance threshold.
- Active Assistive Mode – senses efforts to overcome the pre-selected resistance threshold and adjusts the patients’ effort accordingly
- Unique simulated stair climbing (up and down) feature – Depending on the severity of the injury, this feature allows the possibility of a complete rehabilitation pathway towards full recovery and independency. Speak to a Cyclone expert for advice.
- Unique partial movements feature – Allows for isolating and generating specific phase of the gait cycle. Partial movement can be seen as the first steps to take into the gait rehabilitation process, pre-swing, swing and stance. The trajectories have been defined according to the phases of the gait cycle described in literature published by Dr. J. Perry, pioneer of Gait Biomechanics.
“End-effector type robot-assisted gait training systems were found to be more effective in locomotor recovery in stroke patients when they were applied in conjunction with conventional gait training rather than conventional gait training alone.”
