The entry point to robotic gait therapy
The NexStep offers a perfect solution for institutions seeking an opportunity to begin using robotic technology or to complement their existing traditional therapy.
NexStep is an easy-to-use device for the functional rehabilitation of neurological and orthopaedic gait disorders. It enables the therapist to have increased patient interaction with flexible treatment options, to create the most efficient therapy conditions for every patient.
Variety of treatment options
Based on the G-EO system GUI, NexStep’s offers a similar intuitive access to a variety of treatment options. Seamless adjustments of all parameters improve the therapy experience for both the patient and therapist. As a result, there, are no interruptions during treatment due to time-consuming mechanical adjustments, as all the settings are controlled via the software interface.
- Full control over body position
- Seamless adaptation of gait parameters
- Quick access to the patient’s therapy data
- Security measures to prevent misuse
Modules to adapt to different patient needs
NexStep offers 3 add-on modules to enhance its capability, these are:
- FES module – with the integration of the Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) module, the therapist is able to add supplementary muscle activation through multiple stimulation channels. The FES is controlled through the NexStep GUI and can be adjusted quickly, at any time.
- Paediatric module – this module allows for NexStep to be used for the treatment of children as small as 90cm (3ft_
- Visual scenario – this module provides enhanced visualisation of patient performance along with the additional therapy options of walking in synchronised trails to increase patient motivation and awareness during each session.
“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.”
