RT200

Hybrid FES System – Exercises Arms and Legs Simultaneously

RT200 is a seated motorised FES elliptical and is suitable for a wide range of patients. It can be prescribed for home use to maintain continuity of care for patients who require long term therapy. RT200 is the only hybrid FES system that works arms and legs simultaneously. It has smooth elliptical actions and a good range which means patients can experience increased cardiovascular performance.

The RT200 uses a SAGE smart stimulation system. It allows users to exercise up to 16 individual muscle groups, including the arms, legs, core abdominal and erector spinae muscles.

In most circumstances, users will gradually build up to one-hour daily sessions. However, everyone is different, so the programme will develop according to your individual needs. Your clinician will prescribe the usage and frequency of the treatment which is appropriate for you.

What is FES?

FES is a well-established rehabilitation technique that uses pulses of electrical current to stimulate peripheral nerves.  FES is applied using adhesive pads placed over the muscle to be activated.  When activated, it generates muscle contractions and patterned muscle activity.

With restorative therapies systems, FES creates patterned movement in the arms, legs and trunk. In people with weak or paralysed muscles, FES enables muscles to work and perform activities, even if the individual may not be able to consciously participate. Users can also stimulate core erector spinal muscles and abdominal muscles during the therapy session. This group of muscles are important for posture, balance, transferring, reaching and coughing.
