RT300-Supine

FES arm and leg cycling from a bed

The RT300-Supine provides FES arm and leg cycling from a bed. It is ideal for use in the ICU, acute rehabilitation environments, or for those patients who are confined to bed at home . Integrating the RT300-Supine into your service can achieve improvement in clinical and patient centred outcomes, as well as reducing the net cots of ICU admission and longer term effects of ICU Acquired Weakness.

Mounted on an expandable table fitting over and around beds, this allows it to be brought to the patient. Height is easily adjustable via the motorised table up to 47.5″ (120cm)

The RT300-Supine accommodates beds up to 46.5″ (118cm) wide including bariatiric beds and comes with:

  • An antimicrobial touch screen
  • Easily cleanable surfaces
  • Cleanable gel pads for skin protection
  • Adult and paediatric pedals
  • Adjustable cranks for patient size and asymmetry

Supine FES cycling can help prevent muscle atrophy, improve skin condition and promote wound healing.

The electric cart facilitates correct positioning over the end or side of the bed, while restraints hold the system in position. Adjustable calf supports secure the legs while the feet are placed in the footrests. A pulley system controls leg abduction and adduction during therapy sessions.

What is FES?

FES is a well-established rehabilitation technique that uses pulses of electrical current to stimulate peripheral nerves, (the ‘lower’ motor neurons that connect the spinal cord to the muscles), generating muscle contractions and patterned muscle activity. It is applied using adhesive pads placed over the muscle to be activated.

With Restorative Therapies systems, FES creates patterned movement in the arms, legs and trunk. In people with weak or paralysed muscles, it 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.
