Lokomat Robot

FIVAN has extensive experience in robotic technology applied to gait rehabilitation since it has thefirst Lokomat robot in the Valencian Community and the second in Spain.

The Lokomat is a device used in the rehabilitation of patients with neurological disorders that affect walking, such as spinal cord injuries, brain damage, multiple sclerosis or strokes. The device is composed of a mechanical structure and control software that allows therapistspersonalize treatment and adapt it to the specific needs of each patient.

The patient is placed in a type of harness to attach him to the robot, which in turn is placed on a treadmill. The robot controls the patient's leg movements and steps through a series of sensors that detect the movement and position of the lower extremities. Therapists can adjust the robot's speed, resistance, and stride length to provide personalized treatment that fits each patient's individual needs.

HeLokomat objective is to help patients regain gait and leg coordination, as well as improve their balance and ability to walk. Lokomat therapy is acomplement to traditional physiotherapyand may help speed recovery and improve rehabilitation outcomes in patients with neurological gait disorders.

HeLokomat offers a number of benefitsin the neurological and physical rehabilitation process, including:

  1. Assisted walking: Facilitates the performance of walking movements in patients with motor difficulties, thanks to the robotic support and the suspension system that allows body weight to be unloaded.

  2. Repetition and consistency: The Lokomat allows you to perform a large number of repetitions of steps in a consistent and precise manner, which promotes motor learning and recovery of walking function.

  3. Personalization of treatment: The device allows adjustment of speed, weight support and robotic assistance according to the individual needs of each patient, facilitating personalized and adapted therapy.

  4. Stimulation of normal gait patterns: The Lokomat helps to correct and maintain more natural and symmetrical gait patterns, which reduces the appearance of compensations and postural vices.

  5. Reduction of the therapist's workload: By providing robotic support, the Lokomat reduces the physical load and effort of the therapist during gait re-education sessions.

  6. Real-time biofeedback: The Lokomat offers real-time information on the patient's performance and active participation, allowing for constant monitoring and adjustment of treatment.

  7. Motivation and engagement: The virtual reality system and biofeedback integrated into the Lokomat can increase patient motivation and engagement in the rehabilitation process.

  8. Applicability in various conditions: Lokomat is useful in the rehabilitation of patients with various neurological pathologies, such as strokes, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, multiple sclerosis and cerebral palsy.

 

In general, the Lokomat offers numerous benefits in gait rehabilitation, allowing a more personalized, effective and motivating therapy for patients and professionals.
