Arm and hand impairment can be improved through intensive, repetitive, task-oriented movements.
Arm and hand exercises assist the gradual reorganization of the brain, which subsequently allows the restoration of movement and functionality to the affected parts.This is a sustainable and powerful therapy concept for individuals who have suffered strokes, traumatic brain injury or neurological disorders resulting in hand and arm impairment.
Clinical trials also indicate that therapies are more effective if the patient initiates the exercise and remains motivated through the often lengthy rehabilitation process, a recovery period in which one-to-one therapist attention may not be economically viable.
The Armeo Therapy Concept improves the efficiency of therapy treatments because the exercises are self-initiated, self-directed, functional and intense. Even severely impaired patients can practice independently, without the constant presence of a therapist, allowing patients to exploit their full potential for recovery.
