Medical exoskeleton «E‑Helper»
Exoskeleton - new opportunities of physical rehabilitation.
Modern technologies are moving quickly. Robotic simulators and simulators using VR technologies are replacing traditional methods. A close study of the phenomenon of neuroplasticity allows us to create new effective equipment.
The key project over the past few years is the project «E-Helper» .
There were designed special gear motors. To realize high autonomy, a special battery was developed, consisting of separate high-current lithium-iron-phosphate cells. Separately, in the design of the exoskeleton, a system of quick settings for the patient is provided, as well as a comfortable seating of the patient, due to abduction of extremity in the horizontal direction.
Currently we have completed technical tests of the «E-Helper» exoskeleton, conducted tests with pilots, and received feedback from rehabilitation doctors.
But our goal is not just to create an exoskeleton - it is more comprehensive. As a result of our work, we see the creation of a new robotic environment for medical rehabilitation. For this, we have developed systems for the joint use of an exoskeleton with other types of rehabilitation equipment.
USE OF E-HELPER IN CONJUNCTION WITH REATERRA TREADMILL
The treadmill, using infrared sensors, automatically adjusts to the speed of movement of the exoskeleton.
Reduces workload for the medical staff;
Increases the safety of rehabilitation process..
Combined use with ReaPort rail systems
Reduces the number of medical staff involved in the rehabilitation session.
Provides patient comfort and safety.
- Increases opportunities for drawing up a rehabilitation program.
Combined use with a system of electrical muscle stimulationUse the 8-chanel electrostimulation and electromyography system in combination with the exoskeleton for an increased efferent stimulation and improvement of neural plasticity (the system contains sensors that detect position; therefore, the system performs electrostimulation during the necessary walking phase).
The system is comprised of 4 blocks.
Each block has two electrostimulation and electromyography channels .
The system allows to track the involvement of patient’s muscles into the act of walking during the entire training process. The system allows to accurately detect the attempt of muscle movement during step initiation.
We are open for cooperation!
