Title (EN) MACHINE FOR THE REHABILITATION OF MUSCULAR FUNCTIONS
(FR) MACHINE DESTINEE A LA REEDUCATION DES MUSCLES
Abstract:
(EN) An equipment for motor rehabilitation and in particular for restoration of some muscular functions of an inferior limb, associated to the upright posture and to deambulation, especially for patients of neurologic and orthopedic pertinence. The present equipment consists of a height-adjustable seat (2) and a footplate (3) before its sliding away from and towards the seat at variable speed according to the therapist's discretion. A speed reduction and/or a stop of the footplate movement are in particular performed during the backstroke of the footplate. Various types of foot supports may be applied to footplate. Moreover a support frame is provided so as to enable the patient to perform said therapeutic movement in standing position. The footplate movement is power-driven.
(FR) Un appareil destiné à la rééducation motrice, et notamment au rétablissement de certaines des fonctions musculaires d'un membre inférieur associées à la station debout et à la marche, notamment pour les malades neurologiques et orthopédiques. L'appareil est constitué d'un siège à hauteur réglable (2) devant lequel se trouve un marchepied (3) qui peut s'approcher et s'éloigner du siège selon la commande du thérapeute. Le freinage et/ou l'arrêt du mouvement du marchepied s'effectue notamment pendant sa course de retour. Divers types de supports de pied peuvent être disposés sur le marchepied. Par ailleurs, un cadre de support sert à permettre au malade d'être debout lorsqu'il effectue ledit mouvement thérapeutique. Le mouvement du marchepied est commandé par moteur.
