The use of rehabilitation therapies for treating locomotion system injuries and diseases are often associated with improvements in the patient’s overall cardiovascular, pulmonary, and metabolism well being. These improvements are typically due to the multidiscipline approach and not due exclusively to one physiotherapeutic intervention. Likewise the same can be said for MotionMaker™. What is clear, is that robotic devices can help overcome the potential for therapist fatigue and so perform an exercise regime that is consistent from start to finish.

Of primary interest for SWORTEC with the MotionMaker™ device is the training and development of the patient’s voluntary muscle control, also referred to as voluntary motor control. The MotionMaker™ device can measure and detect changes in voluntary muscle control over time, using its CLEMS™ technology. Of greater importance is that it has been shown to significantly improve voluntary muscle control in some patients.

Having a MotionMaker™ device that can train and improve voluntary muscle control, will help both prepare patients for walk-training, and allow them to gain maximum benefit from their walk re-education programme.
