This is a cycle-ergometer for movement therapy of the upper and lower limbs. This model’s main feature is the arm-ergometer which features a second stand-alone motor for the movement of the upper limbs.
This device provides the possibility of a cycling exercise by pedalling with the lower or upper limbs from a sitting and semi-reclined position. It is possible to access the device while sitting in the patient’s own wheel chair. In this model for exercising legs and arms, the structure holds also the arm-ergometer with its motor and handlebar, as well as the motor for the exercise of the lower limbs.
When doing the exercises with the upper limbs, if there is no residual motorial activity, MotoLife® allows a passive pedalling motion for the arms. Whenever the user is capable of pedalling, even weakly with his or her own muscle strength the motor will provide assistance to start and maintain the motion at a pre-set speed (assisted movement). If the user is capable of reaching a higher speed than the one set the motor will create an adjustable resistance which can be set in order to improve the work of the muscles and the cardiopulmonary efficiency (active kinesitherapy).
