PABLO FOR UPPER LIMB TRAINING

Pablo for exercising the hand and arm after spinal cord injury

For upper limb therapy, especially hand and shoulder, we have a new computer program at the centre called PabloPlus. Even the smallest amounts of force or movement can be picked up by the computer and used to facilitate greater strength gains. This is not only a very useful tool to encourage function and independence, it uses games for training and is addictive.

 

MOTOMED FOR UPPER LIMB AND LOWER LIMB

It has an LCD screen that gives great feedback about symmetry from left to right, revolutions per minute, heart rate and many more...even better, it can sense spasms and spasticity and reverse direction.
