Rehabilitation in a safe environment: What if there was no possibility of falling?

ZeroG is an advanced gait robot that focuses on lower limb training, addressing a range of issues including coordination, balance and muscle weakness. It has a secure system that prevents patients from falling. It consists of a harness system attached to a robot, which provides support and stability during the training. Patients can safely engage in controlled training sessions, confident that the harness will prevent any falls. This innovative approach empowers individuals undergoing rehabilitation to push their limits without fear, promoting better outcomes.

Who is the ZeroG for?

ZeroG is suitable for people with neurological conditions, including those with stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury or multiple sclerosis. The individualized rehabilitation plan determines which robotics are used to support the patient’s personal goals.

What is the ZeroG for?

The ZeroG device enables patients to embark on a journey of improvement in their gait and general mobility. The therapeutic benefits extend beyond those of exercise therapy, reducing the fear of falling and thus promoting self-confidence and independence. The ZeroG is of significant value in early rehabilitation, as it allows the body weight to be relieved. This is important for promoting independence in the early stages of recovery and enables and facilitates exercises such as sitting and standing.

Training Sessions with ZeroG

A typical session with ZeroG starts with the patient being secured with a harness beneath the robotic system, that looks similar to a backpack attached to the ceiling. After that the therapist adjusts the weight support. Sessions are tailored to the individual, containing various activities such as walking, balance training, stair negotiation, and functional tasks relevant to the patient’s goals. To enhance engagement, personalized elements such as music or hobbies are integrated, optimizing motivation.

Utilizing Collected Data:

The data collected during ZeroG sessions serves as a valuable tool for both patients and therapists. For patients, visualizing their progress fosters motivation and a sense of achievement. Meanwhile, therapists utilize this data in interdisciplinary meetings to adjust therapy plans according to each patient’s progress. This tailored approach ensures that rehabilitation remains challenging but still doable to the patient, ensuring an efficient rehabilitation and therefore more quality of life.
