DATA-DRIVEN INNOVATION
Restoring Mobility to Patients with Bioengineered Rehabilitation Solutions

Robotic rehabilitation products are the result of groundbreaking medical engineering research and development at the Newman Laboratory for Biomechanics and Human Rehabilitation at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

InMotion ARM

The InMotion ARM is an evidence based, intelligent interactive rehabilitation technology that senses patient movements and limitations, providing assistance-as-needed™ in real-time. It allows clinicians to efficiently deliver optimum intensive sensorimotor therapy to the shoulder and elbow to achieve the development of new neural pathways. Extensive research has shown it to be effective, especially for stroke and cerebral palsy

  • Shoulder internal/external rotation
  • Elbow flexion/extension
Task Specific Movement Training
  • Initiation
  • Smoothness
  • Coordination
  • Accuracy
  • Efficiency
  • Range
  • Stabilization
  • Adaptive Resistance

InMotion HAND

The InMotion HAND is an add-on module to be used with the InMotion ARM™. The two work together to provide assist-as-needed™ support for reaching with grasp and release movements, or independently for focused training on individual hand movements. It allows clinicians to efficiently deliver optimum intensive sensorimotor therapy to the hand to achieve the development of new neural pathways. Extensive research has shown it to be effective, especially for stroke and cerebral palsy.

InMotion WRIST

The InMotion WRIST is an evidence based and research proven interactive rehabilitation device that senses patient movements and limitations, and provides assistance-as-needed™. It can accommodate the range of motion of a normal wrist in everyday tasks and can be used by clinicians as a stand-alone treatment option or in addition to the InMotion ARM. The InMotion WRIST enables clinicians to efficiently deliver optimum intensive sensorimotor wrist and forearm therapy to patients with neurological conditions. Extensive research has shown it to be effective, especially for stroke and cerebral palsy

Clinical Degrees of Freedom
  • Wrist abduction/adduction
  • Wrist flexion/extension
  • Forearm pronation/supination
  • Wrist and forearm combination
Task Specific Movement Training
  • Initiation
  • Smoothness
  • Coordination
  • Accuracy
  • Efficiency
  • Range
  • Stabilization
  • Adaptive Resistance
