Force Rendering and Haptic Feedback with Heaxel Icone at Neuromoves Penrith

We were invited down to NeuroMoves at Penrith, NSW this week to showcase the Heaxel – Icone for upper-limb rehabilitation.

We received a very warm welcome from the Penrith team who were quick to apply Icone’s concept of force rendering and haptic feedback to the everyday applications of their clientele with stroke-impacted impairments. On top of this, we discussed the value of the Icone’s clinical evaluation feature which provides a detailed report of the user’s progress in thirteen relative indexes for functional movement of the upper limb.

The team’s experience and expertise in the area certainly provided many insightful opinions from the user’s perspective. We are looking forward to seeing some of their clients try out the system at their Penrith and Clyde sites.

NeuroMoves is an innovative, holistic, evidence-based exercise and therapy service for people living with a neurological condition or physical disability. Their vision is to improve a person’s quality of life through maximising their mobility, function and independence, as well as understanding the unique aspects of each person’s condition.

Purposeful Rehabilition with Euleria Riablo at MediStrength

On 24th January, the Aerobe team in Sydney had the wonderful opportunity to visit MediStrength again for an insightful session to showcase Euleria Riablo’s immersive wearable IMUs for purposeful rehabilitation.

Riablo is an innovative medical device designed by Euleria to support physiotherapists in their everyday work with patients. It consists of wearable sensors and a stabilometric platform that transmits data via bluetooth to a software that provides a biofeedback through a screen.

During the demonstration, we had the opportunity to show the practical applications of how Euleria Riablo can enhance range of motion, balance, mobility, etc, when we were joined by one of MediStrength’s patients, Soon. Soon was excited to use Euleria Riablo and play training games and take functional assessments of strength, range of motion, balance, and fall risk prediction.

The Euleria range of interactive IMU’s include Riablo for purposeful rehabilitation, Kari for telehealth, and Back in Action for the objective assessment of return to sport for athletes.

Kari is a simple medical device composed of a sensor and a dedicated app that guides the patient through a personalised rehabilitation program. The app is designed to work on all mobile devices: like smartphones and tablets, without any limitations; all you need is an internet connection and a bluetooth.

Back in Action is a device designed in collaboration with the University of Innsbruck to establish the return to sport after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACL) while reducing the risk of re-injury. Back in Action allows you to better evaluate and assess performance of the lower limbs through balance, strength, agility and speed testing so that training is objective and repeatable.

The Aerobe team is grateful for opportunities and partnerships, such as with MediStrength, to be able to discuss how our products can help patients better and the future of assisted technology in treating patients.

Thanks to Urs Schaller from MediStrength for hosting us!

Heaxel Icone Trial at Neuromoves, ECU in Perth Australia

 

Earlier this week, our team in Perth installed the Heaxel ICONE at the Neuromoves clinic at Edith Cowan University for a trial and conducted the operator training to Spinal Cord Injuries Australia’s team of experienced and dedicated staff.

The upper-limb smart robot will be busy engaging with clients in interactive games and objective assessments to support their rehabilitation journey.

If you would like to try the ICONE or find out more about the rehabilitation programs available at Neuromoves, please do not hesitate to get in touch with the friendly team at SCIA! They have 11 sites across Australia with a highly experienced team of allied health professionals.

Revolutionising the Field of Neurorehabilitation with Heaxel Icone

In the month of October, our team in Perth had the opportunity to showcase our upper limb neurorehabilitation robot, the Heaxel Icone

On top of exhibiting our unique range of products, the Aerobe team engages with partners through open discussions in order to gain in-depth insights and professional opinions. Through site visits, we provide our clients the opportunity to trial our systems on their patients and clients to see results and impact first-hand. 

The Heaxel Icone is revolutionising the field of neurorehabilitation by offering an immersive and motivating solution to upper limb rehabilitation. By tailoring interactive exercises for specific patients in a simplistic manner, the smart system keeps the rehabilitation intensive while keeping the user engaged. 

At Therapy Focus, we had the chance to speak to Kelvin Kong, Project Manager of New Technology and Robotics, and his team about Heaxel Icone’s software development blueprint. We deliberated the clinical research findings that contributed to the design and development of the Icone’s therapy programs and functions, as well as the system’s pathway for expansion and updates as more findings are presented. 

As the Heaxel Icone is designed according to the latest scientific evidence from neuroplasticity simulations, the technology and interface is one step ahead with great potential to create even more interactive and engaging games in time. The team at Therapy Focus was impressed by the technology’s ability to promote active motor planning and provided us with positive feedback on the efficient use of the device.

We were also hosted by Hayley Paterson and her team at Neuromoves: Perth from Spinal Cord Injuries Australia, where we contended the Icone’s adaptive interaction control with full-sensing capabilities and easy setup, allowing clinicians to adopt any therapeutic protocol involving elbow flexion-extension, shoulder protraction-retraction, internal-external rotation, flexion-extension and abduction-adduction. With stroke patients making up 30% percent of their patients, the Heaxel Icone serves as an easy-to-setup device that will cater to the needs of their most significant clients. During the visit, we provided the opportunity to demonstrate the simplicity of the device on one of Spinal Cord Injuries Australia’s clients, and the team also took turns trying Heaxel Icone’s fun and engaging games.  

Our presentation at Osborne Park Hospital was joined by their large team of physiotherapists and occupational therapists. Between the Aerobe and Osborne Park Hospital team, the potential use of the device in tele-health capabilities was discussed and how the system can help patients from the comforts of their home. As Heaxel Icone is the first all-in-one and plug-and-play medical system, it can support rehabilitation professionals in providing intensive treatments for outpatient neurological patients, even through Covid lockdowns!

It is always rewarding to network with enthusiastic professionals eager to make a change and improve the lives of the community. The reception for the Heaxel Icone has been tremendous and we are excited to see its implementation roll out across the western states!
