Assessment of Euleria’s Back in Action with Top 200 ATP Tennis Player Nick Lindahl

We recently caught up with Nick Lindahl and put him through a battery of seven tests assessing balance, strength, agility, and speed on the Euleria Back in Action module.

The Back in Action was created with the aim of evaluating return-to-sport in a simple, fast, and objective way after the reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). It is designed to help coaches like Nick get their players back onto the court quickly and safely after injury, by integrating wearable units and interactive software to reliably and accurately assess their progress and provide a suitable rehabilitation pathway.

Nick is a former top 200 ranked ATP tennis player who has spent many years on the professional men’s circuit competing against some of the best players in the world. His career highlights such as making the Australian Open Junior boys singles final, winning the Australian Open wildcard playoff in 2010 against Bernard Tomic, and has collected many wins against the top 50 players in the world.

Nick now focuses his efforts on developing up-and-coming players from the junior level to those playing on the ATP tour. He is passionate about helping players develop their game and navigating the challenges of the sport at the elite level.

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.

Gait-Retraining with Nordic NeuroSTIM INCEDO at Concentric Rehab Midlands

We were invited back to Concentric Rehabilitation at Midlands, WA in December for a trial of the INCEDO walking rehabilitation device by Nordic NeuroSTIM.

INCEDO is a portable reflex-based electrical therapy device that stimulates the patient’s own physiological withdrawal reflex through electrical stimulation. It sustainably improves walking speed and augments conventional gait training methods for hemiparetic patients.

An electrical stimulus to the sole of the foot is synchronised with each step which evokes a reflex as the patient relieves the foot, thus assisting in lifting and performing the step. The step-synchronised electrical stimulation of the reflex arc during gait training promotes faster re-learning of natural walking and helps users achieve a higher walking speed. Unlike drop-foot stimulators, the INCEDO promotes neuroplasticity through stimulation of both the afferent and efferent pathways to promote independence and faster automation of walking.

In this video, we compare the differences of stimulation ON and stimulation OFF in the user who is eight to nine months into gait-retraining. Enhanced synergistic flexion of the ankle, knee and hip is observed when the INCEDO device is switched on. In addition, the user expressed his confidence in the device, which subsequently allowed him to ambulate outdoors while dual-tasking (counting backward from 100 in decrements of 3) without falling.

Thank you to Godfrey Asimwe and team at Concentric Midlands for being excellent hosts as always! Your expertise and knowledge in the field are crucial to the neuro-physiotherapy space and your important work help take your patients forward in their rehabilitation journey.
