DIEGO is the most advanced and most versatile arm-shoulder rehabilitation device worldwide.
Intelligent gravity compensation, robotics and virtual reality facilitate the
often difficult training to regain lost arm motor function. Uni- and bilaterally.
For adults and children. Throughout all phases of rehabilitation.
Therapy for arms and shoulders
Diego relieves the therapist and the patient of the difficult motion guidance of the arms. Because of its overhead construction, DIEGO is easily accessible from all side and thus offer space for a qualitative therapy of arm-and shoulder motor function. With DIEGO, you have room for motion, which is why the arm-shoulder rehabilitation device is particularly suited for task-oriented training with real objects. However, DIEGO doesn’t only offers more room for therapy but also more freedom. The intelligent gravity compensation (IGC) makes heavy arms lighter and allows physiological movement of the arms in all phases of rehabilitation.
Be they passive, assistive, or active applications, the DIEGO can be adapted to the individual needs of each patient. Easily and quickly.
Arm straps allow for a fast and correct attachment to the device. And with the integrated tyroS Software, the setup takes under a minute per patient.
Advantages of Therapy with DIEGO
Robotic-assisted, intelligent Gravity Compensation (IGC) – for patients with limited motor function of the arm
Uni- as well as bilateral applications in all phases of arm-rehabilitation
Fast set-up for a maximum of therapy time thanks to the unique sling system
Evaluation and Therapy
The tyroS Software is part of all our devices and makes the DIEGO one of the most multifaceted arm-shoulder-rehabilitation devices currently available.
Therapy with the DIEGO is rich in variety: interactive therapy modules provide audiovisual and haptic feedback; the patient experiences and feels motion in a virtual reality. This is motivating and enables more repetitions, which are so essential for automated movement. In order to keep up the level of motivation, the control settings can be adjusted to the patient. In addition, every therapy module is equipped with a number of different levels of difficulty. Thus, arm-therapy at the patient’s maximum limit of performance is possible throughout all phases of rehabilitation. In order to make therapy achievements visible, the therapy progress is recorded in a clear and easily understandable way and can be recalled any time.
Therapy with DIEGO makes the rehabilitation process more varied, more motivating and more target-oriented.

On the 25th April 2017 the National Institute for Health Research published a report stating repetitive task training can help recovery after stroke.
Following a stroke, people who received repetitive task training showed greater improvements in performing functional tasks, such as picking up a cup, standing up and walking. These improvements were sustained for up to six months.
Disability following stroke is common, affecting around half of all stroke survivors. This NIHR-funded review of over thirty trials found that repetitive task training provided small gains in arm and leg function, balance and walking distance (about 35 metres).
We do not yet know the optimum number of sessions, or the ideal duration or intensity. However, it is a versatile and relatively easy intervention which can be delivered by physiotherapists/occupational therapists in groups, individually, in hospital, in the community or at home. Depending on the nature of the exercise, there is also potential for people to continue to practice on their own or with carer support.
This review shows that it can help people to improve functionality and mobility .
MagVenture are looking forward to a busy week at the Clinical TMS Society (18-19th May) and the American Psychiatric Association (APA) Annual Meeting (20th-24th May) in San Diego, USA.
The Annual meeting of the Clinical TMS Society provides an unique opportunity to connect at an international gathering of TMS providers and researchers set alongside both the American Psychiatric Association and International Society for ECT and Neuromodulation meetings.
If you are in San Diego, come and along and meet the MagVenture Team.
