Ectron is pleased to announce the launch of Tyromotions new PABLO which is being demonstrated for the very first at RehabWeek 2017, in London.

The   PABLO®   system is a modern assessment and therapy device for the rehabilitation of patients with impaired motor functions.

MINIMAL MOVEMENTS BECOME VISIBLE

The sensitivity of the Motion sensors enables the tracking of underlying movements. Patients who perform a therapeutic game with minimal movements are more motivated and have more fun during the rehabilitation process.

DAILY ACTIVITIES

Activities of daily living can be implemented into the therapy sessions at a high rate of repetition with the PABLO® system. This link to daily routines supports the motivation of the patient and enables his/her motor learning. Sit-to-stand, steering a car, reaching for objects or climbing the stairs are just a few examples.

ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES

Creativity has no limits! In combination with the TYROS software every therapeutic movement-exercise can be done in a motivating way and additional feedback using the PABLO® Motionsensors. It‘s simple handling enables a very quick therapy setup with almost no chances for compensation movements.

In December 2015, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE)  approved rTMS (Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) as an effective and safe method of treating depression for patients in the UK. Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS) is a treatment which uses pulsing magnetic fields to activate brain centres associated with mood. The treatment has a number of advantages over traditional medication as it is non-invasive. It does not involve surgery, anesthesia or sedation and it does not have the side effects associated with antidepressants. rTMS has also been shown effective in treating migraine, post-natal depression and pain.

The guidelines issued by NICE have not specified or restricted the type of rTMS treatment, which means that practitioners can offer treatment using conventional rTMS – which takes around 40 minutes per session – and/or   theta burst,   which takes around 5 minutes.

Ectron are the UK exclusive distributors of Magventure's rTMS system known as Magvita. This is the only system that has been awarded a CE mark for clinical use.
