It is widely recognised that technology can make a significant difference in the recovery of patients following a stroke, head injury, spinal cord injury or other neurological conditions such as multiple scleroisis or parkinson's. Ectron has partnered with the world's leading medical device companies to provide the latest in robotics and rehabilitation technology to the UK's neurological rehabilitation hospitals and clinics.
Tyromotion is one of the world-wide leading manufacturers and suppliers of robotic and computer assisted technology for the rehabilitation sector.
The company focusses on the development of new and innovative technologies based on the use of powerful mechatronic systems for rehabilitation. The systems enable patients reach their goals in a faster, responsive and motivating way. This helps doctors and therapists guide their patients through the rehabilitation process in faster, goal focused and cost effective way.
Today the innovative therapy units of Tyromotion are being used in rehabilitation centres and clinics in the UK and world-wide.
Bioness is the leading provider of innovative technologies helping people regain mobility and independence. Bioness solutions include functional electrical stimulation (FES) systems providing functional and therapeutic benefits for individuals affected by neurological conditions and orthopedic injuries.
Rehabilitation of sensory and cognitive function typically involves methods for retraining neural pathways or training new neural pathways to regain or improve neurocognitive functioning that has been diminished by disease or trauma.
Research indicates that magnetic stimulation is able to improve the rehabilitation when used as a co-treatment for indications such as stroke, paresis, spasticity, aphasia/apraxia, pain, neuromuscular disturbances, and movement disorders. In the case of stroke, the loss of voluntary movement in the limbs of one side of the body or loss of speech production or understanding are severe consequences.
As opposed to most of the already used methods, magnetic stimulation is treating the cause and not just the symptoms. Magnetic stimulation is painless as there is no current stimulation across your skin.
Ectron is pleased to announce the launch of Tyromotions new PABLO which is being demonstrated for the very first at RehabWeek 2017, in London.
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.
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.
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.

Ectron is proud to partner with Dudley and Walsall Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust in the launch of it's TMS clinical trials.
The team from Ectron along with Claus Mathiesen from MagVenture spent two days at the Dorothy Pattison Hospital in Walsall covering the benefits of TMS Therapy for the treatment of depression along with sharing the latest TMS research.
In addition, the whole team gained an understanding of what TMS can offer as a treatment, who it may be suitable for, as well as a practical "hands-on sessions" with the MagVita TMS Therapy system.
Dr Russell Davies and the team will now be going forward and the trial is due to start this month.

5th Annual Queen Square Upper Limb Neurorehabilitation Course, London 29th-30th June 2017.
Ectron are pleased to announce it is sponsoring the 5th Annual Queen Square Upper Limb Neurorehabilitation Course, London 29th-30th June 2017.
5th Annual Queen Square Upper Limb Neurorehabilitation Course: Treating patients with upper limb deficit: Integrating research into practice
The two-day course provides an overview of current research looking at treatment and rehabilitation options for the neurological patient with upper limb deficit. The course aims to assist in the practical real-life translation of scientific evidence into clinical practice and asks - what is it that makes an upper limb therapy effective? Delegates will have the opportunity to trial novel devices and robotic technology.
Course lecturers are from The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, the UCL Institute of Neurology and other renowned institutes in upper limb rehabilitation in neurological patients.
This year the team took delivery of the latest in technology from Tyromotion and have full Tyrosolution including MYRO at the hospital to complete the Upper Limb Suite. The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery are seeing fantastic results with their patients and continued benefits are often seen for at least 6 months beyond the programme.
