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.
Over the next few days the team from Ectron will be in Graz celebrating 10 years of Tyromotion with the Tyromotion team and their international partners. During the event Ectron will learn about the latest advances in Tyromotion technology.
Guest Speakers In addition to Kathryn Farris, Tyromotion are introducing two more guest speakers.
Dr. Andrea Turolla, PT PhD IRCCS San Camillo Hospital Foundation – Venice/Italy Topic:
New approaches for closed-loop control of devices, in rehabilitation: principles and evidence.
Michael Laborn, OT Ergotherapie Laborn – Ergoldsbach/Bavaria/Germany Topic:
Computer aided intensive therapy of the hand- and arm-function. A promising approach.
