Technology in Spinal Cord Injury Rehab

Upper Extremities
Armeo Spring

Helps with strengthening and relearning how to use the muscles in the hand, wrist, and arm while performing functional activities.

Bioness

Uses electrical stimulation to strengthen weakened muscles.

FES Bikes

Uses electrical current on upper extremities while cycling on a stationary bike to stimulate weakened muscles.

Lower extremities
Exoskeleton

Robotic exoskeleton used to provide upright postural support while beginning locomotor (walking) training and/or lower extremity strengthening activities in standing position.

Bioness

Uses electrical stimulation to strength weak and/or paralyzed muscles.

FES Bikes

 Uses electrical current on lower extremities while cycling on a stationary bike to stimulate weak or paralyzed muscles.

Locomotor Training
Body Weight Supported Treadmills

Specially-designed treadmills with support rigs used to allow SCI patients to walk while supported. This promotes muscle strengthening and improves posture and gait.

Lite Gait

Provides postural support to practice walking over ground.

Exoskeleton

Robotic exoskeleton used to provide upright postural support while beginning locomotor (walking) training and/or lower extremity strengthening activities in standing position.

Orthotics
