It is important to straighten the patients in the early period in case of the diseases like stroke, brain injury and brain tumor.
With the usage of robotic bed Erigo-Pro:
- Enhancement of the present awareness of patients
- Regaining the lost functions of movement
- Prevention of the restriction of joint mobility
- Prevention of bed sores can be ensured.
How is the Robotic Bed Erigo-Pro Used?
It is important to straighten the patients in the early period during Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation. The patients who had a stroke or brain injury are straightened gradually while their blood pressure, heartbeat and general condition are tracked. Within this process, the robotic legs ensure the initiation of walking.
The robotic bed Erigo is consisted of the continuing passive movements- functional electric simulation and tilt table devices. Within the early period physical therapy and rehabilitation program, the usage of Erigo may contribute the rapid regaining of walking with the support of conventional physical therapy in cases of stroke, traumatic injuries in spinal cord and brain or brain injury disturbances where the movement ability is restricted so much. It also has positive impact on the patient with the feature of brining onto foot earlier. There is also a muscle stimulation system with electric simulation to prevent myolysis in legs caused by immobility. The system can also be used to enable a rapid muscle development for the patients with advanced level myolysis.
Why is the robotic bed Erigo Pro so important in the earlier stage of the rehabilitation?
Lying in the bed for a couple of weeks may cause the weakening of cardiovascular system, myolysis, osteolysis, eburnation, bed sores, decrease of intestinal activities and rise of depression risk in the patients with stroke. In order not to encounter these problems, the patient should be made afoot and moved as soon as possible.
Early treatment is so important in preventing the permanent paralysis of the patient in case of the diseases like stroke, brain injury and brain tumour which cause functional disorders. Many multiple problems like the impairment of consciousness, speech, understanding, nutrition, urinary and faecal incontinence, tracheostomy, urinary catheter, hearth rhythm problems, low and high blood pressure issues may be experienced especially in the earlier periods and these should be managed quite well.
