Since its founding in 2004 by prominent medical technology entrepreneur Professor Shlomo Ben-Haim, Motorika has set out to create robot-assisted solutions to meet the therapeutic needs of patients suffering from a variety of neurological conditions, as well as orthopedic and post-surgery dysfunction. We work with top experts in the field to develop and market high-end robotic-assisted rehabilitation products for upper and lower extremities.
At its core, Motorika is all about combining the most up-to-date clinical science that medicine has to offer and the most innovative robotic rehabilitation technology in the world today. Our goal is to achieve optimal outcomes for patients who are coping with extremities impairment, resulting from neurological conditions such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, as well as many orthopedic injuries.
Pioneering Medical Technology
Over the years, Motorika has established itself as an industry leader in the field. With more than a decade of development and commercial experience, the company now has an Intellectual Property portfolio that includes 35 patents, active applications and planned filings for at least eight new patents.
Motorika’s two signature robotic gait training platforms – the ReoGo™ for upper extremities and the ReoAmbulator™ for the lower – have become essential tools in hospitals and rehabilitation facilities around the globe, and have been shown to reduce patient care expense by maximizing rehabilitation and recovery, thereby reducing long-term costs for patient care. Both ReoGo™ and ReoAmbulator™ are designed and manufactured at Motorika Medical Israel.
Both systems harness patients’ own capacity to retrain the brain using principles of neuroplasticity, repetitive motion, and biofeedback, all of which are guided and mediated by the advanced, patient-specific functionality of the machines. Through personally designed repetitive motions, patients are able to effectively “rewire” their brains’ neural pathways and synapses to improve their range and speed of motion, accuracy and smoothness of movement, muscle strength, cognitive functions – and maintain these normal gait patterns.
This proven approach places the patient at the center of his or her own rehabilitation regimen at the same time that it affords the therapist unequaled measurement, control, and analytic data in order to provide fully personalized therapy sessions, at all times reflecting the patient’s current capacity and clinical status. Prior to each session, the patient is measured for force and range of motion capabilities and Motorika’s systems are able to provide recommended personalized session parameters that also give the therapist comprehensive real-time data at all stages of the rehabilitation process, leading to optimal solutions for improved outcomes.
In every regard, Motorika is committed to providing personalized adaptive treatment designed to enable the patient to retrain the brain and recover the maximum degree of function possible.
