What makes the ReoGo™ unique?

Fully motorized and ergonomic robotic arm, along with advanced software which combines personalized, patient-specific exercises and engaging games designed by leading therapists.  Motorika’s innovative ReoGo™ is a highly effective robotic system for upper limb therapy.

How does it work?                                                                                  

This portable and user-friendly platform facilitates two-or three-dimensional movements, allowing patients who have suffered a stroke or other neurological injuries to essentially retrain the brain through measured repetitive motion and advanced biofeedback.

Underlying the treatment modality is the clinical principle that carefully designed, repetitive and guided neuromuscular training serves to enhance learning and promote cortical reorganization, which, in turn, contributes to functional recovery. As a robotic-assisted device, the ReoGo™ provides up to ten times more repetitions per session than an average non-robotic treatment, thereby improving recovery and treatment outcomes.

Clinical research shows:
ReoGo™ improves independence & functional ability 

Clinical evaluations of therapy using the ReoGo™ have been conducted in the US, Japan, Italy, Germany and Israel with a combined total of over 350 sub-acute and chronic stroke patients, with conclusions showing that the platform is safe, has no side effects, and has a significant positive effect on proximal upper extremities movement and synergy movement, as well as on lower function cohort. The ReoGo™ offers dramatic functionality improvements in the shoulder, elbow, and forearm – improvements which are maintained over time.

 

ReoGo™ therapist benefits:

  • Easy to set up and operate
  • Highly intuitive user interface with multi-language support
  • Advanced management software with comprehensive assessment and recording capabilities, which enables the therapist to design and personalize treatment to the patient’s capabilities and status in real time:
  • Detailed feedback on patient progress
  • Monitoring and tracking of movement quality
  • Ability to export reports such as treatment progress scoring
  • Features five operating modes (Guided, Initiated, Step Initiated, Follow Assist and Free) that gradually increase load and movement complexity, which enables treatment of all rehabilitation stages from completely passive to active patients
  • Features a library with a wide range of engaging exercises and games for various rehabilitation objectives, and allows therapists to customize session Improves therapy management by providing accurate assessment and progress

ReoGo™ patient benefits:

Both passive and active patients can benefit and advance to higher levels of functionality through the individualized treatments under the guidance of their therapist.Enhances patient motivation using personalized exercises and engaging games adapted to their individual functional ability, improving their:

  • Range of motion
  • Muscle strength
  • Muscle tone
  • Movement smoothness
  • Accuracy of movements
  • Cognitive functions

Read what patients and therapists say about Motorika
  • The ReoGo™ gives us an opportunity to explore ways of treating the arm that we never had before. It helps train sequence and movement patterns by progressively challenging patients with more complex movements. It’s also very easy to use, and once patients are evaluated and set up they can do the work for themselves.

    Bruce M. Gans, , MD at Executive Vice President and Chief Medical Officer, New Jersey
  • It was amazing–at first the robot showed me the way, but then I have actually moved my hand towards the point almost all by myself . . . I was able to see progress already on my third session

    Vicky , Patient
  • In treating patients after stroke we come across many challenges: How do you teach someone to initiate a motion? How do you teach someone to sequence wrist, shoulder, or elbow motion? How do you give them lots of repetition with lots of variation? The ReoGo™ gives us an opportunity to explore ways of treating the arm that we never had before. It helps train sequence and movement patterns by progressively challenging patients with more complex movements. I think devices like the Reo have great potential to be used in all phases of rehabilitation.

    Susan Ryerson, MA, PT at Noted Researcher and Speaker, National Rehabilitation Hospital, Washington
  • Our outpatient clinic provides physical therapy and occupational therapy for people with stroke, brain injury, Parkinson’s, and other neurological conditions. We’ve found that Motorika’s ReoGo™ is an effective treatment modality for our stroke patients. All patients who participated in the Reo program demonstrated significant improvement on the Fugl-Meyer motor score, improved function and increased strength and control of movement. I enjoy working with ReoGo™ because of the variety of exercises and the ability to adapt to high and low functioning patients. The setup is fairly easy, and patient progress is remarkable. My experience with ReoGo™ and Motorika has been a positive one, and our patients have clearly taken advantage of the system’s benefits
