By unlocking the pin and attaching the rigid adjustable ROM/Flexibility Straps, the Gener-8® allows for controlled active assistive range of motion as the patient applies as little or as much force into flexion, and passively returning to the extension position. In addition, it allows for upper body exercise simultaneously and/or variable angle co-contraction isometrics if the protocol or patient chooses.
The Gener-8® allows for guided active range of motion to as little or as much motion as tolerated.
The Gener-8® provides multilevel Resistive ROM ranging from very light to heavy resistance stimulating co-contraction of quadriceps, hamstring and gluteal activation minimizing tibial translation.
The engineered patented graded multi-axial hinge joint, allows for minimal to maximal “free play” in the device, as the patient’s joint moves in PROM, AAROM, AROM or Resistive modes. The light sensors provide feedback in order for the patient to react to the stimulus to stabilize the joint.
The electromagnetic sensors pick up ROM stops and alert patient when they have reached their goal. In addition, the proprioceptive sensors guide the patient to train motion control and joint position awareness.
Unlike any other CPM, the Gener-8® is designed for active use in a seated position from almost any chair allowing the patient to be up sooner from their bed and in a more comfortable position. However, it is still versatile enough to be used from a bed or supine position.
The Gener-8® provides progressive passive knee extension at various force levels utilizing adjustable band tension technology.
Never before has there been a more important time to effectively, safely and conveniently connect patients with their medical professionals. The Patient Monitoring APP allows telemonitoring to take place, as well as, collect real time patient data used by their Virtual Medical Professional to recommend next course in patient’s treatment. This is accomplished all while improving outcomes, patient satisfaction and lowering costs.
It takes the patient investing many hours, over many days to rehab their way back to a positive outcome. This process becomes much easier as the patient is encouraged by tracking the progress they’re making.
Weeks of rehabbing can become quite emotional and exhausting. Patients realize without following their surgeon’s protocol, outcomes will be compromised. However, seeing is believing, and the various data points collected will bring to life just how much the patient is improving. These data points include, goals achieved, time spent rehabbing, range of motion, reps and pain level.
Knowledge is power, and with data captured over the course of patient’s rehab, will allow all involved to assess outcomes. The data collected is identified and will bring into focus not just theories believed to effectively rehab but will now quantifiably provide these answers.
