REHA Technology AG Switzerland Manufactures Only Walking Robot in the
World Capable of Simulating Climbing Stairs
OLTEN, Switzerland, June 14, 2012 /CNW/ - The only neuro-rehabilitation
device in the world capable of simulating climbing stairs in addition
to all other types of walking is now manufactured in series production
by REHA Technology AG in Olten, Switzerland, under the name
"G-EO-System". The CE- and FDA-certified device has been sold globally
since spring this year.
The device is intended to assist patients affected by stroke,
craniocerebral injury, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, or
paraplegia, in a novel and highly effective way to re-learn his/her own
motor function. The product adapts in a completely dynamic and
continuously variable way to the patient's needs and reduces the
physical strain on the therapist.
The first few devices have already been used successfully in some
rehabilitation centres. Prof Esquenazi, M.D., head of one of the most
prominent rehabilitation centres in the United States - the "MossRehab"
in Philadelphia - found in his study a significantly faster full
recovery in patients using the "G-EO-System". Further studies from
Italy and Germany also support the efficacy for the patient, the cost
saving for the health insurances, and the physical relief for the
The neuro-rehabilitation device "G-EO-System" was developed by an
international team of medical doctors, engineers, therapists,
technicians, and software specialists over a period of five years.
These professionals recognized early on that stroke patients and
certain trauma patients require more support than the traditional
treadmills and that electronically controlled devices help them to
utilise a significantly greater potential for a speedy recovery.
The demand for technological electronic devices to support
recovery-centred therapy has increased exponentially since 2000.
Product sales have already started in industrialised countries. The
awareness of these devices continues to increase day by day. REHA
Technology AG has secured the patent rights for the "G-EO-System" and
is already taking steps to extend its distributor network.
