Back Pain Therapy and Prevention: ValedoMotion

vm_TheMatOverview

Using wireless senor technology, therapists can now use a game-like environment to help improve patients’ motor control and movement awareness.

How it works (from the corporate website:) “Wireless sensors attached to the patient’s skin transfer even the smallest movements of the trunk and pelvis into a motivating game-like environment. The visualization of movements in real-time provides excellent feedback to patients and therapists and supports the education of correct movement patterns…Therapy with the ValedoMotion is therefore suitable for a wide range of patients. It includes non-specific back pain as well as general muscular deficits of the trunk, malalignment of the spine (e.g. kyphosis, scoliosis) or neurological conditions such as stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, or Parkinson’s disease.” Find out more at: http://www.hocoma.com/en/products/valedo-concept/valedomotion/
