  • Description

    With therapeutic “forced exercise” movement the lower extremities of Parkinson’s patients get moved noticeably faster than the symptoms of their disease would normally allow them to do.

    A group of researchers (Ridgel et al, 2009) from the US found that movement speeds of up to 90 rpm help to improve Parkinson-related symptoms. Moreover, a significant improvement of the finger’s fine motor skills about 30% could be measured.

    Regular movement therapy in combination with medicine is the basis for the latest Parkinson’s therapy. The MOTOmed viva2 Parkinson has a software-controlled motor, which enables a movement training with high revolution speed.

    Parkinson patients can either train passively or actively with own muscle strength. Therapy sessions with the MOTOmed viva2 Parkinson can have positive effects on gait ability, balance, akinesia, fine motor skills and posture. Regular therapy training with the MOTOmed viva2 Parkinson also helps to improve Parkinson-related symptoms such as tremor (trembling muscles) and rigor(stiff muscles).
