Neuromuscular Rehabilitation Equipment


Kinetic Muscles, Inc. has developed an exercise therapy device to be used mostly by stroke patients to retrain the brain to regain motion in the limbs. The Hand Mentor encourages a patient to extend their wrist and fingers as much as possible on their own. When maximum self-extension is achieved, the Mentor will engage a pneumatic actuator which then assists with the movement to full extension. Cycle rates, length of motion and force of operation can be programmed into the unit. Kinetic Muscles utilizes Clippard ES electronic valves on a special manifold in the Mentor.
