The SportsArt E872 ICARE Rehabilitation System is designed to provide zero, partial, or full-body weight support and motor guidance for assistive rehabilitation exercises for those recovering from conditions that impact neuromuscular function such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, and others. The combination of the motor-assisted movement elliptical-style exercise unit, harness-based unloading lift, and ramp for convenient accessibility provides customizable and effective exercise for a variety of users.
The SportsArt E872 ICARE Rehabilitation System was developed at the Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital and Research Institute in Lincoln, Nebraska. The intelligently controlled, motor-assisted leg movements closely mimic the kinematic and electromyographic (EMG) patterns of walking. Noted in development studies, ICARE training can help individuals regain or retain walking and fitness in part because muscle and cardiorespiratory training demands can be customized to the unique needs of individuals during rehab and following discharge. Special focus was applied during development to ensure assistance, with partial body weight support and motor guidance of moveable footplates and reciprocating handles, allowing individuals to accomplish the required repetitions. This fully integrated system provides a safe, effective method for assisting patients with neuromuscular disorders resulting from stroke, TBI, SCI, and other injuries or conditions. The controlled assistive rehab design relieves a single clinician from hours of strenuous manual manipulation and expands patient access to assistive technology, allowing them to improve their walking and cardiovascular fitness.
The elliptical-style exercise features adjustable levels of assistance, speed, and step length to tailor the movement to the patient's ability and comfort. The unique MyFlex™ pedal cushioning system creates a comfortable workout platform, and the cushioned pedals with foot straps provide secure support. The lift holds the user in place as the motor-assisted movement facilitates training. This provides a comfortable, safe means of rehabilitation and significantly reduces the risk of injuries. The harness-based lift holds users comfortably in place during training. The harness is available in a wide range of sizes for a secure fit, including X-Small up to 5X-Large. These sizes can accommodate waist measurements of 24 inches to 60 inches, ensuring that the system can be used by nearly any patient. The ramp system allows easy access to the system and is especially useful for patients who transfer onto the system from a wheelchair. Other features include a forward and reverse motor, automatically adjustable adaptive motor assistance, single or dual-leg training options, fingertip controls, dual action motion, remote control, passcode control, infrared safety system, electronically controlled pneumatic height, and an adjustable seat. The SportsArt ICARE Rehabilitation System is available for both home and clinical use.
