Theratrainer equipment is a technological device widely used by the elderly, which allows preventing falls as well as re-educate balance, proprioception, strengthen and achieve postural control, work on muscle strength in upper limbs, prevent muscle contractures in the lower ones, and train in the activities of daily life.

The principle of training repetitive motor patterns associated with the increase in the quality of movement, facilitates motor relearning. The possibilities of movement provide sensory, motor, and cognitive stimuli.

This equipment has an evaluative and therapeutic activity development software and is indicated for the elderly who can walk with some kind of help but who have little strength and resistance. They allow you to exercise your legs and torso.

Digitrainer is a hand and finger motor and sensory therapy device. It mobilizes the fingers with limited degrees of movement and helps treat high muscle tone.

Its principal attractiveness is based on a combination of movement, pressure, and vibration. The vibration promotes the perception of blood circulation on the hands and fingers, in addition, the Digitrainer stretches and massages each finger in an oscillating motion while fixing them with gentle pressure.

It has many therapeutic benefits such as:

  • Rehabilitation of natural movement sequences, Therapy for hand dysfunctions.
  • Decreased muscle tone (reduces spasticity).
  • Treatment of muscle shortening, Mobilization of plegic fingers.
  • Activation of sensory perception.

The Motomed is used in neurology especially for tone regulation, mobilization, as well as for the maintenance and reformation of the muscular system allowing a daily, smooth, and safe movement for the patients.

At The Panama Clinic, we offer the:
