Healing Innovations has announced the completion of the first pilot for its new Rise&Walk InClinic technology at Shepherd Center in Atlanta, USA. The pilot included the technology’s different use cases and gathered session data including clinician and patient feedback.
Healing innovations state that the Rise&Walk InClinic is a robotic neurorehabilitation technology that targets muscle groups important for walking and facilitates locomotor-related movements to help a wide range of patients recovering from neurological injuries. According to the company, it is the first ever sit-and-stand device that replicates up to three different therapy modalities, giving clinicians more flexibility in a therapy session.
“The Rise&Walk has helped our team facilitate upright lower-extremity motor training with fewer staff than is typically required of some other locomotor-related training activities, while also allowing us to objectively track user progress,” said Rebecca Washburn, manager of Beyond Therapy at the Shepherd Center. “We are excited to continue to partner with Healing Innovations to further support advances in rehabilitation technology.”
“The Rise&Walk enables our team to create intensive and engaging training sessions that are in keeping with the aims and objectives of our program,” said Nicholas Evans, lead exercise physiologist in Beyond Therapy. “Individuals have enjoyed using the Rise&Walk, and we see unique opportunities for integrating the technology into the existing repertoire of motor training and conditioning devices we have to offer.”
“This pilot was an important first step in the introduction of this technology to the rehabilitation community,” said Luke Benda, chief executive officer of Healing Innovations. “The Beyond Therapy team has an incredibly innovative spirit that made them the perfect partner in this initiative.”
