Neurological Gait Trainer

NTB-Robotics has developed together with the ZHdK, the ZHAW and ABILITY Switzerland AG (today medica Medizintechnik GmbH) a gait trainer that is revolutionizing the interaction between man and machine in the neurological gait training. The machine can understand what the patient wants to do and will react as interactive teacher, according to the abilities of the patient. The product Lyra sets the activity of the patient at the center of training and brings people quickly back on their feet.

Approaches to successful learning of movement are:

  • Frequent repetition of movement
  • Motivation of the learne
  • Active learning support
  • Patient-specific interaction
  • Machine informing the patient about his performances
  • Individually variable and verified motion profile
