Effective Gait Training

The Hocoma Lokomat® is a robot-assisted training device supporting patients in a parachute harness while moving their legs on a treadmill. This technology creates a smooth repetitive motion helping to stimulate areas of the spinal cord that control the ability to walk.

Intenstive Rehabilitation Training

Robot-assisted therapy enables effective and intensive training to increase the strength of muscles and the range of motion of joints in order to improve walking.

Most Physiological Movement

The physiological movement of the lower extremities is ensured by the individually adjustable patient interface. Additionally, the hip and knee joint angles can be adjusted during training to the patient’s specific needs.

Optimal Patient Challenge

During rehabilitation, patients need to be challenged. Therapists can help patients reach their goals by setting the training parameters according to their performance.

Patients are motivated to reach their goals with various game-like exercises.

This Augmented Performance Feedback (APF) maximizes the effect of Lokomat training. Studies have shown when using APF, muscle activation can be considerably increased.

Increased Efficiency

The Lokomat® allows therapists to focus on the patient and the actual therapy. It enhances staff efficiency and safety, leading to higher training intensity, more treatments per therapist, and consistent, superior patient care.
