Depending on the condition of the body, initially weight unloaded as much as possible (for example, a person with weight 80 kg at the beginning of rehabilitation uses a load on a limbs just 15 kg, the rest weight holding by Locomat), but with time the load increases to improve the effectiveness of rehabilitation.
Trainings have a different duration (it determines the physical therapist or rehabilitation specialist). In many clinics during the training are using computer games (patient not just walks, but performs the tasks, passes levels), making such occupations emotionally more comfortable.
Components of the complex:
- special treadmill;
- body weight regulation system (load control);
- robotic orthosis (mechanisms that controls the movement of the body);
