Verticalizer Erigo - an innovative system that allows to start early rehabilitation of bedridden patients.
How does it work?
Bedridden patient shift in the verticalizer and fixed in such position when his legs straightened and ready to vertical load. Angle of inclination and the time of standing of the patient gradually growing. In addition, Erigo equipped with a system that simulates walking. Linear drives cause the patient's legs in motion. At the same time, the load can be adjusted.
Why do we need verticalizer?
The fact is that when the person in vertical position, redistribution of blood occurs in the body. For the patient, who was a long time in the horizontal position, it is fraught with dizziness and fainting. This system allows you to put a person in a vertical position slowly, giving his body a chance to adjust to such position. Special springs, which create pressure on the foot, simulate real steps, and thereby provoking impulses to the brain, causes the body to "remember" what is the walking. Flexion movements in the joints helps the patient body to adapt much faster, due to the stimulation of blood flow in the body.
What effect to expect from Erigo system?
Verticalizer Erigo helps to recover walking skills after spinal or head injuries, strokes. Prevents pressure ulcers, stagnation in the lungs, problems in the cardiovascular system, muscle atrophy and contractures of the limbs. And, what is the most important, this system allows us the possibility of an early start of rehabilitation and helps the patient to avoid psychological stress, which is usually accompanied by bedridden patients.
