The Johanniter-Ordenshäuser rehabilitation center in Bad Oeynhausen is using Reha Technology’s G-EO gait trainer for cutting-edge treatment

Team of therapists at Johanniter-Ordenshäuser

In future, neurology patients at the Johanniter-Ordenshäuser rehabilitation center in Bad Oeynhausen will be treated with a cutting edge robot-assisted gait therapy system. The G-EO, model L, which is part of Reha Technology’s G-EO systems family, will enable the center’s highly qualified therapists to provide patients with treatment which is even more specific, effective and tailored to their individual patient’s requirements and abilities. This will improve the quality and cost-effectiveness of the treatment available at the center. 

Reha Technology AG is a pioneer in the field of robot-assisted gait therapy used for neurorehabilitation. For years, the company has based its technology around the electromechanical end-effector principle. Reha Technology can look back on over 10 successful years of developing and perfecting all the key elements required for high performance, high quality and sustainable therapy with the G-EO system family.

G-EO, model „L“

The G-EOL model – the „L“ stands for Level Walking – can be used to provide performance-based therapy at a very early stage for a wide range of neurological pathologies. The modular nature of the system helps therapists to tailor objectives and the entire therapy process to individual patients. It also means that the system can be used to treat a wide range of patients. The intensity and repetitive nature of robot-assisted gait training leads to positive neuroplastic changes in the central nervous system of patients. The ability to reproduce high-quality and high-intensity therapy at short intervals represents a significant upgrade for both therapists and patients. The G-EO has clearly improved the cost-effectiveness of a wide range of treatment plans by making them more effective and providing time savings. “We are very proud that our neurology patients will have access to therapy using one of the most advanced robot-assisted gait trainers available. The ability to reproduce high-quality and high-intensity therapy with the G-EO gait robot represents a significant and sustainable upgrade for both therapists and patients” emphasized Michael Schelp, Commercial Manager for Johanniter-Ordenshäuser Bad Oeynhausen. 

The intensity and repetitive nature of robot-assisted gait training leads to positive neuroplastic changes in the central nervous system of patients, while also improving their strength and endurance. The high quality and performance-based therapy provided for neurology patients at the Johanniter Ordenshäusern will be enhanced by the unique ability to make ongoing changes to important parameters like cadence, step length, step height and ankle angle without interrupting therapy. The body weight system can also be set to be dynamic or static during gait therapy. The G-EO, model L“, includes a feature which makes it possible to adjust the hip guide on three planes using a back cushion with a cable guide – frontal (belly/back, electrical), sagittal (left/right, mechanical) and transverse (top/bottom, electrical) – to optimize hip and body positioning.The Johanniter Ordenshäuser rehabilitation center will use the advanced G-EO robot-assisted gait trainer from Reha Technology to provide the best possible day-to-day gait therapy for neurology patients, with a focus on cutting-edge technology, cost-effectiveness and efficiency.

Reha Technology launches the latest generation of its «G-EOS » robot-assisted gait trainer

The market introduction of the simplified construction and functionally improved base model, the «G-EOL», in October 2018 is now followed by the launch of the «G-EOS», the latest generation from the successful and unique
Reha Technology system line of robot-assisted gait trainers employing the end-effector principle. The «G-EOS» is the top model in the system line and stands out for its unrivaled diversity of 6 gait training trajectories geared to
the needs of everyday life, such as forwards and backwards walking on level ground, walking on slopes, climbing and descending stairs, as well as 3 activity modes for patient support: passive, active-assistive and active.
