E-LINK is a computerized graded exerciser utilizing activities for therapeutic use. The activities may be controlled by a variety of devices, depending upon the patient's physical and cognitive status.
All E-LINK exercise Activities have screens that allow the baseline movement or muscle activity to be measured. This measurement is then used to define the parameters for exercise in the Activity set-up screens.
The latest E-LINK software version has up to 24 Activities. Designed to be used with all the E-LINK exercise Modules – E4000, M600, H500 and FP3 – the activities have eye-catching graphics and are easy to set up. Additionally, a number of the Activities have multi-axial options specifically designed for maximizing balance rehabilitation using the E-LINK Dual-Axis ForcePlate System.
The legacy toolbar makes all the older activities easy to access, giving the user greater flexibility in selecting and grading the therapeutic exercises. The set-up of the legacy Activities has been redesigned and all the activities are grouped by primary type for ease of use.
The Activities are designed for a wide variety of clinical applications. Simple basic activities are appropriate for patients with neurological involvement such as early stroke rehabilitation and for pediatrics. More complex and challenging activities are used as the patient progresses and for orthopedic rehabilitation.
