E-LINK for Clinical Rehabilitation
Designed for active and active resistive upper extremity exercise of the wrist, forearm, elbow, and shoulder.
E-LINK Evaluation and Exercise
The MyoMeter allows the user to quantify the force applied during manual muscle testing (MMT). This is a procedure for the evaluation of the function and strength of individual muscles and muscle groups based on the effective performance of a movement in relation to the forces of gravity and manual resistance.
I was admitted into hospital for two weeks with weakness in both legs… E- LINK helped me… It was a lot of hard work but it also made getting better fun and a lot easier to do…I’m thankful because it helped me get back to walking.
I frequently use the spade grip on the upper limb exerciser to work on triceps and scapula setting in higher level patients, adding in gym balls or wobble cushions and playing with the distance from the kit height, and angle. The most fantastic aspect is how long patients will persevere because of the games.
We have been seeing a man with CIDP…infusions of immunoglobulin…Using the E-LINK the OTs have managed to track the peaks and lows in strength and agility pre and post these infusions. The patient uses this data with his consultant in order to judge dosage and or frequency of treatment correctly. The patient has found this very valuable for the past 3 years.
…after one session with the Myo-EX, a significant improvement was visible and he (the patient) was very pleased…It was a great result in a very short space of time and we continue the sessions.
He (the patient) is not alone in benefitting from the Myo-EX for scapula setting. It remains our most successful method of raising awareness in scapula control, we can achieve more in 1 session than in several sessions using alternative methods.
Concentrating on the game rather than the limb helps me to trigger my grasp and release more subconsciously.
I’ve been using the large AngleX with a patient that has had a proximal row carpectomy. I was really pleased with it as we have been advised to encourage flexion/extension but without using any resistance. The patient was really pleased with it as well.
…we discovered together that her (the patient) main problem is actually more the subtle control of her mid range. I am not sure any other treatment method would have discovered this element of the problem and it has taken us in a new treatment direction.
