Wireless E-LINK - for Freedom of Movement
The NEW wireless Dongle (DG1) enables E-LINK to be used as a complete stand-alone wireless system.
Alternatively, wireless E-LINK can be incorporated into existing E-LINK systems used by thousands of customers worldwide – for example, a customer wishing to have the additional benefits of the wireless Myo-EX and AngleX sensors (Exercise Kit M800) may use the wireless Dongle simultaneously with the Upper Limb Exerciser E3000 that uses a serial port interface to the computer or even the ForcePlates that use the X4 InterX Unit as the USB interface to the Computer. More information about E-LINK combinations can be found by clicking here.
Connected to the USB port on the host computer, the Dongle can communicate with up to 5 wireless E-LINK sensors – for example, the Myo-EX sensor, AngleX sensor and 3 Adaptors.
The Dongle, combined with one or more Adaptors, enable existing E-LINK devices to be used wirelessly.
The wireless Adaptor (AD1) is used with the wireless Dongle (DG1) for the following modules:
- Hand Kit H500 (Dynamometer G200 and Pinchmeter P200)
- Upper Limb Exerciser E4000
- Range of Motion Kit R500 (small Goniometer N300 and large Goniometer N400)
- ForcePlate FP3
Up to 5 Adaptors may be used with one Dongle.
It may prove advantageous to have multiple Adaptors set up with various E-LINK devices at one workstation in a busy clinic setting.
AngleX sensors respond to active joint movement – even as little as 5 degrees – and combined with E-LINK Activities, provide focused exercise against gravity. The small sensor is used for small hand joints and the larger sensor for larger body joints.
- The NEW wireless AngleX sensors communicate direct with the Dongle and are quickly and easily attached to the skin surface with medical tape, distal to the joint to be exercised
- The NEW wireless large AngleX (NC6) sensor allows the user to easily change from one plane of movement to another without having to reposition the sensor. For example – changing from forearm rotation exercise to elbow flexion/extension exercise requires changing the checkbox in the assessment screen rather than repositioning the actual sensor
- The NEW small AngleX (NC5) sensor is tethered to the large sensor, keeping the sensor as lightweight as possible to avoid undue pressure on painful joints. The software automatically detects connection of the small AngleX
- With no wires the NEW AngleX sensors greatly increase the freedom of movement for the patient to exercise
- Plus, the patient can exercise even when at some distance from the computer screen which is particularly beneficial for shoulder or leg exercise
The wireless AngleX sensors are part of the NEW wireless Exercise Kit M800.
Highly sensitive Myo-EX (GX5) sensors use surface EMG for inspiring exercise, beginning from when there is the tiniest flicker of voluntary muscle activity, with or without visible joint movement. The same sensor can be used throughout the full spectrum of muscular activity and rehabilitation, even to that of the professional athlete.
- The NEW wireless Myo-EX (GX5) communicates direct with the Dongle
- The sensor is quickly and easily attached to the skin surface with medical tape, directly over the muscle to be exercised
- Biofeedback is immediate to the patient and muscular exercise is focused through playing gradable innovative E-LINK Activities
The wireless Myo-EX (GX5) sensor is part of the NEW wireless Exercise Kit M800.
