This therapy is carried out using a special electronically-controlled device. It has a special anti-spasm function and takes advantage of the alternating phases of muscle movements. The machine applies dynamic movement to the lower and upper limbs. In cases of minimal muscle movement, an electric motor can assist. The advantage of the device is that it can record any active movement which the person makes through their own strength, thus progress can be monitored. The anti-spasm function works by stopping and automatically moving back, thereby resulting in dissolution of the spasm and a reduced frequency of spastic complications. The treatment results in the strengthening of muscles, better mobilisation of joints and the self-reliance of the guest. It is used in conjunction with ergo-therapy, the rehabilitation path and other types of physiotherapy treatments.
