SilverFit Compact Brings Rehabilitation into Patients' Homes
The SilverFit Compact is a portable system that allows patients to do all the exercises available with the SilverFit virtual rehabilitation system from the comfort of their own home.
The SilverFit Compact is a portable rehabilitation system designed to enhance therapy by enabling patients to do all the exercises that are available with the SilverFit system at home. SilverFit uses computer-based games to immerse patients in virtual worlds to motivate them to keep performing therapeutic tasks while it monitors their movements to ensure that these tasks are performed correctly.
The compact system uses a computer and a 3D camera to achieve the same goals, but offers more flexibility to patients and therapists as it can be used anywhere. The system can assist with the rehabilitation of stroke patients, amputees, patients with limb fractures, knee and hip arthroplasty, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and fragile seniors. It offers strength training and mobilizing exercises for the arms and legs, improves patients' ability to sit and stand, and helps patients with balance issues, as well as those who have difficulty walking with or without an aid.
The SilverFit Compact was developed to support patients by helping them train independently, outside the hospital setting, and to reduce the amount of time spent in bed rest. It is very convenient for patients who cannot come to the rehabilitation facility, as it allows therapists to bring the rehabilitation to them and to monitor their progress and results.
The system delivers faster results and shortens the rehabilitation period by offering multiple training sessions every day. The system's alarm function reminds patients to do the therapeutic exercises, while the video gaming element improves therapy adherence. Each exercise is preceded by a short video with instructions and the system also offers verbal assistance during training. Patients' scores are stored after each session, allowing patients and therapists to review the results at all times.
The exercises available with the SilverFit Compact can be selected by therapists and patients together, and adapted to patients' physical and cognitive abilities. They can also be customized at any time to reflect patients' progress. The system offers a wide range of options for customization, allowing users to set different exercise programs each day to keep training sessions interesting and varied, and to facilitate the rehabilitation process by always keeping patients engaged in their recovery.
