Think and move.

Combining cognitive and motor training.

Every targeted movement is the result of a complex interaction between sensory stimuli and motor execution. This sensitive regulatory circuit can be disrupted by illness, accidents or the aging process – with dramatic effects on the activities of daily life.


Scientific findings show that the combination of cognitive and motor tasks is far superior to purely physical training. This makes senso training highly effective.

What is the minimum activity level for training with the THERA-Trainer senso?

THERA-Trainer senso does not have a fall protection. To be trained with the THERA-Trainer senso, patients should be able to stand safely on two handrails. An indication for training should always first be determined by the physician or therapist and subsequently accompanied.

What are the benefits for patients from exercising with the senso?

The program incorporates various interactive exercises and games that target specific therapeutic goals. Some common therapeutic goals that align with this program:


Motor function improvement: THERA-Trainer senso training may aim to improve coordination, balance, strength, and motor skills through the interactive exercises and activities incorporated in the program.


Cognitive enhancement: THERA-Trainer senso training can focus on improving attention, memory, problem-solving, and decision-making abilities through cognitive training exercises integrated into the program.


Balance and fall prevention: Maintaining balance and stability is crucial for elderly people and individuals with neurological conditions. THERA-Trainer senso training does include exercises specifically designed to improve postural control, balance, and stability in dual tasking situations.


Sensory integration: The THERA-Trainer senso may aim to enhance sensory integration, helping individuals process and respond appropriately to sensory stimuli.


Functional independence: The THERA-Trainer senso training does include exercises that simulate real-life tasks, aiming to improve functional abilities and promote independence in daily living.


Engagement and motivation: Maintaining engagement and motivation throughout the rehabilitation process is essential for progress. THERA-Trainer senso’s interactive nature and game-like elements are designed to increase motivation, participation, and enjoyment during therapy sessions.


It’s important to note that the specific therapeutic goals of the THERA-Trainer senso may vary depending on the individual’s condition, needs, and the recommendations of healthcare professionals. It’s best to consult with a qualified therapist or healthcare provider who can provide more accurate information and tailor the program to the individual’s specific requirements.

How does the senso differ from the other THERA-Trainer Standing & Balancing products?

The THERA-Trainer senso is an interactive stepping plate with a specially developed software for the application of a highly effective cognitive-motor training, which is particularly suitable for fall prevention. In contrast, all other THERA-Trainer Standing & Balancing products are static and dynamic standing frames.

How is the THERA-Trainer senso different from other standing frames on the market?

There are many stepping plates available on the market. However, few training interventions of this kind have been scientifically researched as extensively as senso training. Particularly noteworthy in this context is the software. It features a sophisticated shaping algorithm that adjusts the difficulty of the exercises in real-time to match the patients’ performance level, ensuring that they train at their individual limits. This has a positive effect on motivation and, above all, training outcomes.

How THERA-Trainer senso fits into the THERA-Trainer complete solution concept?

The THERA-Trainer senso can be a valuable component of a THERA-Trainer complete solution in many clinical and non-clinical settings and can be excellently combined with other products from the Standing & Balancing line, as well as with products of our Cycling and Gait line. Explore our Professional Focus Areas to get a better understanding of our Complete Solutions for the lower levels of rehabilitation.


With our THERA-Trainer complete solution, we help you transform our THERA-Trainer devices into an evidence-based, clinically proven treatment concept for lower extremities.

Can the THERA-Trainer senso also be used in combination with therapy devices from other manufacturers?

Of course. Naturally, THERA-Trainer products are perfectly matched in terms of their functionality and interoperability. But they can also be used in combination with other existing equipment or equipment from a different manufacturer. Depending on the specific use case, this may even make sense. We have close collaborations with some manufacturers of other products, which allows you to benefit from special offers and bundled deals. Get in Touch with us. We would be happy to provide information on this and share our experience from customer projects.

What customers say about THERA-Trainer

  • Jürgen Winkler

    From the moment I first started using a wheelchair, the THERA-Trainer has been a constant training device. I first encountered it in the hospital. I then had it prescribed so that I could train at home. In particular I use the cranks for my upper body and arms, so that I can actively maintain and build up my remaining muscles. I try to train with the tigo several times a week.

  • Hannah L.

    I have been using a THERA-Trainer tigo for a number of years now and, after an enforced break due to the pandemic, I can’t wait to use this equipment regularly again.

  • Sabine Lamprecht

    For training upper body strength and endurance and thus also the shoulder muscles and connection to the trunk muscles, training with the THERA-Trainer upper body trainer is recommended on a regular basis.

    Felix Platter Hospital relies on state-of-the-art methods not only in diagnostics, but also in therapy. For several years now, the end-effector gait trainer lyra has been used in gait rehabilitation, allowing therapists and patients to benefit from the advantages of modern gait rehabilitation robotics.

    We are delighted to be one of the first facilities in Austria providing therapy with the lyra. The implementation of end effector robotics is an important step in the overall care of our patients and enables state-of-the-art gait rehabilitation.

    The option to work statically, as a pure standing device, or dynamically, as a balance trainer, allows an individual adaptation of the training situation to the respective daily condition and the therapy progress of the patient.

  • Inga Braming
    Physiotherapist, Managing Director therapy center Rhein Erft

    star_rating star_rating star_rating star_rating star_rating

    We have coma patients that we put in the dynamic standing trainer. Maybe a bit unusual, but very interesting! Because especially when we bring these patients into the verticalization very important stimuli are given.

  • Hannah L.

    As a powered wheelchair user, the tigo helps me to move both my arms and legs and improve my strength and fitness. When I use it, I can feel my heart rate being raised and I am hoping that it will allow me to regain some of the mobility I have recently lost. The number of adjustments mean that people with many different levels of ability can use a THERA-Trainer. This is adaptive and accessible fitness for all the family!

    The intervention with the BALANCE-Trainer system is well feasible for stroke patients living at home. The training can show an improvement in balance and mobility.
