For safe and feasible training with the THERA-Trainer tigo, patients must at least be mobilized into a wheelchair. An indication for training should always first be determined by the physician or therapist and subsequently accompanied.
The therapy goals that are usually pursued with the THERA-Trainer tigo can vary depending on the individual needs and abilities of the patient. However, here are some typical therapy goals that are targeted with the THERA-Trainer tigo:
Improving mobility: the THERA-Trainer tigo can be used to improve patients’ ability to move. This includes strengthening muscles, improving joint mobility, and promoting coordination and balance.
Restoring motor function: following a stroke, spinal cord injury or other neurological condition, THERA-Trainer tigo can be used to restore motor skills. This may include the ability to perform certain movements, such as reaching for objects or walking.
Increasing endurance: The THERA-Trainer tigo can be used to improve patients’ cardiovascular fitness and endurance. Targeted training on the device can improve physical performance and increase resilience.
Increasing strength: The THERA-Trainer tigo can also be used for resistance training to improve patients’ muscle strength.
Spasticity and Pain management: For patients with spasticity and chronic pain, the THERA-Trainer tigo can be used to provide exercise therapy that can help to relieve. Controlled movements and targeted training can relax muscles and reduce pain.
Promoting independence in everyday life: An important therapy goal with the THERA-Trainer tigo is to promote independence and autonomy in everyday life. This can include improving the ability to get around independently, perform daily activities such as dressing or cooking, and improving overall quality of life.
However, it is important to note that therapy goals are tailored to the individual patient and should be determined in consultation with the treating therapist.
The THERA-Trainer tigo is the ultimate workhorse for training in the clinical setting, in the care setting and for training at home. The tigo can be used to exercise exclusively in a seated position. This is the main difference to the THERA-Trainer bemo, which is specifically designed for training in a lying or semi-lying position. Compared to the THERA-Trainer mobi, the particularly light, compact trainer in the Cycling product line, the tigo is more powerful and can be more individually configured.
The THERA-Trainer tigo is an extremely powerful and safe medical device. This distinguishes the trainer from many low-cost alternatives available on the market. In addition, the tigo has specific biofeedback-controlled training programs and, in combination with the THERA-soft, can even be combined with therapeutic games in virtual worlds. And the best part? The THERA-Trainer tigo is extremely powerful and easy to use. Setup takes less than a minute and passive, assistive or active training can begin immediately – A difference that is noticeable in daily routine.
The THERA-Trainer tigo 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 Cycling line, as well as with products of our Standing & Balancing and Gait line.

Hospital virus after a knee operation with pneumonia in both lungs and artificial coma
When I was allowed to go home after rehabilitation, I was able to use a THERA-Trainer right away. I exercised with the device two or three times a day and after a short time I was able to walk on my own again. As a result of the exercise, my condition improved to such an extent that I no longer required the artificial oxygen supply.
Physical Therapist, MSc. Neurorehabilitation
Training on an active-passive movement trainer, such as the THERA-Trainer, trains the foot lifter, hip flexor and quadriceps muscle in a targeted manner and is therefore a specific, useful training for MS patients in all stages of the disease, not only for contracture prophylaxis and spasticity reduction.
Physical Therapist, MSc. Neurorehabilitation
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.
