SENIOR LIVING & LONG TERM CARE
By promoting physical activity and exercise, THERA-Trainer can help patients maintain their independence, reduce their risk of falling and improve their overall health and well-being.
As people get older, or suffer a disability, the creeping awareness that everything no longer works as it should catches up with them. Many people in senior housing and long-term care have limited mobility. Uncertainty when walking and the risk of falling become part of the daily routine. The problem includes not only the ability to move independently from place to place, but also functions such as physical and cognitive strength. With THERA-Trainer, those in need of care can take their fitness to a new level and improve their quality of life.
Technology plays a significant role in promoting physical fitness in senior living and long term care. Our advanced cycling and balance training exercise systems are perfectly suited to help patients struggling due to physical weakness, pain, coordination issues, neurological, orthopedic or cardiopulmonary challenges. By combining innovative technologies with clinical protocols and therapeutic approaches, we offer customisable evidence-based programs.
The highly efficient, interactive training device which improves mental and physical performance and reduces the risk of falls. The solution for testing and training cognitive-motor skills.
The motor-assisted stationary e-bike for legs and upper body – a reliable therapeutic „workhorse“ for passive, assisted and active cycling in any setting from clinic to home care.
The small and portable motor-assisted stationary e-bike for legs and upper body – specially designed for flexible use in clinical settings and home care.
The versatile active dynamic balance trainer. Ideally suited to the needs of people able to stand, but with increased fall risk, who suffer from balance and coordination disorders.
Paraplegic after swimming accident
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.

Effective balance training in rehabilitation is of great importance for regaining maximum independence and mobility in everyday life.

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.
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.

Additional dynamic-assisted standing training is safe and easy to perform with subacute stroke patients.
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.

It’s nice to be standing at full body height again. The rehab days in the clinic are exhausting. But giving up is not an option.

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.
Worldwide, doctors, therapists and, most importantly, patients rely on THERA-Trainer’s unique rehabilitation solutions. Here are some of our trusted partners.
