New equipment at Bellerive

At the beginning of the active rehabilitation of upper limbs, assistance is required to do extremely intense exercises. Using a robot provides a real benefit.

The technology is based on virtual reality exercises. As they play, the patient interacts with their movements and realises their day-to-day progress. The occupational therapist may adapt the difficulty of the exercises.
