With the REAlab software, the REAplan® system allows nursing staff to program and manage a session of exercises adapted to each patient, using an intuitive interface, or to follow the evolution of the latter during successive exercises.
This software also includes algorithms that define and control the interaction between the device and the patient. These algorithms allow to assist the patient according to his own deficiencies and motor performances.
Indeed, this assistance adapts according to the kinematic performances specifically measured during the completion of the exercises. Ultimately, the purpose of this interaction is to allow the patient to perform movements repeatedly.
These movements are oriented towards a goal which has a meaning for the patient, and this, according to different modes of operation adapted to the different stages of the motor recovery of the latter.
Indeed, the patient can be assisted by the device according to the following 3 modes:
Active, corresponding to assistance that helps him to stay on a trajectory. In this mode, the patient does not receive any assistance to progress along it,
Activo-passive, corresponding to an assistance which helps him to stay on a trajectory and to progress along the latter,
Passive, corresponding to total assistance. In this mode, the device performs all of the movements, completely driving the patient member with it.
To enhance motor recovery, the REAplan® technology also provides the patient with an audiovisual feedback on a large screen. This allows an equivalence of scale between the movement made by the patient and the visual feedback.
