Replan

REAplan® is an innovative robotic medical device for the rehabilitation of the upper limbs of children and adults suffering from motor impairments, firstly dedicated to brain-injured patients. It allows an interactive mobilization in the horizontal plane of the arm of patients, such as the victims of stroke, the hemi-negligent patients, spinal cord injured patients, but also children with cerebral palsy.

Technologies

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.

Treated Pathologies

Stroke
A stroke is a disease that occurs as a result of a problem in the arteries of the brain. Two types of stroke differentiate from each other: for the ischemic stroke, a cerebral artery is obstructed because of the presence of a blood clot, whereas in the hemorrhagic stroke, a rupture of the artery is usually caused by an arterial hypertension. 15 million people are exposed to stroke every year in the world. More than 50% of survivors will have a long-term disability.
A stroke can cause the loss of upper limbs motricity. REAplan® provides an early support during the patient care, and thus promotes a phenomenon of cortical reorganization, called cerebral plasticity, which will occur around the lesion, allowing a motor re-learning for the patient.

Cerebral palsy
Cerebral palsy is a non-progressive motor disorder associated with a brain injury occurring in the antenatal, perinatal or in the months following the birth.

It is a non-hereditary and non-progressive pathological condition with various neurological impairments. An exact cause is not always found, but it is related to prematurity, perinatal hypoxia, brain trauma and neonatal jaundice. The degree of neurological injury is severe in one third of cases and moderate in one-sixth of the cases.
The sequellar motor handicap consists of various degrees of movement and posture disorders. It may be associated with specific difficulties of higher functions, with disturbances of the attention, of the language, and with perceptual difficulties (hearing, vision) hampering school learning.
REAplan® promotes the mobilization of the upper limbs of these children through a playful and immersive work in an amplitude adapted to the morphology of this population.
