Injury or damage to one side of the brain commonly leads to hemiplegia or weakness on one half of the body. Individuals with severe weakness of the arm cannot participate in rehabilitation, which can lead to muscle stiffness and complications such as contracture and progressive upper limb deformity.
The mirrored motion Bimanual Arm Trainer (BAT) permits individuals, even those with severe weakness, to move their weak arms via the device. The device can be easily adjusted to the person’s height, arm length, and shoulder width.
