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 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.
Higher motivation results in better learning. The Bimanual Arm Trainer increases motivation via video gaming and goal-driven feedback that encourages users to focus on the task at hand and the progress they are experiencing.
The cost of the BAT by Mirrored Motion Works is $22,500 (not including computer which is required for video gaming). For facilities that provide stroke therapy, the price of the Bimanual Arm Trainer enables the purchase of multiple devices for a fraction of the cost of any current robotic device that assists in the movement of a weak arm.
