Live Demos - Sponsored By Ekso Bionics
The area of the show dedicated to providing visitors with the chance to test and use the latest innovative creations changing the face of the neurological world.
The Live Demo Area will host some of the most forward-thinking equipment and services - all created to enhance the coverage and care delivered within the neuro field. With brand new products being launched at this year’s event, each visitor to the area will be given a hands on introduction to each product being showcased.
About The Sponsors
Since 2005, Ekso Bionics has been pioneering the field of robotic exoskeletons, or wearable robots, to augment human strength, endurance and mobility. By designing and creating some of the most forward-thinking and innovative solutions for people looking to augment human capabilities, Ekso Bionics is helping people rethink current physical limitations and achieve the remarkable.
Wednesday 7th and Thursday 8th June
12.00 - Cyclone Mobility REHABILITATION WITHOUT LIMITS: FUNCTIONAL ELECTRICAL STIMULATION ASSISTED WALKING WITH COMPLETE PARAPLEGIA
This workshop will explore how the Xcite (Restorative Therapies, Baltimore, MD) can provide the framework and patterns for functional electrical dtimulation (FES) derived gait in complete paraplegia.
The aim is to change perceptions of what can be achieved by those with complete paraplegia and demonstrate the potential of multichannel FES therapy. We will discuss the patient requirements for success, the pattern of muscle activation built into the Xcite before demonstrating the gait pattern in an individual with a complete spinal cord injury at the level of T10.
13.00 - Saebo INTRODUCING THE SAEBOVR – VIRTUAL ADL REHAB SYSTEM
Saebo are excited to be launching their new SaeboVR at this year’s European Neuro Convention.
This presentation will highlight the features and benefits of this new Virtual Reality ADL (activities of daily living) system.
14.00 - Anatomical Concepts (UK) Ltd VIBRAMOOV - EARLY REHABILITATION THROUGH FUNCTIONAL PROPRIOCEPTIVE STIMULATION
This session will demonstrate the concept and potential of functional Proprioceptive Stimulation in early stage neurological rehabilitation.
Many neurological impairments (such as stroke, incomplete spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, cerebral palsy, MS and Parkinson’s disease) can dramatically affect our ability to move at will and they disturb our sense of “connection” to, and awareness of, our limbs. Awareness of limb position (proprioception) is impaired. Vibramoov aims to preserve and re-establish the coordination between active movement and the related neurosensory information.
15.00 - Ekso Bionics Europe GmbH FUNCTIONAL REHABILITATION OF THE MOTOR IMPAIRED UTILISING THE EKSO GT
The live demonstration will showcase Smart Assist and all its functional capabilities from pre-gait through to trajectory free, highlighting the full versatility of Ekso GT in the clinical setting.
