The number of people aged 65 and over is increasing at a rate of 870,000 per month. More than half of this population are treated for 5 or more chronic illnesses and also have 1 or more limitations in activities of daily living (ADLs), such as walking.
Only 39% of adults aged 65 and older are getting the recommended amount of weekly physical activity (30 or minutes of moderate-intensity activity 5 days per week, or 20 minutes of vigorous-intensity activity 3 days per week).
Researchers reported that participation in an exercise program was significantly associated with fewer hospital admissions, lower health care costs (up to 20 %), and lower risk of depression.
IF THE SENIOR POPULATION IS HEALTHIER, FITTER, AND MORE MOBILE THEN THIS IS GOING TO GREATLY REDUCE THE BURDEN ON THESE SERVICES.
Our business focused on manufacturing and distribution of an innovative product for elderly people with impairments of neuromuscular and skeletal functions due to age-related diseases such as osteoarthritis, chronic pain, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, etc.
Our proposal is a new conception of «Fitness for Elderly» for the home market.
Our product is a patented robotic exoplatform - WOEX exercise machine equipped with a movable frame, robotic drivers, body weight support system, motion analysis, biofeedback, and non-invasive brain stimulator.
Implementation of WOEX technology in hospitals will be able to increase the effectiveness of conventional rehabilitation.
At home, WOEX training improves the quality of life.
WOEX supports the UN CRPD 2030 Mission: "Leaving No One Behind"
WOEX helps to lift lower limbs, keep body balance & provides different types of motions in all directions. The foot cuff is connected with robotized module through a flexible strap. All gate parameters are set prior to training. The user or assistant can handle and change all gate patterns through the hand remote controller.
Biofeedback is based on the analysis of motors load (force & motion analysis). How it works: the user sees different physical activity indicators on the screen and uses them to improve physical activity. Results in the determination of the optimal training regime and maximum neuroplasticity processes activation.
To activate mental functions we integrated a robotic module with non-invasive brain stimulation module. A new approach is based on open-loop feedback in which deteriorating of voluntary motor activity increases the level of brain stimulation.
Fatigue identification system Includes motion capture, motion analysis, and analysis of motors load. Objective: Determination of individual physical activity and early fatigue signs identification. Physical training stops when fatigue happens. Early fatigue signs alleviate the motor load.
WOEX training is aimed at increasing the effectiveness of motor adaptation and is based on methods widely used in neurorehabilitation, such as:
Verticalization - increases the level of mobility for a set of training of the cardiovascular system, vestibular and oculomotor apparatus;
Passive Mechanotherapy - aimed at restoring the range of motion in large joints by training elasticity and activating proprioception of the musculo-ligamentous apparatus;
Assistive Gate Training of stepping locomotion - allows you to memorize correct stepping movements using robotic simulators;
Coordination and Balance Training - increases the speed of motor reactions by eliminating unnecessary movements.
Regular training using the WOEX robotic exoplatform improves a number of body functions:
Gait stereotype function;
Function of joint mobility;
Muscle strength function;
Muscle endurance function;
Functions of orientation;
Volitional and incentive functions;
Functions of attention and functions of perception;
Functions of the cardiovascular system.
