Our physiotherapists often care for very weak and sick bedridden patients, including ICU Covid patients who need intensive rehabilitation after being removed from a ventilator and patients with spinal injuries from road traffic accidents. Prolonged horizontal bed rest for these patients can lead to loss of function and weakness in their lower limbs, as well as damage to the cardiovascular system. One of the key factors in their recovery is to start rehabilitation in a vertical position as soon as possible once they are admitted to hospital.
How it works
The Robotic Tilt Table is a specialist device that helps patients to safely start early therapeutic lower limb exercises following neurological damage. Bedridden patients are strapped into the device and robotic leg movements begin whilst the table is slowly raised to a vertical position. The Robotic Tilt Table allows safe physical therapy in a very early stage of rehabilitation, reducing the amount of time patients will need to spend in hospital.
