Resumen:
Una empresa italiana especializada en el estudio de la biomecánica del cuerpo humano y técnicas de rehabilitación ha desarrollado un dispositivo inteligente de rehabilitación que incorpora múltiples máquinas convencionales en un solo dispositivo y que está indicado para rehabilitación de las extremidades superiores, medias e inferiores. Esta solución, que funciona con aire comprimido, permite a los terapeutas definir de forma segura ejercicios en contracción concéntrica, y más específicamente en fase excéntrica. La empresa está interesada en establecer acuerdos comerciales con asistencia técnica.

Tittle:
Smart rehabilitation device for the the upper, middle and lower limbs
Summary:
An Italian company has invented a smart rehabilitation device which encloses multiple traditional machines in a single device and it is recommended for the rehabilitation of the upper, middle and lower limbs. The proposed solution allows therapists to safely set exercises in concentric contraction and more specially in eccentric phase. The company is looking for a commercial agreement with technical assistance.
Description:
An Italian company, specialised in studying biomechanics of human body and with a solid scientific background in rehabilitation techniques and machineries (mainly platforms for evaluation and rehabilitation of balance), has invented a light, multipurpose compact reahabilitation system which works with compressed air.
In many different multidisciplinary environments (physiatric, orthopedic, neurologic, otorynolaringoiatric and so on) the human balance is considered one of the most relevant elements which needs to be studied and understood for having a complete diagnosis of postural dysfunctions. By considering this, the company has focused its efforts in research turned into evaluating and rehabilitating human balance.
The proposed device for rehabilitation of balance encloses the potential of multiple traditional machines in a single device and is recommended for the functional rehabilitation of the upper and lower limbs.
Thanks to the compressed air technology the device is easy to operate and to be transported and very suitable for rehabilitation applications as well as for sports training, even in the eccentric phase.
The special feature of this device is the possibility given to the therapist to safely set exercises in concentric contraction but especially eccentric. During the eccentric contraction, the force applied by the muscle appears to be three times that the one developed during the concentric phase.
Therefore, the exercises in the eccentric phase represent a preventive treatment against any potential muscular damage.
The machine also includes a Graphical User Interface (GUI) and also dedicated software with the following features:
· Twelve pre-set sheets of exercises
· Possibility to set time and strength in eccentric and concentric, to each repetition
· Customizable training programs

Technical characteristics:
- Safe operation with compressed air
- Differentiated load between the eccentric and concentric
- Maximum force in eccentric mode: 30Kg (50Kg in sport version)
- Maximum force in concentric mode: 30Kg (50Kg in sport version)
- Adjustable resistance in steps of 0.5 kg
Time variation between eccentric and concentric phases of 100ms

Mechanical features:
Column with adjustable cable height 30 cm to 200 cm
Rotation of the column on the vertical axis of 180 °
Cable length: 2 m
Dimensions: W40 x D30 x H 210 cm) Weight: 40 kg
Compressed air: max. 7 bars, flow 40 l / min

The company is looking for a commercial agreement with technical assistance. The partner is supposed to be dealing with sport and/or rehabilitation.
Potential partners should include: universities, hospitals, rehabilitation centres and fitness centres.
The partner will be professionaly trained and then will be asked to implement the proposed technology, to support local clients at first level and to provide a proper feedback for customizing, tuning and adapting the solution. Suggestions in order to include new features will be welcome.
Advantages and Innovations:
The proposed rehabilitation system is based on compressed air technology which makes the machine easy to be operated and suitable for rehabilitation applications as well as for sports training, even in the eccentric phase. Compared with most common rehabilitation machinery the proposed solution does not include any bulky and heavy weight stack and this results in a very light and easy to be operated appliance.
