Resumen:
Una empresa italiana con amplia experiencia en equipos de rehabilitación ha desarrollado una nueva plataforma estabilométrica de activación dinámica que se utiliza en rehabilitación sensomotriz, investigación forense y neurología. El producto se basa en un sistema de suspensión neumático capaz de generar perturbaciones de intensidad programable que, a través de niveles progresivos, permite a los pacientes mejorar su rendimiento neuromotriz. Las medidas de las oscilaciones posturales y la actividad muscular se sincronizan con el movimiento de la plataforma: un algoritmo sofisticado realiza una evaluación detallada de los reflejos posturales producidos por la desestabilización de los estímulos. La empresa busca socios con el fin de establecer acuerdos comerciales con asistencia técnica.

Tittle:
Innovative tool for proprioceptive, neuromuscular and in balance rehabilitation
Summary:
An Italian company has developed an innovative dynamic activated stabilometric platform to be used in sensorimotor rehabilitation, forensic and neurology. The product is based on an active pneumatic suspension system able to generate perturbations of programmable intensity and by means of
progressive levels allows patients to improve their neuromotorial performance.The company is looking for a commercial agreement with technical assistance.
Description:
An Italian company with extensive experience in development and production of rehabilitation products has invented a new dynamic activated stabilometric platform. The proposed system is a valuable diagnostic tool in sensorimotor rehabilitation, forensic and neurology.The proposed solution can be used for:
· fall risk assessment and conditioning programs
· neuromuscular control associated movement disorders
· functional vestibular deficiency analisys
· prosthetic rehabilitation
· ligament sprains associated orthopedic rehabilitation
· core and lumbar stabilization strategies
· pre and post head injury screening
· anti-neoplastic drugs studies

The product is based on an active pneumatic suspension system able to generate perturbations of programmable intensity. Measurements of postural oscillations and muscle activity are synchronized with the platform movement, so that a sophisticated algorithm can accomplish a detailed evaluation of the postural reflexes evoked by destabilizing stimuli. Significant data (in quali-quantitative terms) are collected and easily exported, to be used for diagnosis and research purposes.
The offered multifactorial evaluation helps understanding ability and ex-tent of patient´s postural adaptation. Data collection and their subse-quent processing, results in a consistent instrument to be used by spe-cialists for a sensory motor-rehabilitation program preparation (including visual, vestibular and proprioceptive perception).
Advanced training phases can be conducted through substantial use of Serious Games: focusing patient´s attention, cognitive tasks positively affect rehabilitation.
The machine can be programmed and allows setting of customized target reaching exercises, leaving the therapist the freedom to create the most appropriate rehabilitation program.

Technical characteristics:
- Electro-hydraulic active suspension.
- Dynamic activation not correlated to the patient´s weight: latero-lateral, anterior-posterior.
- Detection system of the centre of pressure based on four load cells 100kg f.s.
- Automatic blocking of the platform for the static test Maximum load: 136kg
- Mechanical frame made of high-strength steel laser cut
Compact and robust platform, easy to install Size: W 65 x D 50 x 18 h cm Weight: 50 kg Compressed air: max. 2 bars.

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:
Robot activated dynamic stabilometry.
Measurements of postural oscillations and muscle activity to be used for diagnosis and research purposes.
Sensory motor-rehabilitation program preparation (including visual, vestibular and proprioceptive perception).
Advanced training phases are conducted through Serious Games (SG).
Customizable target reaching exercises.
Preset therapeutic pathway including : basic stability recovery, ankles, hips and trunk mobility recovery, vestibular rehabilitation, proprioceptive rehabilitation.
Stage of Development:
Already on the market
