Innovative medical devices for 3D rehabilitation -Y- autonomy of seniors
Summary:
A French ISO 13485 company has developed innovative rehabilitation product ranges, elected « most innovative product » and recognized by senior publications to maintain functional autonomy. The certified medical devices are commercialized into 3 markets: hospital centers, physiotherapist private office practices, sport centers. Knowledge transfer (via technical cooperation agreement) and/or exclusive license agreements are sought for these 3 kinds of partners
Description:
Regarding private practice physiotherapy, hospital center rehabilitation and athlete training and reeducation, a French company has developed an innovative product that authorizes a wide variety of movements of the upper and lower limbs and for spine in order to approximate as closely as possible daily activity or sportive movement. It allows analytical and global workup of muscle-joint units in 3D.

This multifunctional aspect provides a guarantee of its high rate of use with a multi-therapeutic purpose for all patients, seniors or younger people, athletes or sedentary and disabled people.
The device can be used for evaluation, prevention, training and rehabilitation:
· The benefits in manual resistance are one of the pillars of the physiotherapist´s work. The medical device enables the physiotherapist to be more precise and relieved of the physical effort of manual resistance to focus on his patient and improve his coaching.
· Isokinetics method of evaluation and rehabilitation is available not only in one plane but in 3D for all centers, allowing the workouts of overall muscle and joint units in 3 dimensions.
· The visualization of patient´s efforts with dynamic exercise, thanks to biofeedback and measurement of physical dimensions which lead to a quantitative approach to movement. This visual stimulation enables self-correction of the patient and the effort gains in quality; the session becomes increasingly more interactive and motivating.
· The access to quantifiable and precise results in real time. Statistical graph are easy to understand and can be sent to the prescribing doctor, to the health insurance entity or can be used as a support medium for writing articles.

Any device can be used for treatments in orthopedics, rheumatology, traumatology and neurology, for young athletes, disabled persons or elderly patients (functional rehabilitation is the only means of counteracting the loss of functional autonomy experienced by the elderly).

Patients benefit from a physiotherapy treatment which will be shorter, more efficient (a better recovery rate), less painful, more interactive and with objectively measured results.
Private office practices benefit from therapeutic treatments which were until now only accessible to hospital centers, in an all-in-one, easy-to-use product which has also a much greater return on investment rate than the current devices.
Hospital centers and clinics benefit from a device enabling controlled exercises with movements in 3 dimensions (2D isokinetic has generated more than 3200 scientific publications) for half price of a 2D isokinetic device.
In sport centers, the product range dedicated to rehabilitation and training of athletes, enables to practice (replicating the sport movement), control and exceed the performance.

The company is looking for medical device manufacturers, medical device distributors or other industrial companies that want to develop their product range via knowledge transfer (fix cost) and exclusive licensing agreements (success fee on sales).

The knowledge transfer includes:
· Product definition file with :
The bill of materials, identification of each spare parts and components with internal and suppliers´ references, 2 qualified suppliers for each line, buying cost by 3, 10, 25 and 100 units, certificates and data sheet when needed.
The technical drawings folder of any single piece including functional dimensioning. This technical drawings folder allows to out-source all the product´s spare parts.
· Manufacturing process, with ISO 13485 certified analytical assembly instruction full set, allowing assembly of the product, including operator self-control and final quality tests, transport and installation instructions. Training of partner´s workshop staff and manufacturing. Technical support at any time.
If needed:
· Quality system management with the full ISO 13485 certified quality system management
· Sales process -Y- sales support
Advantages and Innovations:
· 4 different work modes: simulation of manual resistance with real time biofeedback, 3D isokinetic, passive mobilization and isometrics, integrating more than 23 innovative applications
· 3D isokinetics device (worldwide innovation, patented), allowing movement developed in space and no longer on a single plan
· Product able to simulate the manual resistance (worldwide innovation, patented), according to the physiotherapist´s instructions displayed on the screen,
· Isokinetic dynamometer with distal effector to offer a biofeedback in real time for a better coaching,
· Device supplying easily and objectively obtained results by the patient, enabling real time adaptation and communication of the results to the medical team
