InMotion ROBOTS Cited in Research Supporting AHA Guidelines

AHA Stroke Care Guidelines Recommend Robot–Assisted Therapy for upper extremity motor practice in the Inpatient, Outpatient Setting and Chronic Care Settings

AHA references randomized controlled clinical trials using InMotion Robots and their corresponding clinical protocols

Care in the Inpatient Setting:    Class IIa Level of Evidence A


  • “Robot-Assisted  UPPER EXTREMITY  therapy, however, can improve motor function during the inpatient period after stroke”174 175 17
  • FIM® score improvement 30% greater than control group

Improvement from robot therapy was maintained on a 3 year follow up evaluation

Care in the Outpatient Setting:    Class I Level of Evidence A


  • “Robot-assisted therapy has been shown to improve UPPER EXTREMITY motor function in outpatient and chronic care settings”143

RECOMMENDATION:

Robot-assisted movement therapy used as an adjunct to conventional therapy in patients with deficits in arm function to improve motor skill at the joints trained.
