Ankle Rehabilitation Robot

What is it?

MSK Doctors offers intelligent ankle joint rehabilitation treatment using cutting-edge robotic system. It is designed to train the distal joint of the lower limb through human-robot interaction. This device helps to improve the motor control of the ankle joint and walking ability with patients that experience ankle mobility dysfunctions.

What does the Ankle Robot offer?

The ankle robot offers professional and personalised therapy including motor control, muscle strength, range of motion and cognitive training. Rehabilitation from the acute to the chronic stages can be covered with the intelligent force feedback technology that responds to the needs of various patients. In addition, it also offers digitised training which analyses every movement precisely and generates a report after training.

Immersive Interactive Experience – An extensive library of interactive games and customisable training can guide the user to complete postural control through audio and visual inputs, which can retain the user’s interest and achieve rehabilitation purpose at the same time.

Measurable Training – Integrated with force and position sensors to measure every movement precisely. The device can measure the user’s performance from multiple prospects, including the range of motion (ROM), strength, cognition, response time, etc. All these analysis and training reports are considered by the practitioners to ensure optimal training outcome.
