Exercise Kit

Exercise Kit

The E-LINK Exercise Kit consists of Myo-EX and AngleX sensors that are exclusively designed for innovative biofeedback therapy.

Myo-EX and AngleX are used in a wide variety of clinical settings, from hand therapy to stroke and neuro rehabilitation.

Myo-EX

Myo-EX is a highly sensitive sensor using biofeedback for exercise, beginning from when there is the tiniest flicker of voluntary muscle activity, with or without visible joint movement. The sensor can be used throughout the full spectrum of muscular activity and rehabilitation, even to that of the professional athlete.

Myo-EX is extremely useful for tendon transfers and radial nerve injuries in hand therapy or for patients in the acute phase of stroke recovery.

The immediate visual feedback from the moving objects in the Activity helps the patient know when they are actually activating the muscle. Normal movement patterns are subsequently encouraged as the patient focuses on smooth, efficient and co-ordinated motor control in order to succeed in the activity. As the patient's attention is drawn to a normal movement pattern, unnecessary compensatory movements are thereby discouraged.

  • Easy and quick to use in busy clinical environments
  • Sensors are applied to clean, dry skin over the muscle area to be exercised
  • Applied to the skin with die-cut medical grade hypoallergenic tape
  • The precision sensor is designed to give superb quality of signal and can detect as little as 3-4 microvolts of electrical activity
  • The full scale reaches 3000 microvolts which may be seen in larger deltoid, bicep or quad muscles
  • Minimum and maximum readings are quickly assessed and used as the parameters for the E-LINK Activities
  • Biofeedback is immediate to the patient through the movement of objects on the screen providing a high degree of motivational exercise
  • Myo-EX is ideal for wrist extension exercise, focused exercise on the shoulder musculature, knee exercise and has been used by Speech and Language Therapists for certain facial muscles

AngleX

Where there is active joint movement, AngleX encourages focused exercise against gravity for small DIP joints through to the larger joints of the upper and lower extremities.

AngleX is very beneficial for a variety of clinical areas needing a tool for focused exercise - from hand therapy clinics to Stoke, Neuro and Spinal Injury Units.

  • Easy and quick to apply in busy clinical environments
  • Using medical grade hypoallergenic tape, sensors are applied to clean, dry skin, close to the joint to be exercised
  • The small AngleX is used for the fingers, thumb and wrist
  • The large AngleX is used for the forearm, elbow, shoulder, back, neck, hip, knee and ankle joints
  • Baseline readings are taken in 1 degree increments for the active ranges of motion. These are automatically entered as the parameters for the chosen Activity which can be graded to suit therapy goals
  • Biofeedback is immediate to the patient through the movement of objects on the screen, providing a high degree of motivation for exercise
  • AngleX encourages and reinforces normal movement patterns
