1 Vibramoov NEUROREHABILITATION OF THE LOCOMOTOR SYSTEM THROUGH FUNCTIONAL PROPRIOCEPTIVE STIMULATION

2 Principe of action BRAIN ACTIVATION VIBRAMOOV REVOLUTIONIZES FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENT THERAPY One of the main challenge of neurorehabilitation is to re-establish the coordination between motricity and related neurosensory informations. Today Vibramoov offers to healthcare professionals and patients a unique neurorehabilitation therapy enabling to maintain this functional interaction throughout the recovery process. EXPERIENCE AND RE-INITITIATE THE MOVEMENT Vibramoov technologies are now revolutionizing functional movement therapy by preserving the sensory and motor functions even when motion is impossible. Arising from 30 years of scientific and clinical researches*, Vibramoov sequences stimulate the nervous system with sensory informations identical to those normally going along natural movements. These afferent informations can induce motor responses corresponding to the sensation the patient experienced. These stimulations keep alive sensorimotor interactions and stimulate their neuroplasticity. VIBRAMOOV SPEEDS UP THE REHABILITATION PROCESS STIMULATION OF THE MUSCLE SPINDLES Vibramoov gives the patients the chance and satisfaction to keep experiencing movement. Its early and enhanced action limits the occurrence of the multiple damages induced by long periods of immobility. Daily rehabilitation time is enhanced, improved in quality, more pleasant, conforting and less tiring. As a consequence, Vibramoov helps patients getting back their independence earlier and in better conditions. *Techno Concept exclusive patent licence agreement WO Co-development Pr. Roll JP. and Dr. Roll R. A WIDE RANGE OF CLINICAL APPLICATIONS Acquired or congenital neurological impairments (ataxia, brain injury, dystonia, cerebral palsy, neurological diseases, Parkinson s disease, sclerosis, stroke ) Partial spinal cord injuries Partial spinal cord injuries Orthopaedics Consequences of aging (ankylosis, balance deficit, immobility syndrome, muscular weakness) TARGETED AND SUSTAINABLE ACTIONS Prevention of «sensorimotor deprogramming» Early, continuous and repeated rehabilitative action Locomotor training Stimulation of neuroplasticity and motor recovery Regulation of muscle tone with reduction of spasticity

3 Vibramoov G - Gait rehabilitation TREATMENT DURING THE ACUTE PHASE 1 Vibramoov mobile unit enables therapists to apply very early specific treatments to bedridden patients in order to preserve their locomotor pattern. This treatment gives them the sensation that their legs move and drives them to realize important motor responses mimicking these sensations. VERTICALISED TREATMENT ON STANDER 2 Thanks to its versatility, Vibramoov is adjustable to the patient s capabilities and progresses. With the stander the body of the patient can be placed in an optimal posture to experience and realize various movements approaching gait ones. 3 ADVANCED TREATMENT STANDING The Vibramoov stimulations applied on patient standing facilitate the rehabilitation of postural control and drive him to re-initiate the gait. Trauma 1 2 3

4 Vibramoov A - Arm rehabilitation EARLY TREATMENT ACTIVATES NEUROPLASTICITY Functional recovery of the paretic upper extremity eludes the majority of patients after stroke or TBI. Vibramoov early treatments help these patients to stimulate their neuroplasticity and facilitate the recovery of their ability to coordinate their muscle to perform earlier the important everyday life gesture. INTENSITY AND REPETITION MATTER Vibramoov protocols follow patient's progress. Rehabilitation sessions allow a progressive and more intense work based on the repetition of task-oriented stimulation allowing the patient to regain their motor skills. MOBILITY RECOVERY Vibramoov therapy for upper limb gives the patient the sensation of multi-joint movements and drives him to realize important motor responses. The patient thus recovers its mobility. BIMANUAL COORDINATION During the rehabilitation of stroke patients the Vibramoov bimanual coordination treatments involving the nonparetic limb facilitate the paretic limb s recovery. COGNITIVE STIMULATION Advanced treatments will allow the patients to realize and drawing as writing movements. Vibramoov will provide them live video biofeedback that strengthens the sensory stimulations, motivates them throughout the session improving long-term outcomes. DECREASE OF SPASTICITY AND IMPROVEMENT OF MOTOR FUNCTIONS Decrease of the spasticity In this specific mode these stimulations are generally applied directly in the middle of the antagonist muscle of the spastic one. They are generally applied directly in the middle of the antagonist muscle of the spastic one. These stimulations induce an increased activity of the muscles stimulated and a reciprocal inhibition on the spastic one. Vibramoov anti-spastic stimulation will be necessary to regulate the tone of the patient s muscles and prepare them to receive other stimulations through the tendon that elicit natural sensation of movement and induce multi-joint motor responses. Antagonist stimulation

5 VIBRAMOOV GUIDES THE PATIENT THROUGHOUT THE REHABILITATION PROCESS Thanks to the richness and diversity of the Vibramoov protocols, clinicians can propose rehabilitation sessions adapted to different pathologies and to the patients progress and needs. These protocols enable patients to maintain or regain their ability to execute coordinated and rhythmic movements involving multiple joints and muscles such as locomotion, pointing or drawing movements. From one protocol to another, variations of the functional proprioceptive stimulation will change the type of movement perceived: Different programs for the lower limbs Different programs for the upper limbs Following patients' improvements, the Vibramoov protocols stimulate gradually the sensory-motor system of the patients and consequently induce motor responses increasing with the intensity used. LIFE VIDEO BIO-FEEDBACK ENABLING MULTISENSORY STIMULATION Example of Lower limb gait stimulation Example Upper limb bimanual stimulation VIBRAMOOV AT A GLANCE Central action through peripheral stimulation Increase and enhancement of daily rehabilitation Continuum of neurorehabilitation Short set up (less than 10 minutes) Application to many locomotor disorders Only one therapist to operate and self-treatment
