performance INDEX

Assessing and improving performance through robotics

The performance
assessment index.

The performance index is a total-body assessment tool that summarizes a patient’s performance in a comprehensive report, making it an ideal solution for both amateur and professional athletes looking to enhance their performance, by comparing their progress with that of high-performers, to obtain better results.

Focusing specifically on balance and proprioception allows to treat the musculoskeletal disorders that constitute some of the most common causes of injuries and occupational absenteeism.

The study

The performance index was developed through a close collaboration with the coaching and physiotherapy staff of a leading Italian soccer team that was assessed and treated over the course of a season.

The multidisciplinary team identified the functional areas with a decisive impact on an athlete’s physical performance and the best tests for assessing each one.

The performance index is available on hunova device as well as its orthopedic versions huno and huno S.

The technology has been integrated into the routine practice of hospitals and healthcare facilities specializing in orthopedics (including sports medicine), neurology and geriatrics worldwide.

The performance index adapts well to a range of sports disciplines.

The results

An effective solution for amateur and professional athletes, with the aim of increasing performance and comparing physical performance in order to optimize it or recover from an injury.

The performance index adapts well to a wide range of sports  thanks to the following features:

• overall performance assessment

• graphical representation of the individual’s general physical condition

• rapid, non-invasive screening

• personalized training based on objective screening

The performance index is calculated by combining the results of assessments in 7 specific areas. When a deficit is identified in one or more functional areas, it suggests the best preventive strategy by focusing treatments in those areas in which the robotic assessment detected suboptimal performance.

Movendo Technology supports medical and physical therapy professionals in the new frontier of individualized and specialized treatment, by providing a valuable set of objective data and quantitative feedback that improve both the efficacy and the efficiency of the rehabilitation or training process.

The path

Training suggestions

Depending on the results of the assessment, the algorithm suggests a customized training program focusing on specific functional areas and gauged on the severity of the detected deficit.

(The results obtained are displayed using a traffic light approach, to facilitate their reading and interpretation)

The performance index covers seven different functional areas and identifies those requiring a training strategy to improve performance or recover from an injury by using the data obtained from the high-performers assessed using the device as a benchmark.

hunova, huno and huno S, devices use gaming exercises to stimulate the patient to exceed previously achieved goals and scores, thus accelerating recovery and transforming therapeutic exercises into enjoyable activities.

The interface is mobile, allowing it to be used in both standing and sitting positions.

Tablet

The interface on the tablet computer allows clinicians to plan the session best suited to the patient, consult individual patient reports and produce diversified pathways from the comfort of their office. The tablet also allows the user to set up the patient’s planned rehabilitation session remotely.

Wireless position sensor

When placed on the subject’s trunk (or other area of the body, depending on the exercise), it monitors the movement of the subject, providing real-time acceleration and rotation measurements.

Standard ramp

The standard ramp is one of the extra optionals available for hunova, huno and huno S devices and is useful when the robotic system is used to transport non-self-sufficient and wheelchair-bound patients. The ramp can be removed and stowed away when not in use. Total length of ramp + hunova: 266 cm (104.7 inches).

Fixed ramp

The fixed ramp is one of the extra optionals available for hunova, huno and huno S devices and is useful when the robotic system is used to transport non-self-sufficient and wheelchair-bound patients. The ramp can be positioned either in line with hunova/huno/huno S (180°) or perpendicular to the device (90°), depending on the space available. Length of the ramp: 163.5 cm (64.3 inches).

Sensorized robotic platform

The robotic platform allows exercises to be performed in both bipodalic and monopodalic modality. Partial weight-bearing exercises can be carried out using the monopodalic mode. It can be used for passive therapy (mobilization), active therapy (with elastic or fluid resistance), proprioceptive therapy and assistive therapy (intervening to complete the exercise when the patient requires assistance). hunva and huno S seats are equipped with a force and torque sensor and an offset sensor.

Monopodalic configuration

Bipodalic configuration

Ankle sandal

Fits on the one-foot platform for ankle mobilization.

Knee and ankle stabilizer

When used in combination with the sandal, it prevents knee instability during ankle rehabilitation exercises.

Sensorized robotic seat

Induces both unidirectional and multidirectional movement with trajectories, speeds and ranges that can be set by the clinician. It can be used for passive therapy (mobilization), active therapy (with elastic or fluid resistance), proprioceptive therapy and assistive therapy (intervening to complete the exercise when the patient requires assistance). hunova and huno S seats are equipped with a force and torque sensor and an offset sensor.

Adjustable seat

The seat adjusts to each patient’s position to ensure maximum comfort and correct performance of the exercises. hunova, huno and huno S all allow the user to memorize the seat position for each patient, so that the same optimal configuration is always available.

Two removable handrails

Can be selected to suit the exercise (in sitting or standing positions) to ensure safe support for the patient.
