Erigo: Test Yourself!
Are you ready for the Erigo Clinical Training? Let's find out about your knowledge prior to the Clinical Training!
Note that more than one answer per question can be correct!
Take a look at the picture below. What do you see?
Save verticalization and mobilization of a neurologic patient
Training of a patient's cardiovascular system
Counteracting the complications of prolonged bedrest
What are the features of the Erigo?
Robotic leg movment
FES Module (in the ErigoPro only)
Cyclic leg loading
Which of the below options do you think are contraindications for Erigo therapy?
Severely fixed contractures affecting the lower limb (ankle, knee, hip)
Bone instability (non consolidated fractures, unstable spinal column, severe osteoporosis)
Uncooperative or (self-)aggressive behaviour
With the Erigo patients with orthostatic intolerance can be verticalized safely. How is this possible?
The combination of leg movement and cyclic loading induces a muscle pump that supports venous return from the legs even in comatose patients.
Only thanks to the functional electrical stimulation (FES) of the ErigoPro, the blood pressure can be maintained when being verticalized
