Gross Motor Lower Extremities
How does Erigo work?
The Erigo uniquely combines multiple types of conventional therapy to safely and efficiently increase therapy for improved outcomes. The Erigo works by gradually raising immobile patients to a vertical position on a tilt table while cycling the legs robotically with added support from functional electrical stimulation (FES). This simultaneous therapy helps to maximize cardiovascular stabilization, muscular strength and neurological stimulation in a safe and effective setting.
How does the Erigo help?
Highly useful for acute injury care and low-awareness neurological patients, the Erigo allows a single clinician to efficiently offer mobilization and sensorimotor stimulation. At Brooks, we use the Erigo to improve stepping, circulation and mobility for our patients both in inpatient care at Brooks Rehabilitation Hospital and in our Neuro Recovery Centers for ongoing care.
