Benefits

A correct and effective rehabilitation therapy accelerates both muscular and cardiac functional recovery. More particularly, using Pegaso favours:

  • An improvement in movement range
  • The prevention of disuse atrophy of the muscles
  • A reduction of spasticity
  • A reduction of osteoarticular problems
  • An increase of muscular mass
  • An increase in strength
  • An increased cardiopulmonary capacity
  • A reduction of peripheral circulatory problems
  • A reduction of oedema
  • A reduced immune system deficit
  • A reduced digestive deficit
  • Improved bladder and bowel functions
  • The reduction of body fat

The result is an overall functional improvement, essential to individual psycho-physical well-being.

In particular, the two modes of using the PEGASO (active and passive) – both of which can be used in the same rehabilitation session – mean that a variety of results can be obtained.

The main benefits of passive exercise (when the arms or legs are moved mechanically, without an activation of the muscles) are a reduction in the occurrence of spasms, an increase in the articular range, contrasting contractures, and improving the bladder and bowel functions.

The perfect integration of electrical stimulation and the motor in active exercise (when the muscles themselves, paralysed or paretic, perform movements activated or completed through FES) regulates the intensity of the work carried out, increasing both the volume and contractile ability of the muscles, improving peripheral circulation and cardiopulmonary conditioning, with beneficial effects on the immune system and on bladder and bowel functions.
