According to the World Health Organization (WHO), one person in the world is affected by a stroke, every 5 seconds. Although this medical condition is more commonly linked to age, it can nevertheless occur at any time and in men and women alike.
During a stroke or cerebral hemorrhage, the brain is deprived of oxygen and can be permanently damaged. Statistically, 2 out of 3 stroke victims suffer from severe motor skill loss.
Fully aware of this major health concern and with the knowledge that the weeks succeeding a stroke are crucial to maximize stroke patient recovery, Clinique Valmont has acquired the THERA-Trainer Lyra.
This training device was specially developed to facilitate gait (walking) rehabilitation and to enable stroke victims to recover motor skills that until now, were impossible to restore.
This effective and easy-to-use therapy enables patients to be accompanied throughout each phase of their rehabilitation. The device also features connectivity functions to electronically transmit data to the therapist or physician, for instant analysis.
The THERA-Trainer Lyra device recreates the natural walking movement and the intensity level can be personalized and adapted to each patient. This effective therapy accompanies patients in each phase of their rehabilitation and enables them to gain mobility and endurance in their daily lives.
