Happy Rehab

HAPPY REHAB is an interactive standing support system for rehabilitation of gross motor and cognitive skills. The system is used for habilitation and rehabilitation of individuals with cerebral palsy (CP), brain injuries from strokes, or other neurological functional limitations. Intensive training with HAPPY REHAB results in sustained improvement in daily activities such as balance, walking and climbing stairs.

Movement makes the difference

By actively stretching muscles, the system increases active and passive joint mobility, as well as improving balance and neuromuscular control. The user interacts with the system in a unique way; it becomes a useful tool for learning and improving skills.
HAPPY REHAB gives constant, motivating feedback; keeping statistics so that the user can monitor his/her progress. The system can be adjusted to the individual user, so that the exercises are suitably challenging, according to the user’s level of function and training.

Specially designed computer games train different muscle groups

The user operates the system’s computer games using moveable foot pedals or knee supports. This trains joint mobility and coordination of the ankle joint and promotes active stretching of the knee. It is also possible to move the legs in an upright, weight-bearing position, so that circulation is improved in a way that is pleasant for the user. The specially designed exercises with repetitions and feedback help to improve the user’s ability to activate a muscle at the right time and with the right amount of force. This gives the user better muscle control and coordination. The system can also be used for safe balance exercises, by registering weight transfer in all directions.

HAPPY REHAB comes in three sizes, for children, youth and adults. The system can also be adjusted individually within the different size categories.

Functions

HAPPY REHAB allows for a goal-oriented intensive intervention that’s structured, challenging and motivating to the user. The system has several important qualities that promote training of different muscle groups and skills. 

ACTIVE STRETCHING

Through active stretching of muscles, HAPPY REHAB increases active and passive joint mobility, which can be difficult for people with neurological disorders.

MUSCLE CONTROL AND COORDINATION

The specially designed exercises in HAPPY REHAB help to improve coordination and neuromuscular control. Through numerous repetitions and visual feedback, the user becomes better at activating a muscle at the right time and with the right amount of force.

FEEDBACK AND STRUCTURE

HAPPY REHABs MyTRAINER-function plans and structures individual training programmes. This motivates the user to carry out a specific and targeted training. This function can be used by the therapist or the user him/herself.
The FOOTPRINTS function is a detailed training diary that records the user’s training time, scores, joint mobility, etc. This function can be used to illustrate the user’s progress and can be printed as well.

MOVEMENT

MOVEment is a unique function that gives the individual user an increased sense of well-being during training.
The function moves the legs in an upright weight-bearing position. This mobilizes the joints in a comfortable and natural way, which is relaxing and promotes circulation. It can be used separately or integrated into the active training programme, as a part of warm-up, as a break or at the end of training.

MOVEMENT OF THE ANKLE JOINT

In HAPPY REHAB, the user stands on moveable foot pedals. By flexing the feet up and down (plantar/dorsal flexion), the user operates the computer games.  The “Toe-Walker” is a typical user of this function, with increased joint mobility and coordination of the ankle as the outcome. Other users with muscle weakness, stiffness or dysfunctions in the ankle and foot will also typically benefit from these exercises. The exercises can be done with left ankle only, right ankle only or left and right ankle simultaneously.

MOVEMENT OF THE KNEE JOINT

In HAPPY REHAB, the user stands with moveable knee supports, and operates the computer games by flexing and extending the knee (knee flexion/extension).  People with “Crouch-gait” will typically use this function, which allows for active stretching of the knee joint. Other users with muscle weakness or dysfunctions of the leg and knee can also benefit from these exercises. The exercises can be done with left knee only, right knee only or left and right knee simultaneously.

COMBINED MOVEMENT

The exercises can be done separately or in a combined movement, where foot pedals as well as knee supports are moveable. The computer games are operated by using tactile force sensors in the foot pedals.

BALANCE

HAPPY REHAB’s foot pedals are equipped with tactile force sensors that register weight transfer in all directions.  People with all types of balance dysfunctions can benefit from this function. The user can perform weight transfer or balance exercises while standing safely in the HAPPY REHAB stander.  A variety of balance exercises are possible.
