No other computerized system adjusts to the patient to ensure optimum programming and safety, instead of having the patient adjust to the system. Simple, non-invasive procedure with pre-amplified surface electrodes. Help identify malingerers and substantiate workers’ compensation claims by integrating muscle activity with muscle function. (optional) EMG Data Acquisition Package
Patient protocols for testing and exercise are stored on the computer hard disk and can be transferred to individual floppy diskettes. Large amounts of data can be easily stored, retrieved, or compared. Ariel users may develop customized data bases based on normative data or their own patient populations. Research files may be transferred between Ariel users by modem. User Files
Interactive capability allows less patient supervision. Increased Productivity
Expands treatment capabilities, minimizes set up time, and increases earning potential with minimal capital investment. Cost Effective
Controls, records and evaluates movement, strength and endurance on a continuous basis while storing information on easy to read color graphs, charts, and tables. Multiple Capabilities
or variable dynamic load and speeds. Personalized exercise programs are geared to the physical needs and requirements of the individual. isotonic, isokinetic, isometricCan program an exercise separately or in any combination for Versatile
User friendly computer screen menu with formatted exercise and test protocols or customized programs. Help screens always accessible. Simple to Operate
Equipment continually adjusts to patient for safe, complete rehabilitation. No emergency stop control necessary. Safe
No mechanical system breakdown. Smooth, even movement throughout the range of motion. Hydraulic Resistance
Exercise velocity and resistance in each direction are independently programmed and controlled. Allows training and comparison of antagonistic muscle groups. Conditions both the musculoskeletal and cardiovascular system. Bi-directional
Senses and automatically responds to patient performance up to 16,000 times per second to produce precise control of resistance and speed during performance of the chosen range of motion. Interactive, Closed Loop Biofeedback
