Neurological rehabilitation

Erigo

The Erigo can be part of a personalised Rehabilitation program

About

The Erigo is a tilt table combined with a stepping device that allows you to start your rehabilitation earlier. Its stepping motion helps maintain blood pressure, enabling you to train for longer and prevent some of the effects of prolonged bed rest.

The Erigo is used on intensive care or in the Rehabilitation unit. It is predominantly used for:

Stroke.
Traumatic Brain Injury.
Spinal Cord Injury.

Need to know

  • What happens icon plus

    Erigo neurological rehabilitation is usually carried out by a physiotherapist. They'll begin by asking you to lie down on the Erigo tilt table. After strapping you in, your physiotherapist will then move to a computer panel, from which they can control the tilt table. Depending on your treatment plan, your physiotherapist will use the panel to gradually raise the table and move your legs. It can also be used to provide you with sensory motor stimulation.  

    The Erigo aims to:

    • increase cardiovascular stability allowing you to be placed in an upright position earlier
    • promote muscle strengthening and standing tolerance
    • prevent complications due to prolonged bed rest or immobility such as contractures, deconditioning and muscle stiffness
    • improve patient alertness.
  • How to prepare icon plus

    Erigo doesn't involve special preparation, however, you'll most likely be asked to wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothes.
  • Afterwards icon plus

    Your consultant or physiotherapist will explain what happens after your Erigo neurological rehabilitation.
