The key components that accentuate the intelligence of IH-Gait Frame is that key patient data and details are captured with body sensors and video for improved clinical evaluation to arrive at objective, measurable, and sustainable outcomes.
Pompano Beach, Florida (PRWEB) May 26, 2015
LL Corpus Cogere, Inc. announced today the completion of its Intelligent Home GAIT Frame Equipment Prototype 2 (IH-GAIT Frame) and launch of beta testing and academic research at the prestigious JSS Hospital (JSS) in Mysore, India. The IH-GAIT Frame is the company’s flagship new age physical therapy product intended to bring innovative gait rehabilitation to home settings with similar evidence-based outcomes typically provided at rehabilitation centers and healthcare facilities. The IH-GAIT Frame safely supports home-bound patients in a standing position throughout their therapy sessions that typically requires multiple physical therapists and large medical equipment.
The IH-GAIT Frame primarily supports the industry-recognized “weight bearing” concept, which is essential in building muscle strength, balance, coordination and proprioception unequivocally supporting medical principles and laws of science, such as Wolff’s Law, and the Overload, SAID, and Reversibility Principles.
The IH-GAIT Frame, US Patent pending, was conceived and designed by LL Corpus and currently being engineered and industrialized by Star Knowledge Technology Alliance Team, LLC, with offices in Florida, USA, and Mysore, India.
The accompanying academic research supports a hypothesis that IH-GAIT Frame will provide a safe and effective treatment approach and achieve evidence-based rehabilitation outcomes of gait patients operating in restricted space environments. The underpinning hypothesis is that IH-GAIT Frame provides capabilities for patients to be safely elevated from sitting to standing position using body weight support apparatus maintaining upright standing position throughout treatment sessions. Weight bearing and multi-directional application of pressure to the joints of the lower extremity (hip, knee, and ankle joints) help stimulate muscular contractions and co-contractions, promote bone strength and normalize pattern of movement.
IH-GAIT Frame value proposition highlights:
1. Coalesce physical therapy, mental health and yoga best practices.
2. Boost freedom of patient movement thereby promoting normalized pattern of movement.
3. Encompass 22 customized time-honored exercises, designed exclusively for IH-GAIT Frame.
4. Enable physical therapists (PT) to customize movements for musculoskeletal and neurological patients.
5. Collect and observe patient vital signs and body movements via sensors throughout sessions.
6. Video and monitor patient rehabilitation sessions remotely.
7. Expand PT productivity with real-time data entry and computerized interaction with physicians and patients.
8. Supply Cloud-based E-Patient Chart with mobile device access.
9. Provide patient evidence-based outcomes digitally to Medicare and insurance carriers.
Kevin M. O’Sullivan, president and CEO, stated: “We are extremely delighted to have secured the commitment and confidence of JSS College of Physiotherapy and JSS Hospital, in Mysore, India, to proactively collaborate as a value-add partner in the beta testing of IH-GAIT Frame and support our important academic research on patient Gait rehabilitation activities. We are definitely looking forward to JSS’s testing and research contribution outcomes and further enrichment of our equipment before we productize for sale to the healthcare industry.”
The key LL Corpus competitive advantage is that the IH-GAIT Frame offers substantial cross-over appeal to a broad spectrum of healthcare fields, such as rehabilitation, wellness, sports medicine, fitness, occupational therapy and home healthcare. LL Corpus is uniquely positioned to support improved patient outcomes with a Holistic Rehabilitation Approach (HRA) that entails consideration of patients’ over-all lifestyle including mental, physical and medical conditions. We view physical rehabilitation as no longer a treatment of individual impairments or receipt of passive “fix its”. The outcome of our HRA will enable patients to experience more complete and effective healing of their total human state.
“The IH-GAIT Frame is the first of our intelligent home equipment devices that we will be introducing over the next few years. The key components that accentuate the intelligence of our equipment is that key patient data and details are captured with body sensors and video for improved clinical evaluation to arrive at objective, measurable, and sustainable outcomes. With sanguine expectations, we will identify innovative enhancements during our JSS testing and research that will positively enrich the usability of our equipment.”, said Louise T. Lontoc, founder and executive vice president of LL Corpus.
Dr. Kavitha Raja, Professor & Principal at JSS College of Physiotherapy and Head of Physiotherapy at JSS Hospital stated: “I enthusiastically believe that the IH-GAIT Frame has the makings of widespread use in India given our large outpatient populace that view visiting medical facilities as demanding and expensive. The equipment has the capability to equally support positive rehabilitation outcomes for small children as well as seniors with joint disorders and other physical conditions. I am looking forward to collaborating with LL Corpus in equipment testing and academic research activities with our physical therapists and patients.”
