Elastic resistance

From the list of training choose the exercise ” Elastic resistance”. This is a training, where you can apply the resistance, which can be found in elastic bands. Press the “Settings” button. Carry out the unweighting procedure and set/confirm the range of motion.  In the “Training information” tab you can put the patient’s position and muscles connected through EMG (if any) or select it from the list. In the “Elastic resistance” tab, select „connection point” of the virtual tape: top, middle, bottom.

EXAMPLE: if you choose “Top” for elbow training, it means the extensors of elbow extensors will have to work harder. 

You need to also put “Max. torque “value, which is the resistance, that the patient needs to overcome and” Multiplier “value, that tells you how quickly, a patient will reach the full resistance value. Whether it will be at the beginning of the movement (high multiplier) or at the end (low multiplier). You can adjust the training time as well and click “START”. The graph shows, position of the extension, torque and muscle activity, if muscles were connected. You can finish the training, before the end of the exercise, by pressing the “x” button.
