How to Set Up Shoulder Extension on Luna EMG for a Patient?

In this video you can see how to set up shoulder extension for a patient. After you attached the shoulder extension to the device and set it to the right position, follow these simple rules:

  1. In the software, click “Stop extension” and adjust the extension to the patient’s limb.
  2. Shoulder joint should be in the area where the extension is attached to the device head. The axis of rotation of the extension should coincide with the axis in the shoulder joint (height is adjusted with the help of a remote control).
  3. Elbow joint must be in the area of the elbow support pad (which is in the middle of the extension). You can adjust the length of the upper part and lower part of the extension manually if needed (find a small pinch underneath). We adjust the straps, the pillow on the forearm and the handle as shown in the video.
  4. Wrist joint and position of the arm can be adjusted to suit goals of the therapy. You can even remove the holder and instead give the patient something to hold, like bottle, cup, comb etc in order to make movement more functional and applicable to the activities of daily living (ADL).

TIP: Remember about the right position of the patient during the exercise, pay attention if there are any compensations during the movement.
