Therapy Options

Passive and assistive movement of the leg

The weight of the leg can be transferred to the device for gentle movement (especially helpful for weak or painful legs). The rubber bands are used to guide the device. The leg can be moved passively or with assistance.

Hip and knee joint mobilization

Flexion mobilization

Extension mobilization

Concentric and eccentric muscle training

Activation of the leg muscles

activation of the extensors

Concentric and eccentric stretching against the resistance of the rubber band

activation of the flexors

Slow flexion and extension against gravity

Therapy for everyday life

Pulling on the rubber bands while lying down is comparable to lifting a heavy object while standing.

Therapy for the ankle joint

Activation of the plantar flexors

Carabiner in the forefoot area

Activation of the dorsiflexors

Carabiner in the heel area

Neutral position for hip and knee therapy

Carabiners in the ankle area hardly cause any torque.

Activation of the foot muscles

Diagonal arrangement of the carabiners

Therapy after amputations with prostheses

  • Preparing the residual limb for full weight bearing

  • Activation of the muscles in the residual limb area

Concentric and eccentric activation of the hip extensors against the resistance of the rubber bands

Concentric and eccentric activation of the hip flexors without rubber bands - movement against gravity

Active trunk extension

Therapy against a limping mechanism - active stretching of the leg in length while simultaneously pulling the rubber bands

Therapy Examples

Trauma Surgery

Accident: fall from a great height (patient 52 years)

Diagnoses: tibia and fibula fractures on both sides, comminuted fracture of the heel and ankle bone on the right, fracture L4

Therapy: 8 weeks after the accident

Passive-assisted movement of the right ankle joint

Passive-assistive movement of the right leg

Gentle muscle strengthening of the left leg

Patient after surgically treated tibial plateau fracture: Therapy after the 7th week postoperatively:

Therapy duration: 15 - 20 min.

Patient with genu valgum 8°, therapy session in the 4th week
post-operation anterior cruciate ligament and lateral stabilization

First video sequence: Activation of the hamstrings against gravity
The patient has to press the device actively into the couch with his heel.
Very demanding for sensomotricity- wobbling movements of the device can be seen

Second video sequence: isometric activation of the pronators (rubber band is attached close to the big toe)
to stabilize the genu valgum for walking
Subjective feeling of stability increases from 5 to 8 (VAS from 0-10)

Third video sequence: Activation of the extensors with the limit bar (rubber bands next tot he ankle)

2 photos: Check of the extension using a plurimeter (> 60°)

Fourth video sequence: Simultaneous activation of the extensors AND the pronators by splitting the rubber bands medial
Very demanding for sensomotricity


Patient with pronounced coxarthrosis on the right, pain in the right groin increases when climbing

Therapy: active trunk lengthening

Repetition: 4 x 20 with a 2-minute break each time

Pain before therapy: VAS 5.5

Pain after therapy: VAS 3.6
