About ReoSTREAM

ReoSTREAM utilizes robot-assisted technology to provide every patient, regardless of initial functional level, with thousands of functionally oriented, customized, progressively engaged arm movements leading to measurable gains in a three-week period. This flexible technology creates a program solution for every patient. Each patient is progressed individually: low-functioning stroke patients receive intense proximal training leading to increased range of motion, normalized muscle tone, and decreased pain; mid- functioning stroke survivors will gain strength and increased active range of motion; high-functioning stroke survivors improve range of motion, smoothness and coordination of movement.
