Early patient trials offered good feedback. G-Move Suit was tested on 3-4 different patients, corresponding to two profiles (post-operative and sporty).
Regarding the post-operative on a cruciate ligament (pressure set on 90 mmHg), patients felt helped during the exercises. After these, they describe an impression of light legs. They do not need a break during the exercises, which allows to work longer and harder. Above 90 mmHg, the exercise is more difficult and requires more effort. Without adding weight, the feeling that the movement is harder fits more within a framework of muscle development goal. Gmove-Suit is an aid at the beginning of the reeducation, when the patient is weaker, or to allow a faster recovery on the rest periods.
Patients already love it
Tested on a 90 mmHg cyclist, he told us that he felt like he was being helped during the effort. AT 100mmHg, the effort was harder, and the rather feeling recovery-oriented. Above this pressure, on the flat, the feeling and effort was similar to a climb.
Less bulky and less warm than a pressotherapy device, it shines with its versatility because it can be used statically or mobilely. In addition, it appeals to patients, most of whom find the product funny and feel like cosmonauts. The French Cycling Federation (FFC), enthusiastic about the product, has already decided to equip itself with it in order to set up tests and protocols during the training of its track cycling teams!
