Thanks to a compression/decompression action, GMOVE-SUIT is a device with a wide field of application. By regulating the pressure and using one of the three recorded programs, the possibilities are numerous. Muscle strengthening is one of the GMOVE-SUIT indications. In the rehabilitation phase, for sportsmen and for people with neurodegenerative disorders, there is something for everyone.
The goal of muscle strengthening during the rehabilitation phase is to regain muscle capacities lost due to immobilization, after a trauma or pathology. Having been affected and weakened, the tissues must regain their strength by maintaining physical activity.
GMOVE-SUIT supports the patient during muscle strengthening sessions at the end of rehabilitation. By applying significant pressure on the lower limbs, the patient does not need to add extra weight to intensify his exercises. The pressure will simulate working with weight without the possible effect of a relapse.
In a sport approach
During sports sessions, muscle strengthening can improve performance. Increasing weights and loads is one of the main ways to achieve this. However, these methods can lead to joint pathologies or traumatological problems, and thus stop the progression.
By using GMOVE-SUIT, some of these pathologies can be avoided, while keeping a high intensity. Indeed, compression simulates intense work while using lighter loads, which will relieve the joints.
People with nervous system disorders (neurodegenerative) have, by nature, problems related to proprioception and posture. As a result of these disorders, patients are impacted at several degrees, ranging from less fluid walking to wheelchair travel.
With GMOVE-SUIT, patients suffering from various pathologies such as Elhers Danlos syndrome, multiple sclerosis or Parkinson’s disease regain “sensations” in their lower limbs. GMOVE-SUIT helps to regain better posture and eventual rehabilitation to walking. This dynamic rebalancing will help strengthen the muscles and thus, in the long term, regain certain capacities by getting out of this spiral of deconditioning.
