DigiTrainer – Therapy of sensory and motor functions of the hand

What is DigiTrainer?

DigiTrainer is a therapy device for motor and sensory rehabilitation of hand and fingers. It mobilizes fingers with limited degrees of movement and helps to treat high muscle tone. 

The principle of action is unique: It is based on the combination of vibration, movement and pressure. The vibration promotes perception and blood circulation of hand and fingers. Furthermore the DigiTrainer stretches and massages every finger, while fixing them with mild pressure.

What makes the DigiTrainer special

  • Rehabilitation of hand functions
  • Mobilization of functionally limited fingers
  • Reducation of muscle tone (reduce spasticity)
  • Treatment of sensory perception
  • efficacy clinically proven

What experiences exist with the DigiTrainer?

Neglect patients showed improved perception to the affected side; improved sensorimotoric perception of the fingers; better mobility of the functionally impaired fingers as preparation for self-training; reduction of muscle tone.

The handling and operation of the device is simple and understandable. We experience great acceptance by patients and above all positive feedback.

During a demonstration [...] RehaDigit was able to convince us to use it since April 2017 in the fields of orthopaedics, trauma surgery, rheumatology and neurology. The handling and operation of the device is simple and understandable. We feel a great acceptance on the part of the patients and experience above all positive feedback. Even patients who are rather anxious, even afraid of pain and thus avoid movements or are afraid of mobilisation by the therapist can be very well introduced to movements by RehaDigit. In the field of neurology a good tone regulation can be achieved, the sensory system is stimulated, constructive activities succeed more positively. The possibility of adjusting the speed and vibration intensity, as well as the hand and wrist position, is very variable and can therefore be adapted to the patient's abilities and progress. During treatment with RehaDigit, our patients wear a cloth glove, which facilitates disinfection of the device. We do not want to miss the RehaDigit in our daily work anymore.

As an outpatient rehabilitation centre for neurology and geriatrics, we use RehaDigit within the occupational therapy department. It is used both as part of individual training in the arm laboratory group and as preparation for ADL training in individual therapy. We use RehaDigit for the passive movement of the finger joints in priority clinical pictures in which sensorimotor disorders occur, such as those that occur increasingly after a stroke, multiple sclerosis or some rheumatic diseases. A direct short-term to medium-term effect in our patients is the regulation of muscle tone and improved blood circulation. Due to the various settings such as speed, oscillation, vibration and duration, the RehaDigit can be used by a large number of patient groups described above. Their feedback is usually positive and treatment with RehaDigit is usually described as beneficial. Occasionally, patients express the wish for a thumb extension. For the therapists work with RehaDigit, the intuitive operation via the touch display can be emphasized [...].
The Asklepios Schlossberg Clinic is a facility for early neurological rehabilitation Phase B. Since September 2017 we have integrated RehaDigit into the treatment of the upper extremities. Patients with spasticity (max. MAS grade 1), hyper- and hypotonus, sensitivity disorders and MFT 0-4 are treated first and foremost. The following effects have been observed in therapy so far: Neglect patients showed an improved perception of the affected side; improved sensomotoric perception of the fingers; better mobility of the functionally impaired fingers as preparation for self-training; reduction of muscle tone. Overall, the device is well received by patients and the treating therapists as a therapy support. The RehaDigit is user-friendly and can be operated independently by patients with good cognitive performance. Thus, it can also be used in therapy-free times for additional mobilization of functionally limited fingers and sensitivity disorders.
