见证患者东山再起、临床复健师事半功倍的双赢
ICARE 系统既非纯主动或纯被动式的复健系统;而是提供「按需辅助」的原则提供适时、即时性辅助,与传统治疗师在对患者进行步态训练时所提供的身体上、直觉上的辅助相似。 ICARE 不仅节省以往动辄长达数个小时临床治疗师的手动辅助,还为患者提供更多使用复健科技辅具的机会与练习次数,使他们能够逐步改善自身的步行与健康状况

ICARE 是一套完全整合的系统,于 Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital and Research Institute in Lincoln, Nebraska 中开发完成,可为因中风、外伤性脑损伤 (TBI)、局部性脊髓损伤 (SCI) 及其他伤害或疾病而导致神经肌肉失调的患者,提供安全、有效的协助方法

ICARE 系统既非单一主动或单一被动式的复健系统;而是提供「按需辅助」的原则提供适时、即时性辅助。这与治疗师在对患者进行步态训练时所提供的身体上、直觉上的辅助相似

ICARE 不仅可以省去临床治疗师以往动辄长达数个小时的手动提携及伸展四肢工作,还为患者提供更多使用复健科技辅具的机会与练习次数,使他们能够逐步改善自身的步行能力与心血管健康

ICARE 的腿部运动与步行时的运动学及肌电模式极度相似。研究开发报告显示,ICARE能针对患者的心肺与肌肉状况调整训练内容与强度,有效协助重拾行走能力和肌肉弹性及强度。另外,在开发过程中,研究团队特别针对体重辅助系统、马达辅助系统,以及利用摇杆辅助的手部运动轨迹与效用进行量测与观察,确保ICARE系统可以有效达到重複训练。ICARE系统平易近人的设计与操作适合在复健机构与家庭使用

让身体无力、麻痺、有平衡困难,以及正从重大伤害或疾病中逐渐康复之患者,重新学习步行并让身体保持在可活动的状态,是复健的重要目标。以往若要重新取回步行的能力,患者往往需要进行上千次的类步伐训练,才能使神经具备持久的可塑性。通常这类患者都会面临适合其受损或弱化肌肉的复健设备不足之窘境。ICARE 就是为了解决这一窘境而诞生的

Brooks Rehabilitation 引进 ICARE 已经 2 年多了。这是我们中心使用率最高的器材之一。我们使用 ICARE 治疗任何步态或平衡机能受损的患者,无论其诊断结果为何;适用领域包括骨科、神经病学、老年医学、肥胖病学,以及儿科。我们的病患和员工都乐于使用 ICARE,因为它的功能相当丰富,且设定也非常容易。它可调整的速度及跨距也同时确保了所有的训练都能配合每个病患的需求进行调整。有的病患参与了我们的独立计划,他们来我们中心只是为了使用 ICARE 来保持健康,并维持生活品质

使用 ICARE 的员工都相当高兴,因为藉由使用 ICARE,我们可需要的员工协助较少,在跑步机上花费时间也较短,为我们的病患提供更长的踏步时间。它同时也提供了一种可在安全环境下增加踏步时间的功能,使得我们可以在进行较为功能性的作业,例如伸展或旋转身躯时,让下肢持续运动以增加动态平衡。员工和病患都非常喜欢 ICARE,主要是因为无论病患的功能水平如何,它都能提供别的机器无法提供的心血管锻鍊

我们曾经有位罹患腰丛麻痺症的患者,无法在他主治医师的办公室裡产生静态的肌电图。然而当他以较高的速度使用 ICARE 时,就能产生动态的肌电图。在持续使用 ICARE 进行复健几个月后,该名病患已经可以在不使用任何辅助装置的情况下跑步,并与孩子一同玩耍了。在这项发现及机器的介入之前,他原本预期未来都必须要倚赖膝盖支架,才能站立及行走

整体而言,ICARE 是一套价格相当实惠的复健科技产品,能让任何临床治疗师为任何病患设计一套高强度的复健计画

Project Walk Orlando 的使命是让脊髓损伤的患者,拥有发挥最大复原潜力的机会,并改善他们的生活品质。我们藉由拟定专业的一对一、尖端、积极且全面的运动计画,达成我们的使命。ICARE 系统在协助我们的客户和员工达成这个使命的过程中,扮演了不可或缺的重要角色

我们在客户的运动计划中,每天都会使用 ICARE 系统来进行高强度的心血管及步态训练运动。从客户及员工的角度而言,ICARE 对于我们的设施来说是一项成功的投资,因为不仅是设定过程相当有效率,训练师也能确保客户以舒适且安全的姿势,进行一切活动。客户可以在支援脊髓损伤训练之重複性运动科学的 ICARE 系统上,完成上千次的踩踏动作。除此之外,客户也能利用回馈功能,如果他们移动椭圆机的速度超过马达的速度,机器会让他们知道。在锻鍊过程中,这项功能总是能让他们更加努力,并且更有动力我們在決定為 PWO 募款並購買 ICARE 系統前考慮了許多因素。這些因素包括系統在減少訓練師人力付出的情況下,改善客戶健康、循環,以及機能的能力。而 ICARE 可以讓我們的客戶進行原先可能需要多名訓練師、助理及耗費龐大時間的上千個步態訓練

物理治疗师 Judith M. Burnfield 博士是 Institute for Rehabilitation Science and Engineering 的所长,运动及神经科学中心主任,以及 Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital and Research Institute 的 Clifton Chair in Physical Therapy and Movement Sciences。在 University of Southern California 取得了肌肉动力学博士学位,并在 Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center 中完成了动作病理学的博士后研究。在 Creighton University、University of Nebraska — Lincoln、University of Nebraska Medical Center、以及 University of South Dakota 兼任教职

她的研究目标为:(1) 强化伤残及非伤残个体的生活独立性及生活品质,并聚焦于行动失调,例如步态;(2) 预防慢性疾病患者的继发性併发症;(3) 透过开发及应用临床研究和技术,拓展复健治疗师对现有、逐步增加,以及未来社会健保需求对象的应对能力。她教学的重点包括正常及病理性步态、矫形学、修复学及生物力学
