Versatile Simple Dynamic Fun Original Multi functional
The MOBILE ARM is a multi functional exercise device designed to use as a static, dynamic and mobile exercise system for the upper extremity. The basic design utilizes a circular wood base, an 8-foot extension pole in the center and locking wheels under the base. Upper extremity Exercises are accomplished using a combination of the mobile arm and use of resistance bands, sliding cylinders, and reach and place clips. ***NEW!! Now comes with a hook and mini-band apparatus for additional resistive exercises
The 18-page full- color exercise booklet provides pictures with the exercises demonstrated.
The universal joint at the base of the system allows for 360 degrees of movement in the mobile arm, allowing for multiple exercises that are resistive and non-resistive, with extensive varying degrees of challenge.
The beginning phase of movement (static) includes a stable base with wheels locked and the injured extremity holding the mobile arm for general movement such as shoulder circles, elbow push pull, shoulder sliding up and down, and entire upper extremity stretching in many planes of motion.
When using the arm for resistive band exercises, (dynamic component) the patient engages both the injured and non-injured extremities to complete the exercises and the mobile arm and bands can be used interchangeably. This is a dynamic component that is unique to this system and allows a fresh approach to resistance bands.
The therapist can also assist with band exercises by holding either the mobile arm or the bands and guiding the patient through the exercises.
When the mobile arm is held steady during ambulation/rolling (mobile component) of the device, this brings in level of stability and proprioception to the upper extremity with the subsequent goal of strength and control. The 8-foot extension pole allows maximum stretch and strengthening for even the tallest patient.
The sliding cylinders can be used for simply sliding in any position of the mobile arm, or for reaching and placing the multiple sliders onto the mobile arm for the desired range of motion positions.
The patient can sit or stand to reach with the injured extremity and place the clips on the mobile arm.
The mobile arm pole can be removed and in its shortest position used as another means of overhead stretching by the patient either sitting or lying down.
When fully extended position the therapist and patient can work in tandem, sitting or standing, completing stretching to the upper extremities.
Short on Space? The mobile arm rolls and sets up even in the smallest of spaces!
No matter how you choose to use the device, your patient’s mobility needs can be addressed in a dynamic, fun and challenging manner!
