In order to carry out effective training which is adjusted to individual needs, or in order to support rehabilitation measures, specific requirements must be fulfilled by medical training equipment. It is important to set a defined resistance characteristic (e. g. power-speed behavior). Conventional systems cannot respond to these needs, or only to a small degree.
FLUDICON offers a new attenuation concept for use in fitness and rehab. The training equipment is equipped with FLUDICON's Smart PID System, whereby the desired forces can be chosen by the operator electronically according to given characteristics. In combination with an angle sensor and appropriate controls, training and movement sequences as well as the forces needed for them can be set according to the patient's needs The outstanding innovations are simple and especially lightweight design of training equipment, as well as missing weights--they are no longer necessary.
The characteristics of a Smart PID System for use in rehab and fitness equipment can be summarized as follows:
