What is the C-Mill?
The C-Mill is unmatched in its functionalities and clinical opportunities. It can serve patients from early rehab, learning to stand, step and walk again, all the way to outbound patients who need to improve their overall walking performance and to reduce the risk of falling. The C-Mill is a treadmill for evaluation and training of impaired gait and balance using augmented and virtual reality.
Functional walking with targeted treatment options
Repeatable and variable training
Motivating, engaging and fun for patient
Training in a safe environment
Assessment of patient’s gait and gait adaptability
Objective measurements and testing
Monitor performance over time
Clinical report options with or without video recordings
No preparation time; session can start immediately after turning on the system
Start rehabilitation as early as possible
Start rehabilitation as early as possible with the optional balance suite and body weight support. Train and evaluate a patient’s gait adaptability using projections on the treadmill surface. Teach a patient to look forward while walking with the VR suite applications. A save environment is provided with an inbuilt safety frame or a body weight support.
Best Practice Rehabilitation
C-Mill therapy is based on five important recommendations included in most general clinical guidelines for rehabilitation after brain injury.
Start rehabilitation as early as possible because of the safety harness and body weight support.
It is easy to train often and perform many repetitions.
It is easy to offer a variety of changing exercises. The C-Mill offers various default protocols and application.
Practicing day-to-day tasks can be trained with applications focused on adjusting and adapting gait, and cognitive tasks.
Progress can objectively be monitored by saving the results into reports. Also, real-time immediate feedback is possible.
• Dan’s directions are clear. I almost always know what he wants me to do. When I don’t, he is aware of that and tells me in another way.
• Dan explains the impact on my body of what he asks me to do. I don’t remember anyone doing that before. His explanations help me understand what we are doing and that helps me follow his directions.
• Dan has a subtle but effective way of correcting me. What seems like an off-hand comment as he walks by reminds me what I should be doing. I don’t feel like I have been told I am doing something wrong.
• Dan is concerned that I feel successful. He will modify something he has asked me to do, explaining what to do when I feel I am being pushed too far. That is valuable when I am doing exercises at home. I know how to adjust what I am doing depending on how I feel (see the second bullet).
• Nice guy. I enjoy coming in to see him.
• Agape. The atmosphere is relaxed but professional. And respectful of the clients.
• I enjoy the Virtual Reality Treadmill and will miss the fun when I am discharged.
