Rehabilitation at the Hospital
MUSTEC is a device to support effortless rehabilitation through assisted exercise that lifts the burden placed on rehabilitation personnel.
What About Those Unable to Stand Due to Serious Injury?
Give them the help they need through supportive technology.
MUSTEC makes this possible. For the first time anywhere, people can participate in rehabilitation through squats that require less than the person’s own body weight.
What Makes MUSTEC Different from Existing Solutions?
If you squat or bend normally, your knees will come out before your toes.This will be a burden on the knee and cause injury.
With MUSTEC, the knees do not extend past the toes, putting almost no load on the knees, hips or joints, and almost no load on the anterior cruciate ligament. This kind of rehabilitation typically requires a helper, but MUSTEC makes it possible to do this rehabilitation on your own.
What Does It Mean to Reduce Your Bodyweight Using Supportive Technology?
When a person weighing 60 kg stands up, a load of 60 kg is applied to both feet. This is no problem for healthy people, but for those with pain in their knees or waist, or those who are bedridden and have difficulty walking, this 60 kg can be a considerable burden. Remaining off your feet, however, will only lead to a further decrease in strength.
So what if we reduced the load of 60 kg on the legs to half of that? This would make it possible to perform exercise that would normally be impossible and it improve your ability to recover the strength to support your own bodyweight.
MUSTEC makes it possible to increase or decrease the load by adjusting the support weight located behind the seat. MUSTEC can be used to safely get you walking on your own and building stronger muscles with little to no burden on your joints and ligaments.
Quality Rehabilitation Equipment for Patients and Hospitals
The sooner patients began rehabilitation after surgery, the higher the probability of returning their daily life. Patients stuck in bed for a long time lose walking strength and leg strength rapidly diminishes. This loss of leg strength makes it even harder to get back up. Becoming bedridden creates a difficult situation surrounding daily care for patients and their family. MUSTEC helps with rehabilitation immediately after surgery.
MUSTEC Helps Athletes Recover Earlier from ACL Injuries
MUSTEC helps to safely increase muscle strength. MUSTEC supports the independence of bed-ridden elderly people who are in poor condition. MUSTEC’s safety and muscle strengthening effects were recognized through testing, and the same safety and effects were recognized in the training and rehabilitation of athletes as well. An increased load specification for athletes was additionally developed.
MUSTEC’s main feature is supporting rehabilitative exercise using loads less than the user’s own body weight along with the capability to perform higher load strength training thanks to its multi-focus hybrid system (due to patent constraints, exact versions do not exist in both Japan and the US.)
There is no other example of exercise equipment that combines two roles like this into one. MUSTEC’s safety and support help the elderly get the most effective rehabilitation possible.
Performing hack squats while sitting in a chair prevents users from going too low, which allows for low-risk and stable rehabilitative exercise. The safety of this approach has been proven through testing.
Hack squats typically require a helper, but MUSTEC makes it possible to do this exercise on your own.
If you squat or bend normally, your knees will come out before your toes.This can be a burden on the knee and cause injury.
With MUSTEC, the knees do not extend past the toes, putting almost no load on the knees, hips or joints, similar to the previously mentioned tests with the elderly, proving how safe it is.
