The Icone, an advanced robotic system developed by ICan Robotics, is a revolutionary solution that offers personalized and intensive therapy to neurological patients, either at home or in a clinical setting.
The Icone robotic rehabilitation system is an innovative platform that supports neurological patients in their recovery and helps them on their way to independent living. It is the first plug-and-play robotic system designed for neurorehabilitation of the upper limbs and the only full-featured robotic solution that can be used both at hospitals and at home. The Icone is portable and easy to use anywhere as it requires only minimal space.
The system is easy to program and allows therapists to implement any therapeutic program that involves elbow flexion-extension, shoulder protraction-retraction, abduction-adduction and other standard exercises. Based on the latest research in the field of robot-assisted rehabilitation, it provides patients with effective, evidence-based therapy programs and offers clinicians objective data that they can use to assess patients' performance and progress. The Icone can be used both in the acute phase, immediately after an adverse event, such as a stroke, and in the chronic phase, several months after the event.
The system offers interactive games that progressively challenge patients and always adapt to their level and progress, while the system's embedded sensors continuously monitor their achievements. The interactive exercises can be adapted to patients' individual needs using the system's multi-touch graphical interface and the information collected by the sensors can also be accessed using mobile and web technologies, including smartphones, tablets and the cloud. The exercise parameters and performance data can be easily managed using the Icone software suite.
Icone was developed by ICan Robotics, an Italian company dedicated to improving the quality of life of people with disabilities and physical limitations, including those with pathological or traumatic causes, as well as limitations linked with aging. Founded as a spin-off from the Campus Bio-Medico University in Rome, the company develops robotic technologies that can be integrated into everyday environments and are designed for the rehabilitation of patients with disabling illnesses.
