H-Man home rental programme in full swing!

More and more patients in Singapore are opting to continue their arm rehabilitation therapy in the comfort of their home.

When offered this possibility, Madam Goh*, suffering from a stroke since June 2020, tried the H-Man home rental programme and got equipped with a state-of-the-art neurorehabilitation robot in her home. After just one month of exercising with fun and engaging rehabilitative games on the robotic device, her occupational therapist measured an improvement of 6 points in her FMA score (Fugl-Meyer Assessment, recommended as core measures in stroke recovery).

The new home rental programme includes access to our portable train-at-home device H-Man, a personalised therapy plan for therapy and weekly 1-1 sessions with qualified occupational therapists – all in the comfort of the patient’s home!

“Launching our new home rental programme is a major milestone in ARTICARES’ vision to provide facilitated access to state-of-the-art rehabilitation therapy”, says Asif Hussain, CEO of ARTICARES. “This offers patients the convenience to train in their personal home environment whenever they want to, while staying close contact with their therapists, who are given detailed progress reports and have more time to serve more patients.

We are looking forward to analysing feedback about the clinical improvement, patient engagement and overall customer experience of this exciting programme.”
