integrating muscle activity with muscle function.
(optional) EMG Data Acquisition Package
Patient protocols for testing and exercise are stored on the
computer hard disk and can be transferred to individual floppy diskettes. Large amounts of
data can be easily stored, retrieved, or compared. Ariel users may develop customized data
bases based on normative data or their own patient populations. Research files may be
transferred between Ariel users by modem.
Interactive capability allows less patient supervision.
Expands treatment capabilities, minimizes set up time, and
increases earning potential with minimal capital investment.
Controls, records and evaluates movement, strength and
endurance on a continuous basis while storing information on easy to read color graphs,
charts, and tables.

Simple to Operate
Equipment continually adjusts to patient for safe, complete
rehabilitation. No emergency stop control necessary.
No mechanical system breakdown. Smooth, even movement
throughout the range of motion.
Exercise velocity and resistance in each direction are
independently programmed and controlled. Allows training and comparison of antagonistic
muscle groups. Conditions both the musculoskeletal and cardiovascular system.
Senses and automatically responds to patient performance up
to 16,000 times per second to produce precise control of resistance and speed during
performance of the chosen range of motion.
