The Spirit Medical Systems Group bike ergometers are intended to be used in aiding in the physical rehabilitation process for patients with orthopedic and neurological problems. Also used in sports medicine, wellness and general conditioning programs.
The Spirit MU100 Upright Lower Body Ergometer addresses lower-body conditioning with advanced options for optimal knee positioning. Clinicians may input desired knee flexion angles and the software will suggest the pedal and the seat’s fore/aft position. Variables such as body symmetry and limb length can be taken into account for clinicians to finely tailor to every patient’s needs.
The Spirit MU100 Upright Lower Body Ergometer is equipped with the standard MA900 Rehabilitation Adjustable Crank, allowing clinicians to address lower extremity range of motion differences by individual positioning of the pedals.
TUV listed to UL 60601-1, CAN/CSA-C22.2 No. 60601-1:08, CE conformity to EN 60601-1 EMC, Compliance to EN 60601-1-2
Typical applications for this product are
- Patient warm up before physical therapy session
- Have the patient pedal to improve range of motion after knee / hip / ankle surgery.
- Allow patients to perform cardiovascular exercise
Unique uses for the Spirit MU100
- Adjustable crank allows patients to pedal in smaller range of knee motion, from 15 degrees to full range.
- Symmetry program measures balance between left and right pedal stroke. Graphical Bio-feedback display motivates patients to maintain even power symmetry between left and right legs.
Other features of the MU100
- Work range up to 750 watts (60 rpm) when level settings are at 15 watts per level
- Indexed seat positioning accommodates users from 4' 10" to 6' 7"
- Heart Rate monitoring using the hand grips or optional heart rate chest-strap.
Adjustable Pedal Cranks
Enables a clinician to adjust the bike to accommodate a patient’s ROM performance capabilities. This includes independently, single side or bi-lateral adjustments from a limited range-of-motion as small as 15 degrees through full range-of motion.
Forward and reverse pedaling for instantaneous retro-cycling.
Multiple Resistance Modes
Constant resistance, constant power and Isokinetic resistance
Minimizes impulse loading
Range from under 5 watts up to 1,750 watts
Documentable Patient Positioning
All seat and pedal crank adjustments have numbered indexing for consistent patient set-up from visit to visit.
Multiple Seat Adjustments
- Up/down seat position detents
- Fore/aft patient positioning
- Hand-tight, positive locking knobs
Software Assisted Patient Set-Up
Measurement Of Bi-Lateral Power
(example: Left 41 watts - Right 34 watts)
Sub-Max Vo2 Testing
Advantages and Clinical Applications
Closed Kinetic Chain
Begin exercise earlier, safely, and impact free within the pain free ROM thereby reducing the patient’s “fear factor”
Incrementally adjustable up/down, fore/aft seat, and pedal crank for easy patient set-up
Exercise In Both Directions
Active and passive movement in both directions
Monitoring assists in improving limb deficiencies and walking gait
Patella femoral conditions, total knee replacements, ACL, MCL, and PCL repairs, other ligamentous repairs, arthritic conditions, tendonitis, and many more conditions will benefit
Electronic And Software Features
- Intuitive interface for ease of operation
- Unique knee angle data input allows entry of desired ROMs to determine seat and pedal crank settings minimizing the guess work
- Set-up mode allows quick entry of patient data, resistance resolution, settings, and how the information is displayed
- Large, easy-to-read displays: Time, RPM, Watts, Calories, METs, Heart Rate, Power, and much more
- Multiple Programs include: Quick Start, Manual Mode, Preset Hill, Plateau, and Interval profiles;
- Custom Facility protocol program, VO2 sub-max YMCA protocol, Isokinetic speed based resistance (from 25 to 100 RPM)
- Unique Symmetry program that measures and displays power around the pedal stroke. Biofeedback encourages patients to maintain power between right and left leg
