Disclaimers

VAST.Rehab trainings are recommended to be used under the supervision of qualified medical personnel. VAST.Rehab can be also applied for home use, but it must be strictly used according to the recommendations of a medical care provider who is knowledgeable about the user's specific needs.

VAST.Rehab can also be used as a fitness system without any supervision of qualified medical personnel, but this option is reserved only for people without any health problems. Anyhow we always recommend to consult a doctor before starting any new physical activity plan.

VAST.Rehab can be considered to be a medical product only when it is used under the supervision of qualified medical personnel. This document provides details about a medical product that may not be available in all countries and may not have received approval or market clearance by all governmental regulatory bodies throughout the world. Nothing herein should be construed as a solicitation or promotion of the product or of an indication of any specific use for the product which is not authorized by the laws and regulations of the country where the reader of this information resides.

VAST.Rehab purpose is to support functional therapy for people who have lost the function of or have restricted function in their body or cognitive functions caused by cerebral, neurogenic, spinal, muscular or bone-related disorders. Considering the contraindications and everyone's individual profile, the device is used in the case of:

  • Cerebrovascular Accidents
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Parkinson`s Disease and Extrapyramidal Syndromes
  • Brain-tumor operations
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Muscular atrophy
  • Deconditioning - Muscle weakness due to lack of mobility
  • Endoprosthesis for hip, knee, elbow and shoulder joints
  • Following stable fractures of vertebra and/or extremities
  • Limb amputations with or without prosthesis
  • Balance and Equilibrium disturbances

Just as for any other therapy, the therapist in charge is always responsible for the indication. Functional training with VAST.Rehab is not possible or indicated in every case. In general, the device must not be used in the following cases to avoid causing harm to the client. The following precautions must therefore be observed in particular:

  • Severe osteoporosis
  • Contractures affecting the relevant extremity
  • Skin lesions in the area of the relevant extremity
  • Joint subluxation or severe pain in the target joint
  • Severe spasticity
  • Severe spontaneous movements, e.g. ataxia, dyskinesia, myoclonic jerks
  • Severe postural instability
  • Cardiac arrhythmia, hypotension or severe hypertension
  • Confused or non-cooperative clients
  • Severe cognitive deficits
  • Clients requiring isolation due to infections
  • Severe visual problems (client is not able to see displayed elements on the computer screen)

The following contraindications must therefore be observed in particular:

  • Not controlled epileptic seizure within the past two years, or photosensitive clients
  • Retinal disease which may be exasperated by watching video games
  • Bone instability (non-consolidated fractures in vertebrae or extremities)
  • Osteomyelitis or other inflammatory/infectious diseases
  • Bone Cancer, including spinal tumors or metastases to vertebrae or joints
  • Pronounced, fixed contractures affecting the relevant extremity
  • Open skin lesions in the area of the relevant extremity
  • Non-stable vital functions: Pulmonary or cardio-circulatory contraindications
  • Spondylolisthesis (second degree or higher) or with neurological signs

The above list does not claim to be exhaustive. In case of clients with chronic diseases and/or clients with illnesses coexisting with the one in which therapy VAST.Rehab’s support is used and/or clients who have been immobile for a long period of time, special attention is required and short training sessions are recommended to begin with. An over-reaction is expected from these clients if training sessions are too long. On the other hand, clients often tend to have a certain euphoric reaction after the initial treatment, and want to have longer and/or more frequent training sessions. This can result, in the case of the clients described above, in excessive strain being exerted on ligaments, tendons and joints.

The decision as to whether a client is suitable for treatment always comes under the remit of the therapist in charge, who has sole medical responsibility for the treatment. As part of this, he must evaluate in particular, in each individual case, possible risks and side-effects of the treatment against the benefit gained from it. In addition, the clients’s individual situation plays just as important a role as the basic risk assessment for specific clients groups.
