Valedo is an FDA listed wearable back coach for back pain sufferers looking for a personalized and safe self-therapy that helps reduce low back pain. The medical device combines latest sensor technology with a dynamic and intuitive software, transforming 17 unique back exercise movements, incorporated into 45 therapeutic exercises, into motivating and interactive games. Valedo is designed, over time, to improve movement awareness for increased stability and balance, restore motion to vertebral joints, and redevelop deep muscles for enhanced strength, all of which can help back pain sufferers achieve sustained back health.
The user simply downloads the software from the App Store or Google Play Store on a mobile device, applies one sensor to the chest and the second sensor to the lower back, and starts the personalized back exercises. By following the path or matching the actions of the on-screen avatar, the users is guided safely through precise, therapeutic movements which target one or a combination of therapeutic goals. The sensors detect and respond to micro movements of the upper body, provide real time movement feedback and detect incorrect movements all of which ensures a tailored and controlled therapy. As the Valedo software progresses with the user it also allows performance and progress tracking, motivating the user not only to get moving and stay on track, but also to continuously improve on their achievements.
Grounded in movement science and physiotherapy and developed by Hocoma, leader in the development of robotic and sensor-based devices for functional movement therapy, Valedo is the solution for an independent yet guided and effective low back therapy in the comfort of one’s own home.
Valedo consists of two wireless Bluetooth movement recognition sensors that attach with medical tape to the chest and lower back. These light weight sensors communicate with the free, downloadable app on your device to guide you through a series of games.
