Clinical Validation

ARTICARES’ products are designed to make sure it delivers clinical value before reaching our consumers. For H-man, ARTICARES has collaborated with major hospitals in Singapore and internationally renowned institutes such as Imperial College, London to provide the best possible solution.
Clinical trials were conducted on patients who were divided into two groups equal sized groups to study the efficacy of H-Man as compared to conventional therapy. The outcome of the therapy was studied and recorded at regular intervals.
Clinical studies with the H-Man showed that:
– H-Man based rehabilitation helped patients improve and perform activities of daily living better than rest.
– Patients gained significant ability to coordinate and control their arm movements
– Patients could train under minimal supervision
– Therapists’ workload was significantly reduced.

Continuum of Rehabilitation

Patients can train at home, hospital or community centre without compromise on quality of training and recover faster. Ability to train with the device at all stages including within the comfort of patient’s own homes, ensures familiarity to training methodology with consistent training technique and above all, reduces the stress and anxiety of incurring high costs traditionally associated with recovery.

Improved Productivity

The H-Man is clinically validated to reduce workload of therapists by as much as ~65%. Studies with the H-Man have shown that using the H-Man lead to reduced departmental costs or enable therapists to cater to more patients on regular basis thereby increasing revenue. Financial and operational benefits are experienced by the therapist.

Portable and Compact

Requiring a standard tabletop area and weighing just ~14 kg, the H-Man is supremely compact and portable robotic rehabilitation device suitable for use in homes, hospitals and community centres. It is designed to ensure compactness for use in areas with limited availability such as homes or smaller community centres. The lightweight of the device enables it to be easily ported around by one person; ideal for home-based service providers to cater to patients seeking therapy at home.

Ergonomic Handle

The handles have a non-slip design and material used to ensure comfortable grip for the patient. Patients grasp the handle and train by playing games suited to their training need.
Simple slide-in and slide-out design ensures that handles can be easily attached or detached from the H-Man
Additionally, H-Man can be offered with variety of handles including sensor-embedded handles to suit the needs of the user.
H-Man’s inherent safety and ease of use is enhanced by the pair of haptic switches that feature on either side of the robot. Through the switches the forces applied to the handle can be switched on or off.
It is designed to be responsive to a light press from a patient or caregiver providing increasing safety and confidence of operating the H-Man.
The halo-like circular lighting around the Haptic switch indicates the nature of the H-Man haptic feedback while providing additional visual gratification:

Redefining Personalization in therapy

The H-Man can complement the training activities of a therapist. It can assess user arm movement, identify coordination issues, assist or resist through physical forces and adapt the training task of the user based on the user needs.
The personalization of training coupled with ~10 times higher intensity of user training on the H-man provides a platform for the user to experience faster recovery.
