The Isodynamics REVIVER Devices

REVIVER was designed and created to naturally radiate strength and healing signals through the body's neural pathways, nervous systems and cells, whilst activating areas throughout the body that may have become dormant. 

There are three models:

 

  1. A.D.A.M. is a manually operated device which supports the user as they tilt their centre of gravity to move the device, in slow radial wave-like motions. Toning and conditioning their entire body using this simple user friendly motion.
     

  2. E.V.E. is an electric automated therapeutic device that safely tilts and moves the patient in slow radial wave-like motions to exercise, tone and condition the entire body in a passive and uniform manner. 
     

  3. BERENICE BED uses a bed platform where patients can be exercised, toned and conditioned by the slow radial wave like motions in a laying position. To receive the benefits of exercise that they would normally find very difficult to receive. 

All three REVIVER devices have been listed on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods as a Class 1 Medical Device.

REVIVER is now demonstrating remarkable results in improving strength, balance and mobility in a wide range of patients that have previously not been able to receive the benefits of exercise. Including those with 

neuromuscular disease and conditions, such as Parkinson's, Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis and other impairments that exercise has a beneficial effect.

 

The device has been under testing and development at a pilot clinic in Sydney, Australia. Outcomes at the pilot clinic have been extremely promising, with PD users experiencing a 22% (p<1x10-5; N=15, unpublished data) increase in mobility (reduction in timed up and go times; TUG) over an average period of 26 days.

 

Users also report improved balance, improved muscle tone, and capacity to return to desisted activities such as walking unassisted, climbing stairs and swimming. Numerous patients had lost the ability to walk unassisted but regained this ability after 2-10 weeks of training on this machine.

 

Although other therapies may feature elements of the above benefits, no device to our knowledge has all the of these attributes in a single machine. Furthermore, given the tiled motion of the head in this therapy, it may also have an effect on glymphatic fluid and CSF flow in the brain.

How REVIVER Works

REVIVER works for a wide range of people, including those with disabilities, as well as elite athletes, by capturing and exercising all the muscles, throughout the body, with a single user-friendly motion.

It works by tilting the user at an angle in a slow radial motion.

The vestibular balancing system is strongly activated, to a degree not experienced in everyday life, or during other types of balance training exercises. This causes muscles involved to tension and relax in a consistent and uniform manner in the reflexes trying to maintain the body in an upright position.

This process (that is currently in clinical trials for Parkinson's disease with Monash University and the CSIRO) instigates an automatic reflex response in the brain to activate the muscles throughout the body, including those that have become dormant due to age, injury or disability.

This reflex activating REVIVER motion, fires the neural pathways and nervous system, throughout the body which has anecdotally and remarkably shown to improve strength, balance, mobility and wellbeing.
