NEWS: VEMO for COVID patients

Primaria Dr. Pucks-Faes Medical Director, Tirol-Kliniken GmbH, LKH Hochzirl-Natters, Zirl

The VEMO system is a useful addition to the rehabilitation team for the mobilisation of post-COVID patients. By adjusting the training parameters, an ideal load seems to be found for the patient and a positive influence on the ventilation of the lungs, the cardiovascular, the digestive and the senso-motor system is achieved. For the patients in their isolation, this means not only a sensible rehabilitative and certainly also preventive treatment. It is also a very welcome change, which has a clearly positive effect on the patients´ psyche and mood. This is usually very battered anyway and has a positive effect on the entire team treating the patient.




Reactive Robotics' goal is to set the new gold standard of Very Early Mobilization of critically ill patients.

By providing medical robotic solutions, we

  • assist nurses and therapists in taking care of patients
  • enable faster recovery for critically ill patients
  • make care more humane by allowing robotics to work hand-in-hand with nurses and therapists
  • improve economic efficiency in the healthcare system.

Our clients are hospitals that want to provide their patients with the best possible care during their path towards recovery while supporting their clinical staff with the best available technology.

Better Care for Lower Costs


The healthcare challenge

In our aging society, the cost for healthcare is rising. The healthcare sector of many countries is being pushed to its breaking point:

  • An increasing number of patients require care
  • A decreasing number of nurses and therapists must shoulder the work

Economic and demographic trends demand increasing efficiency in the healthcare system.

Reactive Robotics addresses these challenges by introducing robot-assisted therapy with the VEMO® system. The VEMO® system takes over the physically demanding task of performing therapy so that nurses and therapists can focus their attention on the patient. This way, the VEMO® system makes mobilization therapy more humane.

Demographic Changes with major Impact on Healthcare

Critical care beds in Germany
Available nurses

In times of an aging population and a shortage of healthcare professionals, new therapy interventions need to be developed.
Medical advances lead to an increasing survival rate of critically ill patients.

This is reflected in an increasing number of ICU beds – by 2030, Germany alone will need to add 8.000 ICU beds to its existing 27.000.

By 2030, Germany alone is facing a gap in available ICU care-taking personnel of 29.000 nurses - a total of 84.000 nurses would be needed, 55.000 are predicted to be available.

Already today 2.000 nurses in the ICU are missing in Germany.

VEMO® stands for Very Early Mobilization


Making rehabilitation therapy more humane

Reactive Robotics is the first company worldwide to systematically address Very Early Mobilization – VEM – to the critical care unit – with an intelligent, robotic system.

Our solution – the VEMO® system – complements manual therapy
with an adaptive robotic system and supports nurses and therapists in their daily duties.

Nurses and therapists are enabled to fully focus on therapy while being relieved from the physically demanding work of mobilizing the patient. One person can single-handed perform therapy with the patient and speed up the patient´s recovery. In a ward, the available number of care givers can help more patients at a higher frequency of VEM therapy.

We bring VEM Therapy to the patient
– not the patient to the therapy.
Safe and effective for patients and nurses!



Scientific studies show: 
Critical care patients receiving VEM therapy recover faster than patients who do not receive this Very Early Mobilization therapy.

  • Fewer secondary complications caused by immobility
  • Higher vigilance after therapy
  • Less nursing attention required per patient
