Rebound / Bed Rehabilitation System


Rebound is a ‘Bed Exercise Unit’ that prevents muscle wasting suffered by hospitalized patients. It utilizes elastic bands to create a versatile exercise system that can strengthen multiple muscle groups. Leveraging on the structure of the hospital bed, Rebound is a low cost, extremely portable and easy to use exercise unit.

An in-built digital counter paired with a mobile application records patients’ rehabilitation progress. Rebound provides a target-oriented exercise regime to engage and motivate patients, while also streamlining the manual logging process of patients’ records for physiotherapists, easing their professional workload.
