  • CPM therapy session with ARTROMOT;

  • Kinesiological session in a closed cycle with OrbiTrack;

  • Exercise therapy

  • Kinesiotherapy with S-E-T

  • Session for active and passive rehabilitation of the lower and the upper limbs (THERA-Vital)

  • Session for active and passive rehabilitation of the lower and the upper limbs (MOTOmed )
