low back pain

Often called the disease of the century, low back pain is the leading cause of disability in the world, affecting about 80 percent of people at some point in their life. Among them 1 out of 10 suffers from chronic and acute pain.

These patients are often trapped in a vicious circle. Because of the pain, they limit their movements which causes muscles atrophy and intense pain, affecting their daily activities and impacting their quality of life.

That is why rehabilitation is very important to strengthen the abdominal, paraspinal, pelvic musculature and relieve the pain.


Atlas solution is composed of : the first ATLAS exoskeleton, which relieves back pain and assists physical activity, and DUNAMIS, a playful interface combining a serious game and a biofeedback mode.

vertebral traction relief

Through an ambulatory vertebral traction created by 4 micro-motors, the Atlas device provides immediate pain relief by decreasing nerve root compression. Once the kinesiophobia pain circle is broken, patients gradually resume movements essential for rehabilitation.

30 - 45 min

For a daily training session in hospital, rehabilitation facilities, physiotherapy practices and health centres, controlled by a trained professional.

Its use as part of a functional rehabilitation program is recommended for deconditioned patients with hyperalgic phase and/or chronic pain.

complete mobility rehabilitation

Atlas integrates embedded sensors which allow mobility in all anatomical planes.

As a result, the device adapts to every patient’s movements, fostering a functional therapy to accelerate recovery. Patients progressively gain confidence in doing daily activities and improves their quality of life.

‘‘The Atlas device reproduces the relief that patients have in the lying position thanks to the application of a vertical pulling force.‘‘
Dr Fahed ZAIRI, Chief Scientific Officer – Neurosurgeon, Ramsay GDS
‘‘There is a real potential in the use of the Atlas device, whether it is for rehabilitation with a physiotherapist or at home.‘‘

Interfaced with Atlas, Dunamis is the serious game which interacts with the exoskeleton to make rehabilitation an entertaining activity. The gaming experience enhances the rehabilitation exercises thereby motivating patients and improving their recovery.

individualised progressive programs

Various exercises are integrated in the serious game. In the purpose of providing a progressive training programme and meeting the unique needs of patients, the therapist customises the type of movements and therapeutic objectives of each rehabilitation session.

analysis session report

The interface analyses the results of the exercises done, gives a performance assessment to quantify the progress of the patient and improves observance throughout the treatment.

There is also a biofeedback mode which enables a direct interaction between the patient and the therapist and provides real-time information on movements, forces and angles reached by the patient.
