When conventional rehabilitation is too slow, Motus is the answer for stroke recovery: a home based program revolutionizing stroke rehabilitation whether you are ten days or ten years after brain injury.
Hemiparesis from stroke is not your life. This is technology to get you back to the real you. Prove them wrong–those that say you can’t get any better. Motus users say they’ve made more gains in weeks or months than they have in years of traditional rehab.
“Because the therapy is done at home…it keeps her from having to drive him to appointments”
Clinical studies (Lang, et al. 2015, Lohse, et al. 2014) showcase that higher doses of therapy can result in faster functional gains.
Stroke and brain injury survivors are getting a fraction of the hours of rehabilitation from the healthcare system.
The Motus Hand & Foot robots provide rehab that has been scientifically proven to be of equivalent quality to a skilled clinician. More importantly there is no cap on the number of hours of therapy. You set the limit for how much therapy you receive. Boost your rehab hours by 10x!
Designed to speed up stroke recovery by increasing the number of repetitions in a rehab session, clinical studies proved Motus robots can deliver clinical level of care.
“I can honestly say that the hand mentor has helped significantly in managing and reducing the tone in my wrist and hand. And not to mention increased range of motion and wrist function since starting with the device!”
“On June 29th I had a stroke. I had very limited movement in my right arm and almost none in hand. About a month ago I went on the internet looking for ideas and came across this web site and with the 25 hour challenge I said what do I have to lose. Within just a few days…”
“…His stroke left his right arm with having hardly any movement. Even manually moving it to bath caused pain. After the first days therapy there was less pain sometimes none. Therapist is very happy with his improvement…
“My son was 2.5 years post stroke when he started using the hand mentor. Don’t give up. The science of neuro plasticity is real. Your brain can change and get better at any age, anytime.”
“My shoulder had movements but it took me more effort to lift my arm above my shoulder and i had some pain too, now it is easier to raise my arm and minimum pain, the hand mentor definitely helped.”
“Before, when I tried moving my hand down at the wrist, it froze solid. Could not do it but I’m starting to see improvements on that!!”
“Terrell Harris completed the #25hourchallenge (two weeks after we received the unit). The hand mentor has helped reduce spasticity in his arm and has helped him extend his wrist (passive).”
“I am grateful for the positive energy this community brings to the process of getting my groove back. It has been a big challenge for me to sit and pay attention for an entire session. I am psyched to be working with technology on rewiring my movement.”
“My sister Sharon M….she’s able to move her hand with ease. Her left side has seen improvement in range of movements and reduced spasticity. #30daychallenge getting stronger everyday”
“…My dad had no movement on his right side. He is now moving his right thumb and first fingers pretty good along with now trying to move his pinky finger a little… he really looks forward to his hand mentor sessions!”
“My husband, Ed, received his Motus Nova hand mentor late yesterday afternoon. We were so excited! We set it up and he started the 30 day challenge!! He did a session last night and one this morning.”
“Finished the 11th day… I even put the device on my hand without needing Pete’s help to straighten my fingers. Marie observed the muscles in my forearm looked less atrophied and I could show her that it was easier to straighten my fingers.”
“Leaning to make sure his wrist is going down far enough to pick up the card. The up and down motions are really making him stronger, especially since the settings were changed to get more range❤”
Fixed and Variable Rate (FAVR) Reimbursement
With a FAVR reimbursement, employers reimburse employees for the fixed and variable expenses of driving a personal vehicle for business reasons. Companies using FAVR reimbursement can ensure employees are reimbursed fairly and accurately based on costs specific to their area of operation.
How much should I be reimbursed for mileage?
How much anyone should be reimbursed for mileage depends on a number of factors. It’s not as simple as every delivery driver being reimbursed the same amount. Having the same occupation doesn’t mean you should be reimbursed the same. So what are the factors that contribute to an accurate reimbursement?
Ultimately, employees that drive greater distances spend more money on fuel and maintenance. The more time you send on the road, the more fuel you need, the more frequently your vehicle will require maintenance. Unfortunately, some vehicle programs don’t account for this. Let’s look at a hypothetical.
Employers give a driver who puts 2,000 miles on their personal vehicle a $575 stipend. But they also provide a driver who puts 500 miles on their personal vehicle the same stipend. The driver with less miles to drive might benefit from the stipend. The driver putting four times as many miles on their vehicle will be paying for their business mileage out of pocket. Receiving such a small payment that clearly isn’t providing them enough for the many miles they drive will incentive an employee to drive less.
Driving has different expenses depending on where an employee is located. That could be states away, or even a different part of the same state. This means employees receiving stipends are almost certainly not being reimbursed enough for their driving, especially if the program is national or a large region. The same can be said for a mileage reimbursement.
Consider employees driving in California, where gas is typically more expensive. If they receive reimbursements at the same cents-per-mile rate as an employee in Mississippi, where gasoline prices are generally lower than the national average, that’s neither fair or accurate. Employees who drive around 500 miles each month and receive a mileage reimbursement will generally receive a decent reimbursement. But mileage reimbursements rarely cover the broader costs of owning and operating a vehicle.
While the cost of fuel is what most people think about when talking mileage reimbursements, there’s more to owning and operating your personal vehicle for business reasons. Fixed costs include insurance payments and license and registration fees. These numbers are generally stable and don’t see much change month over month. Variable costs include fuel, maintenance, tires, etc. These costs are more likely to fluctuate. Additionally, these costs are different depending on the area employees live and drive. Reimbursements that aren’t taking these costs into account lack the fairness and accuracy of a fixed and variable rate reimbursement.
How much should my employer pay me in 2020?
The IRS sets a standard mileage reimbursement rate. For 2020, the federal mileage rate is $0.575 per mile. Reimbursements based on federal mileage allowance are not considered income and therefore are not taxable for your employees. Businesses can deduct these costs from business tax.
