Exercise is the central feature in the rehabilitative treatment of hemiplegic patients. In cognitive rehabilitation, great importance is attributed to the recovery of a sufficient number of proprioceptive channels before expecting the patient to regain voluntary control. The PERM [Piattaforma (Platform), Elettropneumatica (Electropneumatic) per (for) Riabilitazione (Rehabilitation) Motoria (Motor)] is a new device that can be used in the treatment of the lower limbs to provide the patient with controlled and quantifiable mechanical stimuli, thus enabling the therapist to adopt a more rigorous approach to treatment even in the very early stages of rehabilitation. Alternatively, the system can be used in a different operating mode as a normal biofeedback system capable of displaying on-screen the extent to which voluntary load has been transferred to the lower limb
