Balance and Co-ordination Training : A vital element of rehabilitation program. The MTD trainer has a platform that can measure and train balance, symmetry, speediness, strength, capacity as well as coordination. It consists of number of computerized tasking, which enhances the perception, cognition and anticipation. The exercises on MTD can be tailored for patients as per the body weight and requirement. The training by MTD trainer is supported by visual and audible feedback.
On MTD, balance can be trained while performing various activities in different body positions such as sitting, squatting, one leg standing, toe standing, forward bending, backward bending, jumping, etc.
Weight supported Harness system: It is used for patients with poor trunk control to help them walk safely without falling. Stroke patients can be ambulated on treadmill using the harness system.
Tilt table: It is used for postural orientation and standing with support in paralyzed patients.
Various spine related problems like Spondylosis, which cause neck and back pain, disc problems and postural disorders, are treated using advanced manual therapy and joint mobilization techniques on highly specialized manual therapy table.
It plays a vital role in multi-disciplinary management of sports injuries. We aim to treat and fully rehabilitate an athlete after his injury or surgery and regain his ability to participate in sports in shortest possible time. Most advanced exercise equipments that help improve strength, stamina, endurance, flexibility, balance stability, proprioception, speed and agility are used.
ISOKINETIC System of Strengthening: ISOKINETIC multi-joint and work simulator are computer aided biomechanical testing, training and rehabilitation equipments. Individualized exercise regimes are designed for effective rehabilitation. It has Biofeedback system, where patients can follow their training displayed on screen in real time. It enables the patients to perform movement realistically at desired target speed with minimum force. Performance can be displayed and recorded for evaluation and progress chart.
HUR training stations are based on pneumatic air resistance technology system. They help build functional fitness by increasing and maintaining flexibility, strengthening and toning of muscle, increasing static and dynamic endurance. They have step-less (smooth) adjustment of resistance, which avoids overloading of joints and connected tissues thus making it more safer and effective training system.
