Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS)
EMS is the elicitation of muscle contraction using electric impulses.
- Strength training tool for healthy subjects and athletes
- Rehabilitation and preventive tool for people who are partially or totally immobilized
- Testing tool for evaluating the neural and/or muscular function in vivo
- Post-exercise recovery tool for athletes
The Traction Table is adjusted so that the patient assumes a position that aligns their spine and allows them to lie straight down on the surface without any pressure points being exerted on the spine.
- Permits gradulal adjustments allowing for patient’s comfort level
- Fits patients of all shapes and sizes
- Increased patients range of motions and spinal flexability
- Reduce muscle spasms and relaxes muscles
- Boosts circulation and lymphatic drainage
Physical exercises are generally grouped into three types, depending on the overall effect they have on the human body.
- Aerobic exercise is any physical activity that uses large muscle groups and causes the body to use more oxygen than it would while resting.
- Anaerobic exercise, which includes strength and resistance training, can firm, strengthen, and increase muscle mass, as well as improve bone density, balance, and coordination.
- Flexibility exercises stretch and lengthen muscles.
Activities of Daily Living (ADLs)
ADLs are categorized into basic, self-care tasks acquired starting from infancy, and instrumental, tasks learned throughout adolescence A person who cannot perform essential ADLs may have poorer quality of life or be unsafe in their current living conditions; therefore, they may require the help of other individuals and/or mechanical devices.
Activities of daily living are activities related to personal care. They include bathing or showering, dressing, getting in and out of bed or a chair, walking, using the toilet, eating, sitting in a car, sitting at a desk, and lifting.
