Vasa Trainer – a Versatile Tool for Physical Therapy, Rehabilitation, and Sports Conditioning
Physical Therapist Jim Harrison discusses the benefits of using the Vasa Trainer as a total fitness gym in rehabilitation for patients who require exercises that impart low compressive forces on joints, and reduced loads. While aquatic or pool therapy can accomplish that, it is not available in most clinics. The Vasa Trainer is ideal for patients in acute phases or who are post-operative and can benefit from reduced weight-bearing through the lower extremities. The Vasa Trainer allows for a limited, controlled loading during functional exercises like walking and flexion and extension. It’s also important to offer equipment and programs that are fun and get results for patients — and the Vasa Trainer does.
