Halo removed from Hockey Player

MINNEAPOLIS – Jack Jablonski, an injured Benilde-St. Margaret’s hockey player,  has reached another important step in his recovery as he undergoes rehabilitation for a spinal cord injury. A nine pound piece of equipment dubbed “the Halo” supported Jablonski’s head, neck and upper body after he suffered his paralyzing injury during a  varsity game in December. It was now being removed. The family said Jablonski was thrilled to move his head and “see the world from a more normal view.” Work will now begin to strengthen his upper body.

 The ARMTUTOR was developed to improve movement of upper extremity  limbs and joints after spinal cord injuries. The system consists of an ergonomic wearable arm brace and dedicated rehabilitation software. The ARMTUTOR rehabilitation concept is based on performing controlled exercise rehabilitation practice at a patient customized level with real time accurate feedback on the patient’s performance. So early in recovery  the occupational or physical therapists will work on improving range of motion, accuracy and speed of movements as well as muscle strength. The exercises are designed in the form of challenging games that are suitable for a wide variety of neurological and orthopedic injuries and disease.
Currently the ARMTUTOR is being used in leading U.S. hospitals and clinics together with its sister devices  the HANDTUTOR, LEGTUTOR, 3DTUTOR. They are certified by the FDA and CE and are available for children as well as adults. See W.W.W.HANDTUTOR.COM for more information.
