New Innovations for Spinal Cord Injury Patient Rehabilitation

It’s not a secret that for people with spinal cord injury the recovery process is difficult and long. Therefore there are all kinds of fresh approaches to assist these patients in their recovery and to make it easier for them.

One of these innovations is The First Steps Wellness Centre of Edmonton,Canada that just began its operations a little over a year ago. It is a rehabilitation gym that specializes in treating people with spinal cord injuries. In this short time over 30 clients are receiving this specialized treatment. The method at the center is to combine physiotherapy with a gym workout thereby improving muscle function. Their success is measured by the fact that their ”graduates” have more of a chance of walking again.

Another recent innovation is the TUTOR system. The HANDTUTOR, ARMTUTOR, LEGTUTOR and 3DTUTOR are physical therapy products that have been designed to administer intensive exercises to the spinal cord injury patient by having him move his affected limb through a series of challenging games. These are part of powerful and exclusive software that gives the therapist objective and quantitative information on the patient’s impairment. The information is then recorded and documented thereby allowing the occupational and physiotherapist to customize the treatment session to the patient’s specific needs. The TUTORs are extensively used as well for physical therapy solutions to Parkinson’s disease, brain injury, stroke, CP, MS, and other upper and lower limb disabilities or surgeries.

The TUTOR system is fully certified by the FDA and CE, is available for adults as well as children and can be used at the patient’s home through rehabilitation. See WWW.MEDITOUCH.CO.IL for more information.
