Inpatient or Outpatient Physical Therapy?

Recent surveys show that most of the physical rehabilitation for spinal cord injury patients occurs after discharge from inpatient programs. The significance of this data is that the high costs of inpatient programs are reduced and rehabilitative work can be conducted successfully after discharge.
Significant to that success is the type of physical therapy solution that is applied to the rehab program. Using one of the latest systems will be crucial to the success of the patient in his rehabilitation. The HANDTUTOR, ARMTUTOR, LEGTUTOR and 3DTUTOR are one of the most cost effective physical therapy products available today. They consist of ergonomic gloves or braces attached to the affected limb of the patient and then to  exclusive software where the patient uses his own power to accomplish tasks outlined in a series of games. These games offer the patient intensive exercises which if repeated often enough will allow him to improve the mobility of the affected limb. The TUTOR system was designed to function in the same way for patients with spinal cord or brain injury, Parkinson’s disease, stroke, MS, CP and  upper or lower limb surgeries.
The TUTOR system has been successful in leading U.S. and European rehabilitation facilities and clinics and can also be used in the patient’s home through the use of tele rehabilitation. In this method physical and occupational therapists record the progress made by the patient and customize a specific program to the patient’s ability.
The TUTORs are fully certified by the FDA and CE. See WWW.MEDITOUCH.CO.IL for more information.
