THERAPY THROUGH EXERCISE: THE 4D PRO® SLING TRAINER
The story of the 4D PRO® sling trainer actually began with an injured professional athlete who, with the help of this tool, advanced from status “immobilized, no weight on injury” to winning the title of world champion and setting a new world record. Her name: Anastasia Zueva.
. In other words, her physician, Dr. Dr. Homayun Gharavi, developed the 4D PRO® sling trainer with the objective of providing targeted, perfect therapy. His interpretation of the term therapy was that it has to make it possible to facilitate the development of performance no matter what the restriction and to maintain this ability.
DEVELOPED WITH AN EYE TO MEDICAL CONSIDERATIONSAs an intelligent therapeutic tool, the 4D PRO® sling trainer meets the highest demands of patients when it comes to therapeutic work in many areas. Wide neoprene loops distribute the pressure across a large area, which makes exercising more comfortable. To that end, the intelligent loop design also provides complete relief to the highly sensitive joints of the hands and feet as well as the ankles. The optional integration of the handles which come with the set will also not cause any stress to the wrists. Safety sleeves as well as periodic quality and stress tests guarantee maximum safety. Obviously, in order to ensure stellar hygiene, all modules of the tool can be wiped clean and the neoprene loops are washable.
MODULAR TECHNOLOGY ENSURES GREATER VERSATILITYThe 4D PRO® sling trainer provides therapists with four therapy tools in one. The generous supply of accessories included with the sling trainer makes it possible to convert it into a variety of tools and offers creative physical therapists lots of leeway to implement their own ideas.
MEET ALL DOCTOR’S INSTRUCTIONS USING A SINGLE DEVICELet’s be honest: In most cases, physical therapy sessions are carried out in compliance with the patient’s doctor’s instructions for liability reasons, not because they always make sense. But there’s good news. Doctor’s orders such as “BW and strengthening of the joint controlling muscles under partial application of weight” or “improve mobility up to a maximum of 0/0/20°” give good therapists lots of leeway to make full use of their intelligence and intuition in progressive therapy. The development goals are countered by the restrictive orders for mobilization and weight bearing, which doesn’t just sound schizophrenic, but is ultimately also harmful to the patient. Hence, the 4D PRO® sling trainer provides committed therapists with a tool that eliminates this conflict by respecting the restrictions imposed by the physicians and accommodating the demands of the injured body at the same time.
