/PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Reha-Stim Medtec, Inc., a physical rehabilitation technology leader, announces the introduction of the FLOAT to the US market. The FLOAT is the world's first 3-Dimensional overhead Body Weight Support System and can off-set a patient's body weight by up to 200 lbs. The FLOAT allows patients who are unable to support their own body weight to safely practice and improve gait, general mobility, balance and other activities of daily living. Reha-Stim is the first company to provide this technology for use in a 3-Dimensional environment. The FLOAT allows the patient to move freely about the therapy area allowing for movements forward, back, left, right and up and down and in any combination. The FLOAT does not limit patient movement to two dimensions only, as other overhead body weight support systems currently do.
Multi-directional walking, including spontaneous planned or unplanned changes of direction, requires increased neuromuscular coordination and postural control that helps improve mobility and dynamic stability in patients who have suffered from Stroke, Spinal Code Injury, Brain Trauma or other neurological impairments. By allowing patients to move in a 3-D environment during therapy, patients can safely experience the same activities they will face when discharged to the home and community. "This type of Real-World mobility therapy helps patients reach their highest level of independence and quality of life possible" said Don Gronachan
, VP of Reha-Stim Medtec, North America
In addition to the unique 3-D movement capabilities, the FLOAT also helps reduce patient and therapist injuries by preventing falls and eliminating the need for therapists to physically engage the patient in an attempt to prevent a fall from occurring.
