Transitioning physical therapy patients to personal training clients.
There has been an overwhelming need for Physical Therapy patients to continue their regimen once they are discharged. Unfortunately, there have not been enough measures taken to ensure this occurs. We have launched a nationwide program to assist PT patients once they leave their facility. Transitional planning will help maximize functional gains and enhance the patients overall experience and results.
Most linear cross trainers are in the price range of $4000-$5000 making it unrealistic for patients to purchase for home use. Often patients will end up searching for a used linear trainer with excessive wear and tear, and reluctantly overpay for used equipment with no warranty. We have resources across the U.S. that allow us to provide pre owned equipment for thousands less then what a patient or clinic would pay for brand new. Our equipment has been inspected, parts showing wear are replaced and warranties are included. We also offer wholesale pricing for other manufacturers and we offer free shipping anywhere in the 48 contiguous states.

Bridging the gap between rehabilitation and wellness
There has been an overwhelming need for Physical Therapy patients to continue working on their recovery once they have been discharged. Physical therapy can be physically demanding on PT patients, especially those patients who are unconditioned. Most PT patients are motivated to recover from their injury or ailment, but what happens are the appointments are no longer scheduled and the patients is left to rely on their own for their post-rehab exercise regimens. Adherence to a structured post-rehab exercise schedule can significantly reduce the overall time of the rehabilitation process. Transitional planning for PT patients will help maximize functional gains and enhance the patients overall experience and results.
