Akron, Ohio – February 10, 20009 – The Hygenic Corporation / Performance Health, Inc. announces Thera-Band Rehab Kits. These turn-key kits represent the first Active Care Program packaged to include both Thera-Band Systems of Progressive Exercise and Biofreeze pain relieving products. Each kit also includes an Active Care Guide complete with patient education and therapeutic exercises and a companion instructional DVD, allowing healthcare providers to instantly incorporate these professionally-designed home exercise programs as a complement to their in-clinic care.
A new clinical study published in the February issue of Arthritis Care & Research concludes that “exercise is being underutilized as a treatment for chronic back and neck pain” although current practice guidelines promote exercise for these conditions. Exercise is also commonly used to facilitate improved outcomes in individuals undergoing rehab for other injury areas. With Thera-band Rehab Kits, prescribing home exercise is simple and effective. Everything the patient needs to address pain and perform the exercises is included in the kit. The practitioner simply selects the appropriate kit and exercises to create a doctor-guided home exercise program, and then monitors patient progress during clinic visits. Dispensing Thera-Band Rehab Kits in the clinic provides much needed convenience for injured patients and encourages critical compliance for a fuller recovery. Providers can feel confident offering these kits for sale to their patients as high-quality professional products that integrate healthcare provider exercise direction.
Each Rehab Kit focuses on a specific body part / injury area and contains everything a patient needs to enhance in-clinic rehabilitation with an effective, focused home exercise program. The accompanying DVD provides guidance so that exercises can be performed properly and confidently. Individual kits are available for: Shoulder, Knee & Hip, Lower Back, Neck/Cervical, and Hand & Wrist.
