NeuroGym’s movement-enabling equipment and techniques allow the recovering individual to develop and practice the movements they otherwise cannot perform alone

Effectiveness of NeuroGym FIT’s techniques and equipment have been proven through clinical trials and studies. Examples:

  • The Journal of Neurologic Physical Therapy (Dec 2011) published a case study on some impressive results using the NeuroGym Sit-to-Stand (STS) Trainer. This case study from the Department of Rehabilitation Sciences at the University of Cincinnati used the Sit-to-Stand Trainer to improve the sit-to-stand ability of stroke patients and illustrated, as well, the potential positive transfer to gait abilities.
    (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22052132)
  •  The journal Aging Clinical and Experimental Research published a study about the positive effects in older adults of balance training with the NeuroGym Trainer. Seniors improved both stability and automaticity while stabilizing – key elements in falls prevention.
    (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20009499)

Data from NeuroGym FIT trials in residential care showing increasing repetitions of sit to stand exercise (STS) and decreasing time to complete the 3x and 5x timed sit to stand test.
