Davidson Therapy Products Demonstrates a Better Shoulder Recovery Solution with SLINGPROM at APTA Private Practice Meeting
BONNEY LAKE, Wash., Oct. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Davidson Therapy Products, LLC is excited to demonstrate the SLINGPROM® at the Annual APTA Private Practice Section meeting in Las Vegas, NV, October 24 to 27th.
The SLINGPROM® is a patented shoulder pulley system that is a new take on the traditional shoulder pulley. It provides a more comfortable way to perform Passive Range of Motion (PROM) shoulder exercises and joint mobilizations that can’t be performed with a traditional shoulder pulley.
According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, close to 2 million people in the United States went to their doctors because of a rotator cuff problem in 2008. Up to 50% of this population will require surgical intervention to restore function to their shoulders. In addition, it is estimated that 3 to 5 percent of the US population suffer from adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder) annually.
The SLINGPROM® is a simple, inexpensive device enables comfortable Passive Range of Motion (PROM) to be performed in the clinic and by the patient in their home. Previously, in order to receive (PROM) at home, one would have to rent a machine for hundreds of dollars per week or have a physical therapist come to the home.
What physical therapists are saying:
“Finally a quality range of motion pulley system for our shoulder rehab clients that actually promotes passive range of motion, vs. Active assistive, simple set up, patient friendly, and incredibly effective!”
