Chattanooga Group’s Intelect(R) TranSport Combo Wins “Best in Show” at National Athletic Trainers Association Show
Chattanooga Group, one of the world's largest manufacturers of physical rehabilitation equipment and a DJO company, was recently awarded "Best in Show" by the National Athletic Trainers Association (NATA) for their Intelect TranSport Combo. Each year, members of the NATA vote for the best products shown at their Annual Meeting. At this year's meeting in St. Louis, Chattanooga Group's Intelect TranSport Combo, a transportable device that delivers both electrotherapy and ultrasound, was voted tops in the Electrotherapy category.
"We're very excited to receive this distinction," said Jeff Gephart, National Sales Manager for Chattanooga Group. "The Intelect TranSport is one of our most innovative and popular products because it was designed with the athletic trainer in mind. This tool gives them the ability to deliver a broader range of therapies from a single unit -- both on the field and in the athletic training room."
The benefits of electrotherapy and ultrasound include: pain relief, muscle relaxation, muscle activation, soft tissue injuries and muscle re-education.
Winners of the NATA Best in Show contest will have their product listed on NATA's website for a year as well as receive additional mentions in the NATA news publications.
