5 New Active Care Products from Thera-Band® Promote Home Exercise Programs
Akron, Ohio (April 6, 2009) – Patient empowerment, motivation, and active participation in home exercise programs that complement in-clinic care are all critical topics for today’s healthcare providers. They promote better outcomes and a transition to a healthier lifestyle after recovery. For the practitioner this translates to improved patient relationships and results, increased referrals and stronger compliance with accepted standards of care.
The Hygenic Corporation / Performance Health Inc. is excited to announce the introduction of 5 new Thera-Band products that give healthcare providers new home exercise program options to build / expand their practice. Each new product carries the trusted Thera-Band name and reflects the high quality the brand stands for. Packaged for consumer resale, all of these products are designed to build practice revenues by dispensing products for use at home. Four of these products come with comprehensive illustrated exercise instructions for improved ease of use by patients. Additionally, many of these products can be used in-clinic and at-home, simplifying practitioner implementation.
Thera-Band Foot Roller
Made of supple natural rubber, the new Thera-Band Foot Roller is an ideal tool for patients who are seeking an affordable, simple and effective way to relieve foot pain caused by common conditions such as plantar fasciitis and over-activity. Using the exercises illustrated right on the box, patients with plantar fasciitis can use the roller as a device to stretch the plantar fascia and increase flexibility. Those experiencing soreness from tired feet will find the massaging benefits of the roller pleasant and therapeutic. In all applications, the Foot Roller can be chilled or frozen to help reduce inflammation.
