The Core-Tex is an entirely new environment to enhance human movement. Its patented ability to simultaneously tilt, translation, and rotate at 360° freely can be applied to all stages of the rehab and pre/post rehab continuum.
Use the Core-Tex in combination with manual treatment and independently for optimizing function.
As a tool for rehabilitation and injury prevention, the Core-Tex provides the combined benefits of multiple pieces of equipment. It can be used to:
● Facilitate joint mobility and stability
● Challenge the patient's balance mechanisms in multiple ways
● Provide an environment for a variety of strengthening exercises challenging the body in novel ways.
The Core-Tex assists the therapist in creating motions in the body that cannot be produced on any other piece of equipment. Integrating head movement, arm reaches, and weight shifts into the drills enables the clinician to design activities specific to the patient’s needs.
The patented Core-Tex is designed to stimulate a high level of neurological engagement and myofascial recruitment in order to provide users a more robust, integrated and variable experience.
The 30" diameter platform is large enough to accommodate various user positions that include standing, sitting, kneeling, quadruped (plus hands-on-floor option), supine or combined with a ground based limb.
The entire unit can easily be placed on a treatment table for shoulder girdle and upper extremity treatment options The integrated handrail provides the needed support for novice, rehabilitating or senior users as well as providing external stability for single-leg and advanced movements. The handrail also creates a fixed anchor to influence the thoracic spine and shoulder girdle when creating motion from the bottom up.
