Equistasi® proposes treatment for both adults and children with problems of movement functions and of tone caused by injury to the central nervous system.
The treatment with Equistasi® is meant to be an interrelation between the therapist and the patient, this relationship leads to an improvement of its function.
Equistasi® allows the therapist to intervene on very serious neurological pathologies. The medical device is able to strengthen residual capacity of the patient, acting on motor control and on the alterations of muscular tone. The object of the treatment is to optimize the improving postural control.
In the Rehabilitative Hospital of the City of Venice, Dr. Daniele Volpe has recently finished a scientific protocol on the effects of vibration (FV) of the Equistasi® device on Parkinson’s disease patients with equilibrium problems.
The Study has generated such unexpected results that they were defined exceptional even by the same experimenters.
The Study has generated such unexpected results that they were defined exceptional even by the same experimenters. From the Romberg test and through the help of the stabilometric platform an increase in the proprioceptive capacity has been observed and a relevant decrease in the number of falls in the patient during the Equistasi® rehabilitative therapy.
Following this is presented the Study abstract:
“The effect of focal mechanical vibrations with a wearable device (Equistasi) on rehabilitation of postural instability in Parkinson’s disease” è stato inviato al comitato scientifico del “The International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society (MDS)” per poter essere discusso al 18° International Congress of Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders di Stoccolma a giugno 2014.
