New Physiotherapy Technology: Safe Gait USA: Physiotherapy Makes a Man & a Women Walk who were told that they can never walk

New Physiotherapy Technology: Safe Gait USA: Physiotherapy Makes a Man & a Women Walk who were told that they can never walk:

Case 1: When Mark Landers was told he'd never walk again, he looked for a way to beat the odds.  Then, he was asked to test out a new medical technology called Safe Gait, and suddenly, the impossible was within his reach.

Mark left the hospital three months after a day that would change his life forever.

"They say I was rubbing my chest, and rubbing my leg, and I didn't know.  They thought I was having a heart attack, because I was in perfect health," he said.

It was a tear in his heart valve called an aortic dissection.  All of his right leg, and part of his hip had to be amputated.  He was told he'd never walk again.

"The nerves had died, they just didn't think it was a possibility," said Mark's wife Michelle. ...or so they thought.

"Mentally, your brain needs to tell you to take that first step in order to walk again," Mark said.

However, the body needs a boost. and Mark is getting it from new technology created right in our backyard called Safe Gait.  Mark was one of the first to use it here at Nazareth College.

"Using the system, we were able to do things we'd never done before, like get rid of both crutches, barely holding on to my hands," said Dr. J.J. Mowder-Tinney of Nazareth College.

It's a ceiling mounted race track, which attaches to a body harness to hold Mark up.  It lets him move 360 degrees, and therapists can adjust the level of support.

"I didn't have to worry about crushing the PT, and falling and hurting myself, and going back into the hospital," Mark said.

This breakthrough didn't come from a medical research lab.  It came from Gorbel Inc., a local company that makes industrial cranes.  One employee's daughter suffered a brain injury, and believed the same technology they make to lift heavy equipment could be used to lift people in therapy.

"That so aligns with what we can do from a technology standpoint.  That even better aligns with how we can improve people's lives," said Brian Reh, President & CEO of Gorbel Inc.

It has for Mark. "To come as far as he's come is nothing short of a miracle," Michelle said.

Now Mark's eyes are on the next big goal - a first dance at his daughter's August wedding - and maybe even one more miracle...

"My goal is to be able to walk down, walk her down the aisle, and hand her to her new husband," he said.

Case 2: At 59, Beth Ruckert is learning to walk again: Illness and injury have weakened or destroyed considerable function in her legs, and the Perinton resident is working to retrain muscles that still respond.

Secure in a harness that was attached to an overhead rail and guided by a computer program sensitive to her every movement, Ruckert leaned less heavily on her walker as she stepped deliberately through a lap around a physical therapy clinic at Nazareth College.

“It feels good to be on my feet,” said Ruckert, who uses a wheelchair to get around. “Having the support of the device was really great.”

Ruckert is among the first people to use SafeGait 360° Balance & Mobility Trainer, a bodyweight support system from Gorbel Medical, a division of Gorbel Inc., the Fishers, Ontario County, company known for its overhead cranes.
The idea came from an employee, whose daughter had been in an accident and went through painful gait and balance rehabilitation. The employee suggested a way to adapt the company’s lifting technology to prevent falls among people going through physical rehab. Through another connection, Gorbel started working with Nazareth.

SafeGait was more than two years in development and installed in November for Nazareth’s pro-bono neuromuscular physical therapy clinic. The system hits prime time next week when Gorbel Medical displays SafeGait at a meeting of the American Physical Therapy Association in Indianapolis.

More than 10,000 physical therapists attend the event, according to the association web site. While Gorbel Medical cannot take orders during the convention, the company has a goal of selling 30 of the devices by the end of the year, according to medical division general manager Betty Dolce.

The device costs $160,000. Already two have been ordered: Strong Memorial Hospital and Monroe Community Hospital are expected to install SafeGait within the next couple of months. The system was developed with input from Nazareth College, the University of Rochester Medical Center, MCH and Ohio State University.

“We’re pretty excited about the concept and the technology,” said Dr. Bradford Berk, the former chief executive officer of the University of Rochester Medical Center who left that post to start the Rochester Neurorestorative Institute at the Medical Center.

“This kind of device and technology is really what’s going to revolutionize rehabilitation for patients with neurological problems,” said Berk, who met with Gorbel executives while SafeGait was in development. “What they’ve done is create the very beginning of a device that’s all about new approaches to understanding gait and locomotion.”

Berk, who sustained a spinal cord injury in a 2009 bicycling accident, said he has not used SafeGait. “Once we get it here, for sure I’m going to go ahead and hook myself up.”

SafeGait has to be registered with the Food and Drug Administration, but the federal agency does not have to approve its use, Dolce said.
Gorbel promotes SafeGait as a safe way for people recovering from stroke or traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injuries, neurological disorders or amputations to regain mobility. The harness wraps around each of the user’s upper thighs and the torso. Seatbelt-style straps attach that harness to what looks like a coat-hanger, which in turn is attached to an overhead device called an actuator.

Other bodyweight support systems are available. One made by Los Angeles company has been in use for several months at the Golisano Restorative Neurology & Rehabilitation Center at Rochester Regional Health System’s Unity Hospital.

Dolce said what separates SafeGait from the other systems is software that automatically adjusts to downward movement. The program knows when the person wants to sit and when the person is falling, and it adjusts tension on the strap attached to the actuator until the person is steady. Once under control, the person can continue.

The software tracks the person’s progress in a session and over time, making it easier for the physical therapist to document progress when seeking continued coverage from health insurers, Dolce said. It also allows for customized treatment plans.

Additionally, the software factors in the user’s height and weight, and it can provide support for 50 percent of that weight to make movement more or less challenging. Those specifications are communicated with the actuator as the person walks, steps up and down, sits and stands.

SafeGait also reduces the risk of injury to physical therapists, who otherwise would have to steady or catch a person about to fall. The apparatus means a therapist can work one-on-one with the individual, rather than having additional therapists in case the person faltered.

J.J. Mowder-Tinney, associate professor of physical therapy in charge of the adult neuromuscular course, said the apparatus boosts confidence. She has seen individuals afraid to stand up and take a few steps, but “put them in a system like this and now they can do it.”

As Mowder-Tinney put Ruckert through her paces Thursday for the first time in the SafeGait, she noticed the woman putting more weight on her legs, rather than using her arms to move her walker.

At one point, Ruckert was using her left leg to push away an object.
“She was cheating all over the place,” Mowder-Tinney said. “In this system, she’s starting to use the leg muscles she hasn’t been using.” Mowder-Tinney said the apparatus allows clients to work harder, do more repetitions and see quicker results.

Ruckert had trouble describing the feeling of being supported in the harness as she walked. She had better luck explaining the results.

“My mobility already is better,” she said. “I’m still flabbergasted. … There’s increased confidence when you see how much you can improve. The body does relearn. It gives me more confidence I will be able to be more mobile.”

Anything's possible!

Safe Gait has been tested at Nazareth College, Monroe Community Hospital, the University of Rochester Medical Center and other local hospitals.  It makes its national debut next week.-Update by Physiotherapy Jobs Portal.

A Video Game for Physical Therapy

A Video Game for Physical Therapy:

Repeating mind-numbing Physical therapy so you can use your hands can really suck. To try to regain use of your arm, you must painstakingly practice exercises that are dull enough to anesthetize Grumpy Cat. Clench your fist. Wiggle index finger. Crunch a Coke 150 times. Repeat daily for the foreseeable future.

The Music Glove aims to obliterate the monotony, Guitar Hero-style. People wear the glove on their affected hand (strokes typically affect one side of the body), and the glove communicates with a specially created music game displayed on the connected Android tablet — provided as part of the package. Players need to make different hand movements, such as pinching their fingers to their thumb, to advance through the levels — the same movements patients need to recover. Over time, it tricks your hand into getting better.

So far only about 100 have been sold but the potential market is huge. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says more than 795,000 people a year suffer strokes, and many survivors have mobility issues. Music Glove CTO Daniel Zondervan understood that boredom was a factor in people failing at their physical therapy. Most stroke patients have two weeks of therapy before going home, and many insurance plans don’t cover extra sessions; patients are left with a booklet of instructions, which many don’t stick to. Zondervan thought that gamifying therapy might make a difference, and experimented until he came up with the Music Glove.

Not all physical therapists are sure it’s for everyone. “It sounds very clever, but I’m not sure if older people would find it that easy to use a tablet,” said Hilary Sentell, a certified athletic trainer who works at The Jackson Clinics in Virginia. Sentell felt she’d need some time with the glove to gauge its effectiveness — which is unlikely as her clinic would need to approve the $4,200 purchase. The cost is higher for clinics (the kit contains gloves for both hands and different sizes); home-use versions are priced at $1,149. Insurers don’t cover Music Glove. And don’t expect a Guitar Hero experience; due to licensing issues, you won’t recognize any of the music.

Still, it worked for Janet Johnson, a 60-year-old former aerospace engineer and pipe-fitter orbital welder. She started using the glove after she suffered a stroke in 2009 and had exhausted her insurance options. Although initially wary of the “game” element — video games weren’t “part of my childhood,” she told OZY — she kept going. After six weeks she noticed improvements, like being able to type again. Yes, the cost can be prohibitive, says Johnson. But if you’ve exhausted your insurance, she thinks the take-home therapy option is worth it.

Even though it didn’t turn her into a Guitar Hero maestro. She bought a Guitar Hero kit on eBay, set it up in the living room … and then found it way too complicated. “There was too much going on,” she said. “It was all lights and buttons; it’s now back in the box.”

An Inspiring Story of a Paraplegic Ms.Deepa Malik who ‘bounced back’ in life with the help of Physiotherapy and her determination

An Inspiring Story of a Paraplegic Ms.Deepa Malik who ‘bounced back’ in life with the help of Physiotherapy and her determination, created records, won an Arjuna award, travelled around the world and helped formulate policies for people with disabilities playing Sports. Today she is thankful to all those people who made her even more determined to break the stereotype. 

She made alterations in her home and slowly learnt to live in her new body. She was into fitness with regular Physiotherapy& Hydrotherapy. Deepa Malik calls herself ‘wheelchair-liberated,’ and is on a mission to urge people with disabilities to take up sports seriously.

Her life is an inspiration. Yet, she is proud to say she feeds on negativity. Because it is this negativity from people that has made her achieve the many milestones in her life and helped her bounce forward. She despises the term “bounce back”.

When repetitive tumour formations in her spinal cord left her a paraplegic, bound to a wheelchair, paralysed chest down, people assumed she would “die within the four walls of a room”.

And, it was this assumption she wanted to correct. Thus began the journey of Deepa Malik, who today proudly bears the tag of being the country’s first and oldest para-swimmer-athlete-biker-car rallyist. Para sports are sporting events played by those with disabilities. Besides the local and national levels, they can also represent their country at the Asian Para Games and Paralympics.

A free spirit with a great love for the outdoors, especially biking, Deepa grew up as a daughter of an Army officer. So, as a young girl when she was diagnosed with her first tumour in the spinal cord, her world came crashing down. It was her parents who saw her through surgery and rehabilitation and she could stand on her own feet.

But her happiness was short-lived. After her marriage to an Army officer in 1992 and the birth of two daughters, she learnt hers was a case of repetitive tumours and by 1999, Deepa realised she would lead the life of a paraplegic in a wheelchair. Deepa says she did not realise the enormity of it all till friends, neighbours and relatives started offering “condolences.” The three painful surgeries, 200 stitches on her ever-degenerating spinal cord, lack of bladder control , and various other ailments did not hurt her as much as the words of these people. But today she is thankful to all those people who made her even more determined to break the stereotype. 

She made alterations in her home and slowly learnt to live in her new body. She was into fitness with regular physiotherapy and hydrotherapy. But she could not alter the mindset of the people who ignored her and did not include her in any social activities.

It was then that she decided to make efforts to join the mainstream. She started a small garden restaurant that turned out to be a great hit. She started catering for large parties and made all those who turned away from her, to come to her for their party needs.

A television channel featured her and her restaurant. Someone saw her swim and called up to ask whether she could take part in swimming at the national level para sports meet. That was the life-changing moment for Deepa for whom her second innings began at the age of 36. After winning several medals for her State and country in para-swimming, she moved on to athletics. Here too, she won laurels. Then it was biking and later car rallying. Every step came with hurdles – sponsorships, clearances for modified bikes and cars, obtaining special licences. But she moved on regardless. She created records, won an Arjuna award, travelled around the world and helped formulate policies for people with disabilities playing sports. But Deepa does not want laurels for her awards and achievements and wants to be much more than the clich├ęd “role model”.

But she is happy when she is known as someone who inspired those with disability to take up an active sport. She urges them to move out so that the society becomes more open to their needs and creates disability-friendly infrastructure.

On her wish list is scuba diving, an Academy for training people on wheelchair, creating awareness in the corporate world and among individuals about sponsoring people for para sport events. Forty four-year-old Deepa calls herself as wheelchair-liberated and not wheelchair-bound.

It took two years of treatment and physiotherapy for Deepa to accept that her paralysis was for life. Her family has been her real strength, they have made changes around the house to make her more self sufficient.

“I strongly feel that the outdoors is a good way to keep fit. When I challenge myself for activities like these, I have to seriously train for it. The only way we, wheelchair users can lead a normal life is by keeping our body toned and exercised. Going to a doctor or hospital everyday for formal physiotherapy can be monotonous and makes you feel like a patient. But when you train and workout for fun activities, you not only get the required exercise but it also boosts up your morale. Others then take inspiration to be happy and healthy” says Deepa Malik.

She has won numerous accolades for her participation in various adventure sports. Whether it is swimming against the strong Yamuna current, or riding a special bike or even taking a shot at the Paralympic Games, she has done it all. She has won bronze medal in Women's Javelin Throw. She has got nominated in Limca Book of Records for her swimming records. She is associated with Himalayan Motorsports Association (H.M.A.) and Federation of Motor Sports Clubs of India (F.M.S.C.I.). She has done 8 days 1700 k.m. drive in minus degree temperatures. Even on an altitude of 18000 feet with oxygen shortage, she was able to sustain it all. It was - Raid De Himalaya. This journey covers many difficult paths including remote Himalayas, Leh, Shimla and Jammu.-Compiled  by Physiotherapy Jobs Portal.

USA: Now Florida & Michigan Law in December 2014 Allows Direct Access to Physical Therapy along with the other 48 States in USA:

USA: Florida & Michigan Law Allows Direct Access to Physical Therapy:

A doctor's prescription will no longer be needed to go to physical therapy in Michigan & Florida. People will be able to receive treatment for 21 days or 10 treatments, whichever comes first, without a prescription. Or they can go for an unlimited number of visits if it's to prevent injury or promote fitness. Health insurers won't have to cover physical therapy services if a prescription isn't issued.


What does patient access to physical therapists' services without referral mean and why is it needed?

Patient access to physical therapists' services without referral means the removal of the physician referral mandated by state law to access physical therapists' services for evaluation and treatment. Till now, in USA Forty-eight (48) states and the District of Columbia allow for evaluation and some form of treatment without physician referral. Some states have time or visit limits or provisions tied to treatment without a referral. Till recently, a referral is required by state law to initiate treatment by a licensed physical therapist in 2 states: Michigan and Oklahoma. Michigan and Oklahoma allow for evaluation without referral, but not treatment.


Supporters say allowing direct access to physical therapy will bring Michigan in line with 48 other states and expand consumer choice, prevent delays, contain medical costs and lead to better patient outcomes.

Jeffery Regan, head of the Physical Therapy department at Orthopaedic Associates of Michigan was working inside a busy therapy room Wednesday as many patients, their insurance deductibles having already been met, worked to squeeze in one more visit before the insurance clock reset.
Regan says the new law is a baby step."I think it's a great step in a positive direction for all patients," he adds.
