Last week SmartCells cushioning technology was featured at the annual convention of the Physical Therapy Association of Washington, at the Washington Convention Center in Seattle.
The 2014 PTWA conference featured a presentation discussing how to tackle physical therapy problems by keynote speaker Peter Johnston, author of “Negotiating with Giants.” The conference also featured an additional 16 courses including classes regarding the topics of fall prevention and the use of Tai Chi to improve balance.
The SmartCells exhibit booth was at times overwhelmed by the conference attendees expressing interest in the unique cushioning technology that can reduce impact forces by up to 90% for their patients. Interest was strong among therapists, administrators and educators who provide rehabilitation services for seniors, children, and athletes of all ages, in acute care setting, in-home environments, and therapy offices. Of particular interest was watching the disbelief on peoples’ faces during demonstrations where the stable, firm SmartCells standing surface was shown to be so responsive that it could cushion as fragile as an egg.
Also attracting lots of interest were the SmartCells insoles for use with patients and clients who are on the move. It was clearly a technology not seen before.
All-in-all, the PTWA was a great venue to show off the SmartCells cushioning technology.
The family of SmartCells Personal Training products utilizes the same technology that has long been trusted by major companies as an anti-fatigue solution for their standing workers and, in senior living settings, as a solution to keep senior citizens safe from fall-related injuries.
Available in three different colors (Black, Light Brown, and Grey) as well as three different sizes (36”X60”, 52”X60”, 52”X88”), the remarkable SmartCells Personal Training mats are low profile (1/2”) and have molded-in beveled edges. For custom applications, SATECH offers custom-sized mats as well as a wall-to-wall flooring option that is perfect for in-home gyms, and aerobics flooring.
To unload impact stress on-the-go, the all-new line of SmartCells Personal Training Insoles easily slips into most shoes: a Standard flat style, for use with or without orthotics, as well as an Active Orthotic style that offers arch and heel support, personalized for size and designed for impact-related activities.
