Technology & Equipment
When you want to take your game to the next level, the experts at the Marshall Sports Medicine Institute have the tools to help you recover from injury and become a better, faster and stronger athlete while working to decrease the risk of future injury. The staff selected technologies that are not commonly available in this area and offer a higher level of functional retraining, sports-specific retraining and/or the latest in sports performance training technology. Some examples:
- The Noramco HS-Elite High-Speed Treadmill, which reaches speeds up to 31 miles per hour and inclines up to 40 percent, uses a harness system to help you push your limits in a safe, controlled setting.
- The AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill® uses a state-of-the-art unweighting system to reduce stress on joints, allowing you to move forward with rehabilitation and training even when you are not yet able to bear weight on your lower extremities. The AlterG® is also beneficial to patients with stitches or other devices that prevent them from using the center's aquatic therapy tools.
- Aquatic therapy uses the buoyancy and resistance of water for low-impact rehabilitation and training, and MSMI offers both hot and cold pools and a HydroWorx® Underwater Treadmill.
- No matter what your activity or fitness level, the risk of injury is an unfortunate reality. The MSMI offers on-site X-rays, because timely and targeted treatment is the first step toward recovery.
