WAKEFIELD, Mass. - Feb. 19, 2014 - PRLog -- The Quick Board is a state-of-the-art diagnostic and training system used by professional, college and amateur athletes to aid in athletic training, testing and rehabilitation – both physical and neurological. It provides physical therapists a way to quickly capture valid, accurate data to help them track training progress, test for overtraining and make objective decisions. Its high impact sensors track each time someone makes contact with a specific part of the board, and real-time results are transferred to a visible control panel, like an iPad, for easy and objective evaluation.

“The Quick Board is a very unique, interactive tool. I can use it for anything - ankles, knees, shoulders core strengthening, lumbar stability, etc. It challenges patients in a way they never have been challenged before, testing their agility, reaction time, balance and quickness,” said HDPT therapist Svet Wilson, PTA, ATC. “We can even out deficiencies; unlike with a typical ladder drill, I can actually see the discrepancy between two sides and immediately adjust our program. Plus, using the iPad, patients can also visualize their own progression and can compare their scores. They can check themselves, and I can continuously check myself as a therapist,” said Wilson.

The Quick Board can:

·      Enhance and shorten the rehabilitation process and assist with critical sports medicine evaluations and decisions such as "return to play" with objective, real-time data.

·      Deliver baseline scores on speed, agility and reaction drills to compare pre- and post-injury data, track daily progress, and evaluate the effectiveness of your rehabilitation program.

·      Restore pre-injury communication between the brain and the injured body part - neurological rehabilitation. This is a critical advancement in therapy, as sports medicine professionals have found that even after athletes have returned to pre-injury strength and range of motion, they may suffer from a neurological deficit, which increases the risk of another injury.

·      Enable our therapists to better determine whether a patient is favoring a non-injured body part during recovery. The Quick Board’s sensors track when an athlete doesn’t fully use an injured side of the body. This type of overcompensation can cause athletes to favor their healthy, non-injured legs, which can lead to additional injuries.
