The Technogym approach for the medical sector
The importance of physical activity and exercise accessible to all is what guides our work, and translates into the solutions we offer for managing patients during the prevention phase and throughout the entire therapy.Clinics, hospitals, rehabilitation centers, old-age facilities and sports medicine: whatever your field, our equipment, software and recommended training methods will enable you to further assist your patients. If you happen to own a gymnasium, our proposals may be an ideal opportunity to enlarge your clientele base, by arranging a specific section dedicated to rehabilitation, or usable (even autonomously) by people who wouldn’t be able to use traditional equipment.
What is Technogym’s Medical-Scientific Department?
If we are able to offer these solutions, we have to thank the constant research performed by our Medical-Scientific Department. Our team of experts, supported by the Technogym Scientific Advisory Board headed by Prof. Steven Blair, develops products that are bio-mechanically designed for safely and appropriately treating pathologies, and tests every piece of equipment so that is passes a series of analyses, including the baropodometric analysis, the EMG analysis or the gait analysis.
What is “Exercise is Medicine”?
Our medical-scientific team is also involved in promoting – by means of campaigns, booklets and guides – healthy lifestyle habits based on the benefits deriving from physical exercise. For this reason, we are partners of "Exercise is Medicine". The project, initiated in the United States by the American College of Sports and the American Medical Association, aims to define a set of standard exercises for treating certain pathologies, in addition to transforming physical exercise into an actual “medicine” that doctors can prescribe during each visit.
