Fusion Physical Therapy & Sports Performance athletes have access to a state of the art facility featuring the most innovative rehabilitation tools such as the AlterG, Vertimax, Jacob’s Ladder, MRS, Free Motion System, Shuttle Press Pro Style, The Curve Woodway Treadmill, Power Cranks, TRX, kettlebells and Rogue Power Rack. Our equipment is used for diagnostic purposes, isokinetic and isometric testing as well as strengthening and conditioning which allow our DPTs to provide a purposeful and customized plan of care for the individual athlete.
Originally designed to accommodate clients with back problems, the Jacob’s Ladder offers athletes recovering from knee, ankle, hip and back injuries a superb cardiovascular and core workout while strengthening supporting muscle groups. Because the Jacob’s Ladder automatically adjusts to a client’s speed, an attending medical professional can modulate training and track performance.
Fusion Physical Therapy & Sports Performance is one of a few facilities in New York using the Anti-Gravity Treadmill (AlterG) to expedite clients’ rehabilitation time. With patented NASA technology, the AlterG allows for partial weight-bearing training for athletes recovering from any lower-body injury.
Monitored Rehab Systems (MRS)
MRS is the gold standard in rehabilitation and strength training and Fusion Physical Therapy & Sports Performance is among a few facilities in New York City that offers it. With its video-game technology and points-awarded for every “game” or exercise completed, MRS helps clients actually enjoy doing their rehab drills. Each machine provides real-time feedback through sensors and computer software, facilitating optimal training and testing for motor control, proprioception and coordination. As a result of this stimulation of the neuromuscular system, significant strength gains occur rapidly.
By replacing regular cranks found on stationery bicycles with independent cranks, Fusion Physical Therapy & Sports Performance Doctors of Physical Therapy (DPTs) are knocking weeks off Rehab. With an independent crank, one leg cannot help the other pedal, so the client cannot relax on the backstroke, assuming the other foot will follow. Instead, the client must engage the hip flexors and hamstring muscles to actively raise the pedal. This isolated movement ensures that the client’s leg muscles become balanced.
