As we get older, our bodies become more brittle, and any injury could be fatal. Unlike kids and young adolescents, the body of a mature adult has less ability to heal and restore itself naturally after an injury. The older you get, the harder it gets for your body to heal itself; and most likely, you will need medical attention.
So, you need to avoid injuries as much as possible. However, that is easier said than done. Some of our lifestyles and jobs predispose us to situations where we can easily get injured. For instance, people whose job entails doing strenuous physical activities such as lifting heavy loads, operating heavy machinery, or physical sports like running and boxing.
Injury can even occur where and when it is least expected. You could strain an ankle while going up the stairs in your home. Strain your wrist’s tendons while carrying a heavy box at the office. Miss a step and sprain your ankle while out and about. The world is full of opportunities to get an injury in varying degrees.
Lessen Injury Recovery Time
When (sadly, not if) you are injured, the best we all can hope for is less severity and quick recovery of the injury. It sure helps if you always take the necessary precautions, such as wearing safety gear, safely using machinery, and be on the lookout for caution signs. Safety gear includes wearing safety equipment like hard hats, helmets, gloves, goggles, among other safety gear.
In the event you get an injury, the faster you seek medical attention, the quicker you will begin the recovery process. Different injuries warrant different types of medical experts’ attention and various recovery procedures.
Arm or Leg Injury Recovery
Dubbed the rebless™, this device described by its manufacturer – Rehabilitation Robotics Company – as a state-of-the-art Continuous Passive Motion (CPM) is designed to help patients quickly regain their motor abilities in their arms or legs after an injury.
The device does indeed incorporate cutting-edge technologies in its use. That includes telemedicine support, where a physician can remotely monitor the patient. The physician will then analyze your report and give you their diagnosis—all at the convenience of pushing a button while at home or your workplace.
How does it work
The rebless™ machine works for various treatments ranging from knee, wrist, elbow, and ankle injuries. It does so by moving in a range of motions designed to work specific tendons, muscles, and joints, thus aiding in quick recovery.
It functions in three modes, passively, active assistance, and active resisted mode. You get to select which one according to your schedule as directed by the physician. Health experts have praised it as a reliable machine for home therapy for patients looking for musculoskeletal and neurological rehabilitation. The rebless™ can also be found at health facilities offering injury recovery services.
