SHEBOYGAN — VibeTech and Tender Hearts Senior Care have announced a collaboration aimed at making the VibeTech 2 physical therapy system available to clients of the senior home care provider.
The NASA inspired physical therapy (PT) equipment was designed, tested and patented by VibeTech – recently releasing an enhanced edition. The “VibeTech 2” semi-recumbent device and software system applies therapeutic vibration through the lower extremities of patients recovering from injury, surgery, or experiencing weakness and frailty due to aging, muscle disuse or immobility.
These health challenges mirror those facing the majority of the Tender Hearts’ clients. The collaboration recognizes the benefits to the seniors served, consistent with Tender Hearts’ mission to offer a wide range of care options, supporting the highest quality of life; and, the VibeTech commitment to provide innovative PT solutions.
Tender Hearts also recognizes the potential of the VibeTech 2 technology to shift the paradigm in the PT industry; enhancing the quality of life for clients with limited mobility and increasing the potential of remaining in their homes. The VibeTech 2 clinical studies conducted to receive U.S. FDA listing, and the patents currently granted, underscore the proven results in over 10,000 completely safe instances of use with positive patient outcomes in pain reduction and increased muscle strength – key quality of life indicators.
“This collaboration will allow us to continue the clinical studies on the positive impact of VibeTech 2 with this growing senior population, identifying potential enhancements, for comfort and ergonomics, along with providing further direction for software development focused on patient engagement and documentation. This will give us more traction as we move into larger market channels including fitness centers, hospital systems, private PT clinics, and workplace gyms” said Dr. Jeff Leismer, VibeTech CEO. “We are looking forward to working with the Tender Hearts leadership; both Dawn and Todd Wittig have outstanding reputations in the field of senior care.”
Tender Hearts Founder, Dawn Wittig stated “It will be an honor to play a role in advancing the development and integration of VibeTech’s technology. We see great potential for our client group, today and into the future, and we wanted to be one of the first on board with this revolutionary technology.”
