Tilt Tables for Physical Therapy Rehabilitation

Hemiparesis patients are often found to have difficulty standing and walking in the early stages, as as a result the recovery process is mainly in the lying or sitting position and often unable to do it in a standing position. Using tile tables will allow patients to practice standing faster and more safely which helps increase leg muscle strength. Use of tilt table help with the following:

- Practice standing

- Facilitate weight bearing

- Increasing leg strength

- Reduce spasms, spasms of weak legs

- Stretching the calf and foot muscles

- Stimulate joint perception

Patients with spinal cord injuries often have leg muscle weakness associated with various complications. The use of tilt table in this group of patients therefore plays an important role in rehabilitation, treatment and prevention of many complications, including:

- Balancing aid
