One of the unique tools to Fyzical Therapy and Balance Centers in Las Vegas' outpatient practice is the use of the ceiling mounted harness sytem.
Fyzical Summerlin and Fyzical Henderson each feature 100 feet of track that allow patients to ambulate over various surfaces, from solid ground, to ever changing soft surfaces. These harnesses are also mounted by other balance devices bringing a level of safety and security that is unmatched within the Las Vegas valley.
Exercise science has proven that for the body to adapt, sufficient demands must be placed on the tissues. When in the harness system, patients can complete exercises above their comfort level and break through self limiting fear behavior. The harness system provides zero assistance in weight off-loading, so the patient is not receiving a decrease in functional independence but eliminates the threat of bodily harm that comes with falling.
"There are many activities I would not have dreamt I could have done if it wasn't for the harness system, but now my confidence is much higher and I've found myself doing more at home just because I believe in myself." – William W.
Any patient being seen for balance therapy uses the harness system until the physical therapist and patient decide their abilities exceed the need.
