Our new Physio center is equiped with various exercise facilities which allow Residents to exercise different muscle groups in order to maintain or strengthen their general physique. Each resident is exercised under the individual care of nursing staff in order to maintain a safe exercise environment
Electrical Stimulation Chest
uses an electrical current to cause a single muscle or a group of muscles to contract. By placing electrodes on the skin in various locations the physical therapist can recruit the appropriate muscle fibres. Contracting the muscle through Electric Stimulation helps strengthen the affected muscle. The Physiotherapist can change the current setting to allow for a forceful or gentle muscle contraction. Along with increasing muscle strength, the contraction of the muscle also promotes blood supply to the area that assists in healing.
