Performance Health Technologies Garners Additional Media Coverage, Including Scientific American's News Blog
Date:11/6/2008

TRENTON, N.J., Nov. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Performance Health Technologies, Inc. (PHT), a leader in the development and marketing of innovative products that guide and monitor exercise and rehabilitation, announced today that the company's proprietary Core:Tx(R) rehabilitation product was featured in the September 5 edition of "60 Second Science," the news blog of Scientific American.

The article, "Virtual Rehabilitation: Wireless Motion Sensor to Help Treat That Old Football Injury," coincided with the beginning of the NFL season and included PHT's innovative Core:Tx(R) therapy system in its story on sports injury diagnosis and rehabilitation. Designed to enhance existing rehabilitation as well as preventative and strengthening protocols, Core:Tx(R) turns rehabilitation into a wireless, game-like challenge that is entertaining and works for a variety of patients recovering from both neuromuscular conditions and joint injuries.

The Core:Tx wireless therapy system also appeared in the October edition of BioMechanics, a monthly trade published for sports medicine and movement specialists in orthopedic surgery, physical and occupational therapy, clinical athletic training, O&P, podiatry, psychiatry and rehab. The story detailed upgrades to the current Core:Tx, including the installation of Bluetooth technology to help the system run stronger and faster.

The technology was also recently the topic of a feature news segment on KCBD-TV, the NBC affiliate in Lubbock, Texas and KDRV-TV, the ABC affiliate in Medford, Oregon. "Into Tomorrow with Dave Graveline," a nationally syndicated radio show on the Advanced Radio Network, aired a segment on Core:Tx(R) last month. Also in September, Robert D. Prunetti, CEO of PHT, was interviewed on "Tech Talk with Craig Ferguson" and appeared on the October 29 segment of "Groks Science Show," which airs on WHPK 88.5 FM in Chicago.

Peter Sanzio, PT, CSCS, a licensed physical therapist and clinical applications specialist with PHT, was interviewed for an article about chronic pain in For the Record Magazine, the nation's leading newsmagazine for health information professionals.

Core:Tx(R) is a patent-pending wireless system built on PHT's innovative MotionTrack(TM) platform, used by professional sports teams. It combines hardware and software operating on a PC as well as a soap bar-sized motion-sensing device that can be attached anywhere on the body with adjustable straps. This device senses the user's limb motion relative to the joint and continuously transmits that information wirelessly to the software. This real-time visual feedback helps keep the patient engaged in the therapy routine, while simultaneously aiding neuromuscular reeducation and strengthening muscles throughout an adjustable range of motion.
