Physical Therapy Equipment

No one wants to think about injury or illness, and sometimes hearing the words, “You need to attend physical therapy” can be frightening. However, many times, after proper training and one-on-one time with a qualified physical therapist, you or your loved one can continue physical therapy with a few simple pieces of equipment in your home.

At-Home Physical Therapy

Sometimes being in the comfort and privacy of your own home can help you heal, mend or even train for a sporting event.

Another great option is a simple floor model that you can use while working at a desk or watching TV. These types of exercisers range from $30 to $200, again depending on the settings and options you wish to have.

Gripping Aids

If you’ve injured your hand, have arthritis, residual stroke symptoms or carpal tunnel issues, your therapist may recommend strengthening and Grip aids for at-home use. Gripping aids are typically worn as a glove on the injured or affected hand, similar to what gymnasts use in competition. They reduce the stress on your tendons and allow you to hold onto things with more confidence. Quality grip gloves run from $30 up to $150 and come with directions on how to keep them clean. A therapist may want to measure and fit you for such a glove. Other devices, like therapy putty, stress balls and spring-loaded grippers, may be recommended to continue hand exercises at home.

Physical therapy devices require little maintenance and upkeep, and benefit the patient in the home environment by allowing them freedom to recover in privacy and saving time and money in the long-run.
