Our goal, as supported by our slogan "life in motion", is to offer the experience of movement in an effective and a validated new way. At THERA-Trainer, we rely on evidence-based therapy to develop effective and affordable device-based concepts, to improve outcomes of neurological and geriatric rehabilitation.
THERA Trainer is driven by proven and latest scientific findings. The following studies validate therapeutic effectiveness, safety and reliability of THERA-Trainer solutions.
