A stroke or CVA occurs when blood flow to the brain is interrupted and deprives the brain of much needed oxygen.

Stroke rehabilitation can be complex depending on the extent of the injury.

Following a stroke a person may experience flaccidity (floppy or low tone) or spasticity (tight/high tone)

Training on a VibroGym can help by:

  • Perform stretching exercises safely to increase Range of Motion and increase flexibility
  • Reduce swelling and increase blood flow
  • Perform strengthening exercises to restore muscle strength to weakened muscles

This allows the person to become as functional as possible by teaching them new ways of living whilst coping with the disability.
