In addition to the underwater treadmill, PHYSIO-TECH has expanded
its portfolio for dog physiotherapy:
The new "PHYSIO-Swing" is a motorized balance trainer that aims at the deep muscles. Dogs enter the therapy platform, whose speed and angle of rotation can be varied by remote control.
To these movements the dog must react in order to stay in balance. Thereby the deep muscles are activated in a way that cannot be reached by any other training.
Systematic work with the device stabilizes the spine, hips and shoulders, improves gait and body awareness. This allows effective help against many back problems such as herniatic discs.
This training of the sense of balance also promotes the cognitive development of the dog – in an almost playful way. This makes the device very well suited for use in agility sports, where dog and owner improve their communication by collaborative work.
