Carlsbad, CA (PRWEB) October 8, 2010
Flexiciser TM Inc. and San Joaquin Rehabilitation Center are working together to address the obesity epidemic in the USA. With the addition of the Physical Movement Therapy Device Bariatric, San Joaquin Rehabilitation Center can now offer Movement Therapy to some of the 11 million Americans who weigh between 350 and 700 pounds. The Bariatric unit was installed at the request of Actor Richard Kiel (Jaws) who is a client of the center and a regular user of the Physical Movement Therapy Device.
“Flexiciser’s Physical Movement Therapy TM Devices are the only technology that offers patients a natural walking/running stride, moving arms and legs simultaneously with no weight-bearing impact on joints even for complete quadriplegics! Veterans and other clients who are wheelchair users have found a great deal of relief from spasticity, limited range of motion and poor blood circulation. Movement Therapy TM has been scientifically proven to increase the overall health of individuals as well as preventing the potential deterioration of life quality due to physical limitations,” says Bryan S.J. Mallindine, the President of Flexiciser TM Inc.
“In a time of unsustainable health care costs and the number of Americans battling obesity growing, the benefits of Movement Therapy TM are huge,” Mallindine adds.
In 2007 approximately 30% of the population was considered obese, with a BMI (Body Mass Index) of 30 or higher, and current research predicts that number will rise to 42% within the next 10 years.
