Carlsbad, CA (PRWEB) October 15, 2013
SCI Business Solutions Inc., the exclusive operator and franchisor of Project Walk® Spinal Cord Injury Recovery Center announces a new three-year partnership with innovator and industry leader Performance Health Systems LLC., the owner and global distributor of Power Plate® and bioDensity.
Through this strategic partnership, clients of Project Walk franchises will have unlimited access to custom designed Power Plate equipment which is based on scientifically-proven exercise protocols using Advanced Vibration™ technology. Based on the reflexive neuromuscular engagement that occurs as a result of the destabilizing effect of high-speed vibration, exercising on Power Plate has been shown to stimulate the natural production of the growth hormone that maintains tissue repair, muscle growth, brain function and other regenerative body activities.
Project Walk maintains its reputation as the world leader in spinal cord injury recovery by setting itself apart through activity-based programs in conjunction with using state-of-the-art equipment, research and methodology development. “Partnering with Performance Health Systems LLC. ensures all our franchise centers will have the best equipment, training, and performance systems in the industry,” says Tim Yates, SCI Business Solutions Inc., President and CEO.
In addition to providing franchise locations with custom branded Power Plate pro7™ and Power Plate pro5HP™ equipment, Performance Health Systems LLC is delivering their bioDensity™ system to the Project Walk - Carlsbad facility; the first activity-based recovery center to use a unit of its kind. Based on the science of Wolff’s law, the theory demonstrating bone adaptation to applied pressure, bioDensity is a groundbreaking system offering a non –pharmacological, non-invasive treatment for the loss of bone mineral density. This partnership allows Project Walk and Performance Health Systems LLC to further collaborate on groundbreaking research projects that will progress the world’s understanding of both whole body vibration and osteogenic loading on spinal cord injuries.
Eric Harness, Director of Research and Development for Project Walk states, “Our goal is to better understand how to reverse the effects of decreased bone density due a spinal cord injury. Such knowledge can help change the way the injury is treated across the world.”
“By investing in the advancement and future of our industry, signing this deal is just the beginning of our global growth plan,” says Yates. Lee Hillman, Performance Health Systems CEO adds, “Adding Power Plate and bioDensity to the outstanding work being conducted by Project Walk Centers creates a great partnership. We are excited by the research Project Walk will be conducting with these advanced systems.”
Project Walk, the world leader in spinal cord injury recovery, looks forward to the improved quality of care that Performance Health Systems LLC will bring to its locations and the clients that venture to Project Walk from all over the world. In the past 15 years, their global network of franchised and licensed facilities has treated thousands of clients throughout the Unites States in over 30 countries.
