Olten, Switzerland (PRWEB) July 25, 2014
The Teletón in Mexico is an annual 24-plus-hour TV and radio broadcast, started in 1996, to raise money for children's rehabilitation centers (known as Centro de Rehabilitación Infantil Teletón or CRIT – "Teletón Children's Rehabilitation Center" in English) for disabled children. The Teletón’s mission is "to provide knowledge about physical disabilities, giving a strong message about respect, equality and support to people in these conditions". Teletón Foundation is expanding quickly with a goal to opening rehabilitation centers in each of the 32 states of Mexico.
Excellent Therapy Success with the G-EO System
Parents witnessing the trial confirmed that their children made significant progress during and after the therapy sessions; children could climb the stairs for the first time in their life, stand more upright and were able to walk for a longer period of time without getting tired as fast as before. Step length and cadence had increased significantly and the gait pattern in general had improved dramatically. This overwhelming success during the trial combined with the positive feedback from both doctors and physiotherapists led to Teletón’s decision to purchase the first G-EO System Evolution for one of the Teletón hospitals in Mexico.
Mr. René Trost, CEO of Reha Technology AG, comments: "We are proud to reach another milestone in the global expansion of our company. The trial at Teletón showed that our G-EO System significantly increases the therapy success and most importantly, improves the quality of life of the patient."
