Lifting a 500lb person 52 microns, 32 times per second using less than 40 watts of electrical power is an industry first.
Riviera Beach, Florida (PRWEB) April 30, 2015
Juvent Sports (http://www.juventsports.com) has helped thousands of people, patients and athletes get relief from arthritis joint pain and bone related pain. Until now the technology was limited to people weighing 280 pounds or less. Demand by Physical Therapists and athletic organizations representing professional football players, has led to the development of the Juvent Pro XL; a unit capable of handling users up to 500 lbs. “With such a delicate threshold and precise (sub-millimeter, 0.05mm) movements, re-creating the critical resonant micro-impact signal for users this large was significant.” – Peter Simonson, a leading medical device developer and Georgia Tech mechanical engineer.
Our development team led by Steve Ferguson employed new technologies developed from the aerospace industry to make the required mechanical and electronic fortifications. “Our platforms are designed to run for over 100,000 cycles and the additional stress placed on the unit created a number of unique challenges. For example, just testing a 560lb payload can be dangerous. You cannot test our platforms by simply adding more steel weight, our resonant software requires the load to mimic the unique biological composition of a human to work.” said Ferguson. On the team is the world’s leading expert and key patent holder in resonant frequency feedback, Dr. Titi Trandifir. "Lifting a 500lb person 52 microns, 32 times per second using less than 40 watts of electrical power is an industry first." said Dr. Trandifir.
The benefits of the Juvent ProXL will go far beyond athletes. Many larger patients with musculoskeletal and joint pain issues will now be able to incorporate Juvent into their daily routine. "Physical Therapists and physicians have been requesting this for some time. But the R&D was challenging. Players like Eric Wood, pro football center, has always been on the edge of our weight capacity." said Rush Simonson, CEO of Juvent.
The Juvent Pro delivers thousands of low-magnitude and high-frequency micro-impact pulses that enter through the heels of the feet and move up the entire body. These micro-impacts uniquely stimulate the body’s muscles and bones promoting circulation, joint health and healing. Users simply stand on the Juvent for as little as 10 minutes per day and many start feeling results within days. Recommended and used by world-renowned trainers, doctors, physical therapists, and chiropractors, the Juvent Pro is changing the way athletes are approaching training and recovery.
Juvent also works with The David Leadbetter Golf Academy and is an Official Proud Partner of the NFL Alumni Association (NFLA). Juvent is also a Corporate Advisory Roundtable Member of the National Osteoporosis Foundation (NOF)
