Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution partnership with the Somatron® Corporation to offer vibroacoustic therapy products to a larger consumer market. Founded in 1985 by Byron Eakin and based in Tampa, Florida, the Somatron® Corporation is the leader in the vibroacoustic therapy field and they set the standard for the industry. The patented Somatron® products are involved extensively in programs conducted by universities, hospitals and private and government facilities including the National Institutes of Health, the Bethesda Naval Medical Center and the U.S. Air Force. When music is converted to tactile sensations which permeate the body with stimulating and soothing sound vibrations, this is called vibroacoustic therapy. Somatron® has achieved this through their patented Somatron® Second Diaphragm which produces the sensory vibrations, unlike other vibroacoustic products on the market that are just simple pulses that repeat at regular intervals, rather akin to listening to music with only one note and one beat.
Somatron® products help people with disabilities and special needs in a variety of ways. As stimulation is one of the most common and successful treatment approaches for disabilities, Somatron® equipment has been successful in providing both unique stimulation combined with total relaxation, and has helped in reaching even the most difficult non-verbal patients, bringing smiles to faces that have never known this expression. Somatron's Soma Seating products such as the Recliners and the Body Pillow are designed to specifically help with proper positioning, which is so crucial for comfort and relaxation. This soft furniture can additionally be effective as calming and relaxing "chill-out" tools for special needs children, and for those suffering anxiety, tension and depression, encouraging them to open up more and talk more freely while using Somatron® therapy. This is especially true for those suffering with autism, and this vibroacoustic therapy helps to provide the necessary stimulation to reduce aggression, self-injury and stereotypical behaviors.
Somatrons® have also been successfully used for people suffering age related dementia, helping to improve their quality of life, with their Snugums™ product being particularly well received in this field. Somatron® sessions have been found to reduce pain by over 53% by the National Institute of Health, and through studies done through an extensive Pain Management Program developed by Somatron®. Applications for other individuals and conditions include considerable benefits for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) victims as well. “We are proud to offer these incredible vibroacoustic therapy products from the Somatron® Corporation to more consumers,” said Hulet Smith, Founder and CEO of Rehabmart. “As the world's most widely used and recommended music vibration equipment, the products from Somatron® have been extensively tested and findings indicate multiple positive applications for children and adults with disabilities and special needs.
