The REVIVER machine, by Isodymanics, is designed to help ease symptoms of neuromuscular conditions such as Parkinson's Disease by stimulating the vestibular system, the sensory system that provides a sense of balance and information about body position. Scroll down to see video testimonials.
PARKINSON'S NEWS TODAY has announced that a trial is being overseen by Terry O’Brien, a neurologist at Monash University and led by Ben Sinclair, a brain imaging expert at Monash and with Alfred Health, to understand how it can improve balance, mobility and sensory-motor coordination in people with moderate to advanced Parkinson’s disease and atypical parkinsonism.
Isodynamics reports early evidence suggesting the Reviver’s use can improve mobility and lessen Parkinson’s symptoms, with patients demonstrating a 22% increase in mobility; namely, quicker “up and go” test times over an average of 26 days. This test measures the time it takes for a person to rise from a chair, walk three meters (about 10 feet), turn around and return, then sit down again.
Enrolled patients will be split into two groups, based on their diagnoses. One group will undertake the REVIVER exercise regime on top of their standard of care, and the second (a control group) will continue with standard of care without using the REVIVER.
Those interested in participating or receiving more information about the trial can call Isodynamics at 02-9524-2188 (in Australia, country code +61) or click below to read more and complete the form.
The Isodynamics REVIVER is now a patented solution and the devices themselves are listed on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods as a Class 1 Medical Device.
The Isodynamics REVIVER Neuromuscular Rehabilitation Clinic offers qualified Exercise Physiologists treating patients with the unique, patented REVIVER technology to reduce the effects of neuromuscular conditions.
Channel 10 in Australia profiled patients using the REVIVER system including a patient with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) who went from 3 years using a walker to 100% unaided walking in just weeks on REVIVER.
Parkinson's disease patient Peter J Daniels talks of the reduction of his disease symptoms after using the Isodynamics REVIVER device for 8 minutes a day over a period of eight weeks. The ongoing results speak for themselves.
Our patients tell you in their own words how the REVIVER system has transformed their lives or that of their loved ones. You'll hear from people with all types of conditions from Parkinson's Disease and Multiple Sclerosis to Chronic Pain, Rheumatoid and Osteo Arthritis and more.
The natural response of the body being tilted in a radial fashion to gravity causes uniform firing of the neural pathways. This creates the sending and receiving of electrical signals throughout the nervous system, which can activate segments throughout the body that may be dormant due to injury, disease or disability. This in turn improves overall health, strength, balance, mobility and wellbeing.
The REVIVER system is more than just a machine. Every patient is managed by our trained and fully qualified Exercise Physiologists (EPs) one-to-one addressing each persons individual needs.
All our EPs are ESSA-accredited university qualified allied health professionals, equipped with the knowledge, skills and competence to design, deliver and evaluate safe and effective exercise interventions such as REVIVER for people with neuromuscular diseases and conditions. Our EPs at REVIVER Clinic are unique in their qualifications to utilise REVIVER therapy.
ESSA is Exercise & Sports Science Australia (ESSA), formerly known as the Australian Association for Exercise and Sports Science (MESS), and is the professional organisation committed to establishing, promoting and defending the career paths of tertiary trained exercise and sports science practitioners.
REVIVER devices are a new innovative solution for patients that need the benefits of exercise to tone and condition naturally, even if they are only capable of laying, sitting or standing in a static position due to disability.
REVIVER devices enable this without the traditional effects of impact, pain or exertion associated with exercise therapies.
