The MAT Table Story
The cornerstone of Excellence in Rehabilitation is the creation, design and production of the MAT table (Multiple Applications Table). The MAT table advantage is that it offers both rehabilitation treatment and multi-function exercise capabilities in a single table at a remarkably small footprint.
There are currently more than 150,000 licensed physical therapists in the United States using equipment that was intended for healthy gym members. The MAT table provides the answer for heavier, debilitated patients. A better way to provide care.
The MAT Table
The MAT table is a multiple function exercise apparatus that also may be used as a treatment table. It was designed by physical therapists for inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation centers. The unique components of the MAT table allow for all—including bariatric patients—to transfer on and off the table without fear of falling. It can accomplish five functions with the footprint of one machine. Until now, this type of equipment has not been available to physical therapists.
- It’s a manipulation and treatment table. The table is longer and wider than traditional tables.
- It’s a resisted LE exercise platform. The patient slides on a steel platform that supports up to 500 lbs.
- It’s a pulley system. A pulley attachment allows variable arm exercises resisted by the patient’s body weight or by the weight of the sliding frame
- It’s a traction table that uniquely utilizing self, manual or mechanical traction.
- It’s a tilt table. The table adjusts from level to head elevated 45 degrees or head down 7 degrees.
The foot component swivels to enable the table to be used as a progressive resistant squat and multifunction device. The foot component has attachments to enable ankle exercises and to monitor weight bearing via a digital scale. It can also flip from flat to 90 degrees to provide a platform for squats. The ankle attachment pivots to allow dorsiflexion and plantar flexion ankle stretching in 5 degree increments.
