New York City - Five years ago, 23 yeLisa Trevisanar old Italian model Lisa Trevisan collapsed on the dance floor of a disco in Venice, and woke from a coma 25 days later, paralyzed and unable to speak more than three words - "Si," "No," and "Miami" - the city where she studied English the previous summer. Slowly, she came to understand she had suffered a massive stroke of a variety that usually leaves victims permanently disabled.

But on Sunday, November 2, 2008 this once-paralyzed stroke survivor now known throughout Italy by her pen name, "Lisa Festa," crossed the finish line of the New York City Marathon, and celebrated her victory over a condition that once threatened to keep her wheelchair bound and speechless for life. Her completion of the marathon is a testimonial to her indomitable spirit - and her hard work in an Italian clinic equipped with state-of-the-art computerized rehabilitation systems developed in the U.S. and Switzerland.  >>

Distinguish Yourself... Biodex Helps Keep Athletes in the Game Worldwide!

April 1, 2008
BIODEX PRESS RELEASE: Lila Corwin

Distinguish YourselfSoccer players are among the most amazing of athletes. Combining incredible skill, agility, strength and endurance during every match, they push themselves to the limits of physical capability – without using their hands. In so doing, however, they also place themselves in danger of injury on a regular basis.

"That's why we need a clinical staff of 12," jokes David Fevre, MSC, MCSP, SRP and Senior Physical Therapist for English Premier League Football (Soccer) Club, Blackburn Rovers, "Despite being in great shape - or maybe because they play so often at the extremes of their physical capabilities – injury is part of the game for elite soccer players. To help keep our 36 team members on the playing field we have a support staff that includes five chartered physiotherapists, three sports scientists, three massage therapists and a medical doctor. It's a pretty large staff, even by British Premier League Soccer standards. But we feel that the more we can keep our best players healthy, the better the chance we'll have to succeed. Fevre, who has served as a physical therapist for over 26 years, including a 14-year stint in the British Rugby Football League plus time at hospitals before joining Manchester United (1994-1999), incorporates an integrated approach to help keep his athletes from getting injured, and to get those who are hurt ready to return to action without significant risk of reinjury. He includes in his arsenal of exercise, weight training, nutritional education and sessions on equipment designed to improve muscular and cardiovascular strength and endurance such as cycles and treadmills.

"One piece of the equation I consider especially important is our Biodex Multi-Joint System," states Fevre. "I really like it for the isokinetic capability, but I use it in the other modes as well. It is very useful as an exercise-based rehabilitation tool. I was always taught that exercise is the most important part of physio, and this is one of the few machines with a plug that actually provides exercise modality."  >>
