"I have found the Proprio 5000 to be very beneficial for upper/lower extremity pre/post operative patients as well as sports enhancement and performance. This machine gives great feedback and objective data, which allows us to track a patient’s progress and provide useful and reliable information to physicians. I can’t tell you how many times I have had athletes, coaches and the athletes’ parents say that they feel and look like they have more balance and stability on the court or field. The best of all is that the athletes enjoy working on the Proprio 5000. We have seen steady increase of athletes seeking every advantage over their competitors and the Proprio 5000 has been a definite advantage.”

"The Proprio 4000 model is used on a daily basis in our therapy department. It has allowed us to provide our patients with advanced balance, strength, endurance, motor planning, and cognitive training in an acute setting. It improves our patient’s mobility, body alignment, overall strength, and educates them on the cause and effect of their core structure and habits. Our patients, ranging from TBI, SCI, Stroke, Ortho, back injury, and debility have benefited tremendously from incorporating the Proprio into their daily therapy sessions."

"We purchased our 1st Proprio 5000 approximately 4 years ago with a 2nd unit around 12 months later. Let me emphasize this point – the Proprio 5000 is not a “balance” device – it is much more. We have managed to develop and expand clinic specific protocols that are used in a very wide range of Pt types – from Ankle replacements to run of the mill ACL reconditioning to Geriatric balance retraining as part of Fall prevention programs. The quality of objective data obtained allows us additional tools when communication with Pt’s, MD’s and insurance carriers alike. Financially the device has more than paid for itself. If marketed and utilized well – this can truly be used to build your business."

“The first time we were exposed to the Proprio 5000 we thought…interesting concept, but could we achieve the same outcomes a different way? We ultimately decided to give it a try. The Proprio 5000 is the first piece of equipment that we have brought into our department that was used by every therapist. Our ultimate decision to purchase came when I was sought out by several different patients to thank me for having this equipment here. They felt it enhanced their recovery and were pleased that we were able to offer state-of-the-art treatment options.”

“Since I don’t have knees anymore I have to get used to walking from my hips. At Christmas time, I got my prosthetic legs. It’s like walking on stilts; you have to think through every step you take. The Proprio 5000 helps you learn to balance on a platform that moves in every direction. Without it, I wouldn’t be walking. Now I’ve graduated to stairs and hills, but the rehabilitation center could help me and others so much more with this one piece of rehab equipment.”

"I have Menieres. It is an inner ear affliction that causes my ears to feel full and of course made me nauseous. Eventually I found a therapist that specialized in dizziness. I was working with her with some results, but I was making slow progress. Then my therapist referred me to a study going on using the Proprio. I noticed the sessions were no longer making me sick, in fact they started to be fun, but the best thing was that I felt tremendously better overall. It has now been several months since I finished my treatments. My nausea is gone along with the neck aches and headaches."
