“The therapeutic potential of RSQ1 is unique. This device communicates with the neuromuscular system, stimulating it’s efficiency, especially in the one with a deficit condition. This allows a correction of the various inhibitory patterns, which could be created by an injury, without causing structural damage. Obviously, following the appropriate protocols is necessary, together with the individual response parameters of the athlete.
This combination makes it possible to start strength training in the rehabilitation also in the early post-injury phase, which has a clear advantage in prognosis in terms of prevention of recurrences.
In my experience, I experienced great benefits in both rehabilitation from muscle injuries and muscle strengthening, where classic rehabilitation show difficulties, as in serious chondropathies. The use of the RSQ1 doesn’t replace the classic rehabilitation program, but completes it with better results in terms of speed and efficiency of the program.
