Therapy options have vastly improved for Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, stroke, balance and other patients with physical challenges.   Most recently two new physical therapy centers imported from Switzerland a proven, technologically advanced, FDA approved medical device specifically designed to help people with movement disorders.  Successfully treating patients for over 20 years in Europe, the GIGERMD® medical device was designed by Adrian Giger out of the compassion and love for a family member suffering from the limitations brought on by MS.  What is so unique about the Swiss-made GIGERMD® medical device?  The medical GIGERMD® device offers a painless way to re-educate the muscles, adjust heart rate and/or activate other muscles with less than a pound of resistance.  

The GIGERMD® medical device also incorporates active biofeedback technology to provide audio-visual stimulation in combination with coordinated movements of the limbs.  This biofeedback portion can be used to train patients how to manage or change troublesome physical symptoms using a non-invasive process.  This is what makes the GIGERMD® medical device so unique; a physical and visual stimulus that directs a patient to maximize the benefits of therapy with minimal discomfort or resistance.   

An added advantage of the GIGERMD® medical device is that it records each session so progress is measured and available for review at the end of every session.   No other therapy or medical device in the US can offer a therapy patient so much and so easily. 

Patients have travelled from New Jersey, Boston, MA; Austin, TX and Naples, FL just to have a session with the GIGERMD® medical device.  Testimonies from patients treated on the GIGERMD® medical device include statements like, “it’s the best investment I have made in my healthcare “and “We both believe the equipment was beneficial for his overall physical therapy and was as responsible as the other exercises to his improved movements.”   

Florida currently has two locations offering the GIGERMD® medical device:

Avenue Therapy in the Piper Glen Plaza, 12040 Jog Road, Boynton Beach, Phone 561-733-5083

or at the GIGERMD® Movement Therapy Center, Shops of Boca Grove, 21065 Powerline Road, Boca Raton; Phone 561-883-7800.   

Call either location for more information or to set up a visit.  

Once you try the GIGERMD® medical device you will discover for yourself the changes that are possible.
