Provides resistance over a full range of isolated lumbar and cervical motion, or over a selected limited range. Isometric testing may occur every 3° within a patient’s range of motion MedX software plots a strength curve to compare the patient’s strength and range of motion to established norms. Stored energy can be assessed and factored out at each angle tested. Needs new software.

Additional publications included the results of Jones's studies on the differing responses of muscular structures exposed to varying amounts of exercise throughout limited and unlimited range of motion. Jones labeled these responses as type S response for specific and type G for general. He was among the first researchers to experiment with exclusively eccentric training on test subjects and among the first to suggest the superiority and importance of eccentric training for strength. He was the inventor of infimetric and akinetic exercise equipment. He was the first exercise machine designer to utilize cams, as opposed to pulleys, in exercise machines, making possible for the first time resistance that varied along the force curves generated by human muscular structures.
The MedX Lumbar Extension Machine has been extensively researched and studied at the University of Florida. Tests show remarkable increases in lasting strength with the use of this equipment. In fact, recently published scientific research dramatically validates the efficacy of MedX rehabilitation of chronic low back pain. A study published in the January 1999 edition of the Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation showed that 35 or 38 patients recommended for spinal surgery were able to forego the surgery following 21 MedX sessions over a 10 to 12-week span. Although the study does not prove that increased strength prevents surgery, it does suggest that certain people can avoid surgery with proper spinal exercise therapy.
As an exercised based rehabilitation specialist, Paul employs manual techniques such as myofascial release and soft tissue and joint mobilizations to help restore normal rhythm and balance to affected joints and promote improved mobility. The evidence based approach at Modern Rehab allows Paul and others to move forward with confidence that the treatment administered is the standard of practice, not only here in Idaho, but across the country.
"I've been broke more times than I care to count and I still made the Forbes Fortune list of the 400 richest by the mid-1980s. When I sold Nautilus Sports/Medical Industries in 1986, I owned a large farm located north of Ocala, Florida. The 350 acres of prime real estate housed the largest privately owned airport. including three Boeing 707 airliners and the largest exclusively owned collection of exotic wild animals. My menagerie consisted of 100 African Elephants, 4,000 crocodilians, three albino rhinos and Micky, my 400 pound pet gorilla."
Jones won the party's nomination in March when he ran unopposed for an open seat in Illinois' Third Congressional District. The Republican Party failed to put up a candidate to run against Jones, believing the heavily Democratic district to be unwinnable. Jones will be facing incumbent Representative Dan Lipinksi in the general election this fall.
Brian is an avid believer in physical therapy and the value that it can have in improving the health and well-being of our society. Helping others reach their personal goals with regards to their daily function is his primary goal each and every day. Playing sports such as softball, basketball, and racquetball are his favorite past times, as well as rooting on the Utah Jazz. He is blessed every day by the support of his wonderful wife Nicole and their three beautiful children.
As a plastic surgeon operating a clinic, I have found that MEDX has been an invaluable and affordable tool in today's practice of medicine. It has allowed my practice to be HIPAA-compliant while at the same time, enhanced the care that I provide to my patients. I can safely access my patients photographs, communicate with other physicians, and securely transfer large documents. Not only does this give me the peace of mind knowing that I am HIPAA-compliant, but also allows me to deliver better care to my patients. MEDX is also designed by physicians, nurses and ancillary healthcare staff, which was a big selling point for my clinic. When you use MEDX you can tell its designed for us.
MedX rehabilitation machines are precisely adjusted to each individual patient during the first therapy session. The back or neck muscles are gradually strengthened leading to long- term success for the patient. There are many devices and exercises which claim to strengthen the spine, but they have been disproved with scientific testing. The precision and isolation of MedX rehabilitation makes it far superior to conventional rehabilitation methods.
After high school, Korey attended Pacific University of Oregon. He played collegiate baseball as a catcher and outfielder. He received his Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science with an emphasis in Integrated Physiology. Korey started at RehabAuthority shortly after graduation, working as a physical therapy technician. Gaining this knowledge and experience inspired him to further his studies in physical therapy. He attended and graduated from Carrington College Boise with an associate degree in Physical Therapy Assisting. In addition, he scored a 100% on his National physical therapy exam! He started working at the Homedale clinic in July of 2016.
A neo-Nazi, Jones appears in a photo captioned: "Jones was a guest speaker at the event organized by the Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, based in North Carolina"; the image is in a slideshow on his own official candidate website. The same slideshow has another image (captioned "Arthur Jones speaking in Harrisburg Penn., on November 5, 2016") showing him among black-clothed men who hold a National Socialist Movement banner and carry shields marked with the neo-Nazi circle-cross emblem. The same slideshow has an image showing Jones speaking amid Aryan Nations emblems (caption: "Art Jones speaking at the Aryan Nations 2014 World Congress in Converse, La.")
