Under the guidance of Bill Bergman, PhD, MedX rehabilitative exercise equipment is suitable for all ages and levels of fitness from those overcoming injuries to the elite athlete. MedX is scientifically proven equipment designed by Arthur Jones, founder of Nautilus in 1986. His quest was to perfect medical equipment for testing human strength, endurance and range of motion. MedX now offers the highest-quality fitness, sports and medical/rehabilitation equipment in the world.
With ARRAY, each topic presented at a MEDX Regional Conference culminates in thorough analytics using multiple criteria and measurement techniques. Analytics are designed to accurately assess participant engagement, changes in participant knowledge, competence, and performance, while helping to identify needs, gaps, and barriers that can be addressed in future CME activities.
The MedX Lumbar and Cervical Extension Machines have been clinically proven to be extremely effective in the treatment of chronic back and neck pain. Before MedX was introduced to the medical community there was never an effective way to isolate and strengthen the muscles of the spine. These machines provide the medical community with the first tools capable of producing specific and accurate testing of functional spinal strength, and the additional capability of providing the best source of rehabilitative exercise.
“Arthur Jones is not a real Republican — he is a Nazi whose disgusting, bigoted views have no place in our nation’s discourse,” Tim Schneider, the Illinois Republican Party chairman, said in a statement. He said the party had urged voters “to skip over his name when they go to the polls” and moving forward planned on “vehemently opposing Jones with real campaign dollars.”
For decades Arthur was acutely aware of the shortcomings of using a barbell. His Eureka! moment came in the dead of night in the late 60s when he was living in Africa. He got out of bed, designed and ordered a part over the phone. When it was installed in the exercise machine the next day, it failed. But the reason it failed revealed what was needed - the cam. Using a computer, he designed each individual cam profile. The cam makes it possible instantly and automatically, to vary the resistance properly during exercise. The cam is the heart of each Nautilus machine... machines that were "so close to being perfect that any slightest imperfection is of no practical importance."
MedX allows you to set weight increments by 2 pounds, instead of five to ten pound increments. The method of strength training that we use at Vertex Fitness requires that you fatigue the muscle within 50-70 seconds, and not over a long period of time. If you increase the weight by too much, the muscle may fatigue too fast. If you cannot increase the weight because you must wait for a ten pound increment, the workout will not be as effective.
Greg was raised in Price, UT. He completed his undergraduate degree in human biology at BYU-Provo in 1997 and his doctor of physical therapy degree (DPT) from Creighton University in Omaha, NE in 2000. Greg and his wife, Viki, are the proud parents of 7 children and finds that with what free time they have is spent exploring Eastern Idaho together as a family.
The foundation of our rehabilitation is the MedX medical spinal testing and rehabilitation machines. Rehabilitation providers around the world have experienced amazing results using the MedX lumbar and cervical extension machines. Medical evidence shows that 80% of chronic spinal pain is due to muscle weakness, which increases as damage to the spine worsens. Weakness of the spine can lead to many conditions such as herniated discs, facet syndrome, and degenerative joint disease. A strong healthy spine provides a strong foundation which helps prevent spinal compression and allows you to perform your normal daily activities and demands of employment pain free.
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.
