How Technology Is Transforming Sports Injury Rehabilitation

According to Kellmann et al. (2018) ”recovery is regarded as a multifaceted -physiological, psychological- restorative process relative to time”.

While some still manage recovery as a single entity, it has been increasingly recognised that recovery is a multi-faceted process involving several subsystems with different regeneration needs and different times for full restoration.

Today, the high demands of modern sport requires the necessary implementation of recovery strategies, and advancement in technologies have met those demands with means and devices that tackle sports injury rehabilitation from various angles.

Lymphatic System

One of the approaches focuses on tissue remodelling activity during the recovery process.

The lymphatic system has a fundamental role during exercise in order to regulate tissue volume and pressure by moving fluids and plasma back from the interstitial space to circulatory (cardiovascular) system (Lane, Worsley, Mckenzie, 2005).

As about 70% of our body’s fluid is in the lymphatic system, it is easy to understand why its function is of primary importance in restoring fluid balance.

With this theory as the basis, LymphaTouch is found to be helpful in facilitating better and faster recovery from injuries. Mechanical decompression (also called negative pressure) delivered by the device is able to stimulate lymphatic uptake and accelerate the evacuation of accumulated fluids.

As a method for daily muscle care and maintenance, Lymphatouch is a powerful tool in the hands of sports performance professionals as it allows, when used regularly, to promote regeneration and to avoid overuse and chronic damage.

Cognitive Motor Connectivity

Neuroscientists state that the benefits of training the brain and body simultaneously (dual-tasking) to enhance physical mobility and overall human performance have been clear for some time.

To demonstrate this, SMARTfit has taken another approach towards sports rehabilitation with its gamified dual-task assessment and training technology.

SMARTfit’s return-to-play sports rehab is a multi-sensory sports rehabilitation technology that engages visual, cognitive and motor components in one easy-to-use operating system to aid in therapy and recovery.

It provides quick access to hundreds of dual-tasking programs for assessment and treatment of people of all ages and performance levels.
