OUR STORY Hindi

 

Therex Portal is developed out of a personal life experience. A few years ago, when the founder’s mother was prescribed vestibular therapy by a neurologist, there were very few therapists who are proficient with the evaluation and treatment of vestibular dizziness within reach.

Further when the founder tried to clinically provide advice and consultation to her mother long distance, there are no applications that had the ability to customize instructions in native Indian languages and demonstrate exercises with clarity.

The founder Asha J Gummadi, realized the need to bridge the gap and improve quality of physical therapy rehab by developing Therex Portal.

Therex Portal is the result of 5 years of meticulous hard work from an entire team of clinical advisors, 3D animators, 3D artists, videographers, professional medical translators, and technology developers.

It improves the therapist confidence by offering a detailed database of condition specific impairments to sort from. Therex Portal further enhances patient care with the ability to  customize instructions and  exercises to patient's specific physical ability and comprehension level, making learning a breeze.

Story Behind

Therex PortAL

Therex Portal is developed to address the need of lack of continuity of care at home after a physiotherapists session. Patient’s forget the exercises learnt in the clinic and practice exercises incorrectly leading to injury and poor outcomes. Also, a few applications that address this need have instructions restricted to English or other western languages.

Patients in India, Asia and Middle East countries who speak other languages lack clear understanding of the exercises due to incorrect interpretation of the instructions and unclear pictures. In addition, there is a knowledge gap, due to lack of information about health condition in general population. Therapists spend a great deal of time explaining patients about their health condition verbally and even so, lack of a review material adds frustration to either parties contributing to poor understanding and limited compliance.

Therex Portal has addressed all the above needs with a break through solution by creating custom made 3D models to visually explain the exercises in stunning 3D view with multiple angles, and add the unique ability to customize instructions in native languages both in content and calligraphy with our built-in software

Patients and Clinicians can review clinical education handouts and resources saving valuable time and improve their understanding of health conditions such that time is spent efficiently on hands on skills during the clinical session.

In countries where health care cost is spent out of pocket, sudden patient drop out is a huge problem to the therapists and patients. Supplementing Therex portal © with clinical practice, assists patients see the therapist for a longer duration of time spreading their financial resources and treatment sessions to 3/ week and achieve complete recovery.

Mary has been a practicing physical therapist since 1974, assessing and treating patients with both orthopedic and neurological diagnoses.  She received her BS in biology in 1971 from Chestnut Hill College, Philadelphia, PA, her BS in physical therapy in 1974 from Temple University, Philadelphia, PA and her MEd in Health with a Gerontology concentration from West Chester University, West Chester, PA.

YOGA AS A MODALITY TO IMPROVE BALANCE

Yoga asanas can be used to enhance balance, strength, stability as well as flexibility.  There are many asanas that provide challenges to balance while also training stability and strength in the body.  Yoga breathing and focus on the moment can bring the patient increased awareness of the body in space which also can improve proprioceptive feedback and enhance balance. Yoga asanas can be modified so than anyone can perform them safely and receive their benefit.  When asanas are linked together into a flow, the practice can become like a dance which makes the practice fun and enjoyable.
