What are Parallel Bars? Unlike their counterparts used in gymnastics, physical therapy parallel bars are more specifically utilized for physical rehabilitation after injury, disease and surgery, while they are also used for various kinds of disabilities, as well. They can range in construction from more permanent types for clinical use to foldable, portable types for traveling therapy practices. Most are adjustable in width, while others additionally offer height adjustability. They may be powered electrically, by battery, or with manual adjusting capabilities. All of the parallel bars we offer are durably constructed to ensure long-lasting and secured usage, even in the highest traffic therapy centers. Bariatric models accommodate higher user weights, and multiple design options ensure the perfect fit for your own unique patient therapy needs, or for those of your therapy practice. As one of the most widely used pieces of physical or occupational therapy equipment, parallel bars have a vast range of applications. But they are usually utilized most for walking and gait-training, providing support for those re-learning to walk again, and regain the use of their legs. Whether the cause is a leg injury, muscle atrophy from prolonged bed confinement, post-surgery, nerve damage, or from other conditions or disabilities, therapy that includes parallel bars will almost always be in order for recovery. Therapy parallel bars are available in several styles, including platform-mounted, wall-mounted and floor-mounted attaching preferences. Portable, folding designs are well suited for travel, while several wall-mounted styles additionally highlight this feature for space-saving in smaller areas. Most parallel bars offer the ability to adjust in width, with many models offering height adjustability, as well. A number of styles offer electrical or battery powered adjusting features for ease of use. How are Parallel Bars Used? As a vital piece of equipment used in the physical, occupational and rehabilitation fields of therapy, parallel bars figure prominently in the successful recovery from illnesses, disease, injuries, surgery and other debilitating conditions. For Overall Conditioning and Strength—therapy parallel bars are often used for patients who have been confined to a bed or wheelchair for extended periods of time. General conditioning exercises are performed with the support of the parallel bars, and may include specified muscle strengthening movements, range of motion activities, and some ambulatory exercises. Aside from the benefits for the legs and the reversal of muscle atrophy, overall conditioning therapies also target and increase heart and lung function, and boost the circulation. For Coordination, and for Changes in Physical Abilities—often prescribed to help people recover from stroke or brain trauma, parallel bars are a great tool for coordination exercises. Because balance and coordination are often adversely affected by these kinds of issues, task-oriented procedures and concise movements performed with parallel bars help users to regain or attain these important physical attributes. This kind of therapy is also appropriate for those with chronic, debilitating conditions such as arthritis, multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis and other chronic illness problems. People who have developed weaknesses, dizziness, spasticity, and challenges with cognition, coordination, vision and balance may all find help with therapy parallel bars. For Ambulation and Gait Training—therapy parallel bars are often utilized to help patients relearn how to walk again after trauma, injury or disease, or to learn how to walk for the very first time. When the legs, brain or spine has been injured, preparing to walk again can be quite a monumental task, one that can seem insurmountable. But taking the journey in small steps, so to speak, includes using therapy parallel bars at first to help improve or develop range of motion, while addressing atrophied muscles. This supported therapy helps recovering patients to become more confident about then moving on to other mobility aids, such as crutches, canes and walkers. Rehabmart is pleased to offer a comprehensive selection of superior quality parallel bars from credentialed and renowned vendors that include Clinton Industries, Bailey Manufacturing Company, Hausmann Industries, Clarke Healthcare, Merry Walker, Armedica Manufacturing, and Sammons Preston.
