Neurac method is a treatment that aims to restore functional and pain-free movement patterns through high levels of neuromuscular stimulation. The Neurac treatment focuses on muscle interaction and the cause of the problems, not just the symptoms.
Neurac method is founded on up-to-date research and long-standing scientific principles that recommend the use of closed chain exercise for managing neuromuscular skeletal problems and enhancing function.
Neurac is an active treatment approach consisting of four main elements:
1. Suspension exercise
2. Controlled vibration/perturbation to selected body parts
3. Workload, specific and gradual exercise progression
4. A pain-free approach
The aim of the Neurac method is to restore pain-free movement patterns and improve function. Neurac treatment challenges the interplay between muscles and focuses on what is causing the problem – not only on the symptoms.
Redcord workstation professional
The Redcord Workstation Professional, with the triple traverse system and Redcord AXIS, enables the full range of Neurac treatment, including full-body weight-bearing positions. Neurac treatment restores optimal and pain-free movement patterns through neuromuscular stimulation.
A new and improved vibration model with even more options. Benefits of the new features:
Vibration may enhance muscle activation and is documented as most efficient in the frequency range between 30-50 Hz. Redcord Stimula+ can now offer this range of vibration frequencies with all energy levels.
Modulation of pain has been proven effective with higher levels of vibration frequencies. Redcord Stimula+ has a wider range of higher frequencies with different energy levels. This gives the therapist more and better options for pain management.
Random vibration mode
The neuromuscular system can over time adapt to proprioceptive input, such as vibration. This may result in decreased effect of vibratory stimulation. A random vibration mode with varying and unpredictable vibration patterns will reduce the likelihood of the neuromuscular system getting accustomed to a certain vibration frequency. Redcord Stimula+ has several programs and options for applying random vibration with different energy levels and different frequency ranges. The Redcord Stimula+ makes Neurac treatment even more effective. It provides faster recovery and better results in the treatment of:
dysfunctional muscular control
pain conditions in the musculoskeletal apparatus
functional disorders of the neck, back, pelvis and shoulder regions
The treatment is carried out in body weight-bearing positions and is a part of the Neurac treatment. Redcord Stimula+ sends vibrations through the ropes in Redcord Workstation Professional. The vibration is applied to selected body areas and the dosage is controlled by adjusting the frequency, energy level, vibration pattern and treatment time. We strongly recommend taking the Neurac 2 Stimula course before you start using the Redcord Stimula+.
There is evidence that vibration:
increases proprioceptive input
increases the activation of muscles
increases muscle strength
Redcord Stimula+ is a result of many years of development, clinical and systematical testing and re-testing. The vibration tool is already an irreplaceable device used daily in several Redcord Clinics. Clinical experience has shown Redcord Stimula to be an even more efficient and important part of Neurac treatment than first assumed, and has demonstrated great treatment results.
Redcord Axis is a revolutionary exercise device that takes suspension exercise to a whole new level. It introduces rotational movements, creating the potential for a large number of new functional exercises, progressions and variations.
Correct anatomical movements
Redcord Axis gives you more opportunities compared to traditional suspension exercises. By adding rotation, Axis increases the degree of instability further, making the well-known traditional exercises more challenging.
“This instability must be balanced in the rotation system, which requires good movement control. Many of these movements may be very difficult or even impossible to perform in a normal suspension training system,” says physiotherapist and head of the Research and Development Department in Redcord, Øyvind Pedersen.
Axis is designed to withstand heavy loads with minimal resistance and noise from the apparatus. The rotation takes place through two separate rollers instead of one, which gives anatomically and technically correct execution of the movements.
“A versatile training tool”
Training with rotating movements is of great importance for physical therapists, personal trainers and ordinary people wanting to improve physical function. This makes Axis a versatile training tool.
“For the fitness and sports segment, Axis will be a great tool both to mimic sport-specific movements and to stimulate optimal motion control. Personal trainers will be able to instruct their clients in a new level of corrective exercises, and physical therapists will find Axis to be a useful tool to provide equal weighting between the healthy and damaged side,” says Pedersen.
Redcord has already implemented rotation as a subject in both Neurac courses (medical) and Active Multi-Suspension courses, where participants are introduced to tandem training. As a training tool, Redcord Axis will appeal to the experienced exercisers or athletes who want to train in an unstable environment.
Improve physical function
Clinical experience and proven knowledge have shown how Redcord suspension exercises can improve physical function. In combination with the Redcord Trainer and Redcord Mini, the Redcord Axis gives you the opportunity to train your entire body in an even more effective and varied way.
“With its distinctive characteristics, Redcord Axis will help to lift this even a step further,” says Pedersen.
