Physiotherapy equipment


Wobble Cushion

The wobble cushion can be used for weight bearing, strengthening and proprioception in rehabilitation patients or balance and conditioning in sporting patients.

Benefits of the wobble cushion:

  • Strengthen core musculature and limbs.
  • Improve weight bearing on a particular limb.
  • Neural stimulation.
  • Balance training.


Cavaletti Poles

Cavaletti poles can be used for rehabilitation and fitness. They work by re-educating the gait, encouraging even weight bearing and improved range of motion through proprioceptive input. The poles can be raised to increase the intensity of the exercise.

Benefits of poles:

  • Improve proprioception.
  • Maintain joint health.
  • Improve range of motion.
  • Improve weight bearing on a particular limb.


Laser therapy

Laser therapy is a non-invasive drug-free form of pain relief for chronic or acute pain. It also works to optimise the healing of a range of tissues by modulating inflammation and accelerating tissue regeneration on a cellular level.

Benefits of laser:

  • Pain relief.
  • Modulates inflammation.
  • Reduces muscle spasm.
  • Promotes tissue healing.
