The Raptor is the answer to minimizing treatment time, while maximizing treatment efficiency. It’s a class 1 medical device and is best used for increasing range of motion, breaking up scar tissue, and facilitating myofascial release. This device enhances and accelerates therapeutic recovery in sports medicine, post-operative recovery and general physical rehabilitation. Its rapid mechanical percussions penetrate several layers of muscle with up to 3600 percussions per minute!
The benefit of using the Raptor as opposed to other forms of traditional treatments is that it does not engage Inflammatory Response (IR) whereas Manual Therapy causes an inflammatory response. To further explain, anytime a therapy creates pain, it sends a message to the brain, the brain sends reinforcement in the form of fluid, i.e. and inflammatory response. But this way of treatment bypasses IR because it is a pain free treatment that facilitates immediate myofascial release. This product can provide immediate relief and instant gratification, which can lead to a faster recovery.
Percussion Therapy not only engages the surface, but penetrates through all layers of muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Percussion therapy even breaks up scar tissue into little pieces allowing the body to metabolize the excess. The Raptor is best for: Back, Arms, Glutes, and Leg muscles… the bigger the muscle the better it feels! It offers 6 levels which are adjustable depending on which muscle group you plan to focus on.
