Qbi grabs the attention of your physiotherapy clients
Qbi grabs your attention and focus in a fun way. Through this interaction, attention is focused on moving the ball in the right direction with the body. ‘People subconsciously seek the limits of their ability to move.’ As a result, pain quickly subsides. This makes Qbi an effective tool and offers you plenty of application possibilities within physiotherapy.
Qbi helps to get and keep clients moving
As a physiotherapist, you are an expert in posture and movement. One of the challenges with many chronic and acute conditions is getting and keeping clients active. As we know, exercise has innumerable health benefits. Qbi is an excellent tool to make exercising more fun and enjoyable, and enjoyment is the best way to motivate clients to literally and figuratively get active and stay active.
Many disorders can affect clients on a functional, physical, and participatory level. Qbi can help to improve functionality in such a way that clients can resume their normal activities and participate more actively.
With Qbi more active in life
‘As an occupational therapist, I mainly work with clients who have Parkinson’s disease. Given their limited movement, their world becomes increasingly smaller. I use Qbi to try and expand this world and improve their ability to carry out everyday tasks. Thanks to the game element and to moving the ball without touching it, I can shift the focus to more expansive arm movements, which can help them in everyday situations, such as turning over in bed. Qbi stimulates physical movement, which helps. My clients love it and they benefit from it. I can’t think of any other device that can do this.’
