Inovo Medical is helping our Canadian athletes

 

Hockey player on skating ice with puckSports regenerative medicine is not easily accessible in Canada presently, and many athletes travel to the United States to get accelerated healing treatments such as the ones we offer (stem cell therapy in particular).  To further accelerate the healing process, athletes at Inovo Medical also have access to a team of athletic rehabilitation professionals, and cutting-edge technology, such as the Alter-G: an anti-gravity treadmill that reduces the recovery time. In the event of a concussion, our team of professionals can help. A team-based approach is used to determine the severity of the concussion and to treat its symptoms. This is yet another way that we help our athletes get back on their feet.. or skates (whichever the case).

Not only do we help athletes recover from sports injuries, we also help athletes optimize their performance by improving their movements with the help of our optical motion capture system (3D analysis). We also create custom foot orthotics that can fit high performance, lightweight soccer shoes, skates or cleats.

Optical Motion Capture device for 3D posture analysisPerformance Optimization

Analyzing body motion is sports is crucial to improving your performance, avoiding injuries and maximizing your comfort. On account of the aforementioned, having the right data is vital: the trainer, fitter, or specialist requires abundant, detailed information in order to assess the athlete’s performance and provide valuable advice. This assessment is particularly useful after an injury or during a recovery period. We help athletes improve their performance with the help of our 3D optical motion capture system. 3D imaging allows us to rapidly identify the source of the problem. After we have conducted an overall analysis of your feet and their motion mechanics, we can offer you curative treatments as well as prescribe foot orthotics adapted to your needs. We can make them fit your high performance, lightweight soccer shoes, skates or cleats.


Concussion clinic

The vestibular system is located deep inside your inner ear and is largely responsible for sensing motion and the body’s position relative to gravity. Rehabilitation of the neck and vestibular system has been demonstrated as key components to an optimized recovery plan for post-concussion syndrome. A team-based approach will optimize both safety and outcomes for the sufferers of a concussion.
