The physical therapy market is our longest and most successful market place. I can remember back in the late “70’s” we were actually asked to never exhibit at this convention again. The Total Gym was perceived as a gimmick and not a serious piece of physical rehabilitation equipment.
However over the years the market started to change and in the early to mid “80’s” there was a paradigm shift away from single joint “Iso Kinetic” machines to a more functional approach and a total body observation. With this shift Total Gym became the most versatile , functional, body weight equipment and can now be found in over 10,000 physical therapy locations in the USA alone.
I have always appreciated the true interest that physical therapists have in helping their patients to get back to normal function in their lifestyle. And I was excited once again to attend and visit with all the customers and friends we have meet over the last 35 years, as well as the next generation of upcoming physical therapists.
It was great seeing you all in San Diego!
Yours in good health,
