HANDS PROis a group of tools for tissue manipulation in physiotherapy, created by the Physiotherapists: Prof. Alex Silva García y Prof. Daniel Dulanto Domenack.
Towards the year 2014 Professor Alex Silva starts the search for a tool as an alternative to work the soft tissue of patients (muscles, fascias, ligaments, etc.), this in response to the need to reduce the load on the hands that came taking for daily work.
For years he worked with different tools, which allowed him to experience that the smaller and thinner the tools, the more muscular load in the musculoskeletal system of the Physiotherapist’s hand, he found that there were no ergonomic tools for soft tissue work and the few that there were too expensive.
In the following years 2015 and 2016 the Prof. Daniel Dulanto joins the project, with whom they start the design and structuring work of the new tools and concepts for the work with the HANDS PRO tools.
The design of the tools was done with mechanical engineers, then it was tested in patients to see the adaptability of each part of the tool, verifying that it is completely anatomical..
3 tools and 3 techniques were developed
