The MR cube is one of the most versatile pieces of rehab equipment I have used. The MR cube allows the rehab professional the flexibility to bring functionality into all exercises. The type of exercises that can be performed while using the cube is only limited to your creativity. Dollar for dollar the MR cube is the best piece of rehab equipment we have bought because it allows us the flexibility and versatility that no other piece of equipment can offer. The combination of neuromuscular reeducation, strengthening and proprioception makes this piece of rehab equipment a valuable tool in our rehab program. The computer software allows for the injured athlete to rehab in a competitive environment thus making rehab fun.

I am very impressed with Monitored Rehab Systems Functional Squat. It allows us to initiate early rehabilitation safely and challenge athletes as they progress in their rehabilitation. The exercises provide a variety of methods to achieve both proprioceptive and neuro gains along with strength gains. The exercises are fun and challenging for our players. I believe it is beneficial in their recovery.

We have found that the Functional Squat unit allows us to provide closed chain eccentric work at varying speeds and ranges, better than anything that we have used to date. With our athletes having grown up in a "Pack Man" age, the unit brings out their gaming and competitive nature so that they are lining up to use it for both rehabilitation and strength

I wish to commend CDM Sport on their Monitored Rehab Systems Functional Squat machine. We are using the system with both our surgical and non-surgical patients and have found it extremely useful in our setting. The athletes have responded extremely well with the various exercise settings and different intensity levels. The Monitored Rehab Systems Functional Squat provides a safe and effective rehabilitative instrument; a new dimension in concentric / eccentric workloads rarely seen in other products. We are now incorporating the System in our off-season conditioning program for all of our players. Thank you again for introducing us to the Monitored Rehab Systems and we wish you much success in the future.

The Functional Squat system brings a new tool to the profession, whether you're in a normal training mode or working on rehabbing a player. The Functional Squat system allows you to add a number of new training protocols never seen in a traditional weight room or rehab clinic. The Functional Squat now allows us the ability to add muscular endurance, functional neuromuscular activities in a safe and user friendly training environment. I highly recommend this system to the profession and the rehabilitation community.

The Monitored Rehab Systems Functional Squat machine has been a perfect addition to my home gym. For rehabilitation on my right knee the Squat machine is ideal for training single leg exercises and comparing it to the non-involved leg. The programs are challenging and I can store all the data to know how my rehab is progressing. I can always change the exercise to make it easier or more difficult or vary it so that I can always do something different. What tops off the Functional Squat is its smooth motion and ease of use. It is the best machine I have ever used.

I have been using the Cable Column daily. I have used it with Lance Berkman, and many pro athletes, as well as non athletic patients. I have found that the Monitored Rehab Systems provides both proprioceptive and muscular fatigue that results in faster strength gains to the posterior cuff. After 4-5 sessions there is a definite improvement in the fine motor control which is a great benefit to stimulating the rotator cuff to control the humeral head. I use the 90/90 position with my shoulder patients, with the patient seated and their arm supported by a hospital type rolling table. I also have used the Cable Column with hip patients in the supine position on the floor that has been very beneficial.

The Monitored Rehab Systems Functional Squat is one of the most utilized pieces of equipment in our institute. It is utilized in both early rehabilitative and training management. With its use providing the earliest possible post operative management of the lower extremity with proximal dysfunction including lumbo pelvic pathology / spinal dysfunction, we are seeing significant increases in lower extremity balance, proprioception and strength in the lower extremities and more importantly a crossover effect into the unaffected extremity. We are utilizing it in advanced stages of rehab in conjunction with other functional training. Other than manual therapy I feel this is as effective as any other therapy or treatment system in early or late strengthening and stabilization programs for the lower quarter. Following utilization of this system for several weeks we are seeing a general and marked increase in functional capabilities from the geriatric patient to the professional athlete.

I am thrilled with the Monitored Rehab Systems Functional Squat that we have purchased. It is an integral part of our approach to proprioception and functional training.

The Monitored Rehab Systems Functional Squat device has become a required piece of equipment for lower extremity rehabilitation for my patients. While it is obvious that it builds isometric, eccentric and concentric strength it provides a more important role by offering neuromuscular training.

The Monitored Rehabilitation System Functional Squat has allowed us to challenge the athletes neuromuscularly at every stage of their rehabilitation.

We have found the MR Systems Functional Squat to be an extremely effective device in the evaluation, treatment and rehabilitation of lower extremity musculoskeletal pathology. Patients undergoing anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction benefit tremendously from the advanced technology of the Functional Squat. The parameters of evaluation and rehabilitation of MR Systems technology effectively match the overall guidelines of our ACL rehabilitation program and serve as a valuable adjunct to the success of our overall rehabilitation program.

The Monitored Rehab Systems Functional Squat is a very good piece for multiple angle strength training and we have found it very beneficial for training proprioception as well.

Not only does this device put FUN back into functional rehab, we have also found it to be extremely reliable and valid for data collection and research. Previously I would quantify motor control with time intensive EMG testing. Now I am able to get “better” information about function much more quickly.

The Monitored Rehabilitation System, including the Functional Squat & Cable Machine have been positive additions to our rehabilitation tool set. The athletes have found the system to be challenging and rewarding in strength gains, while at the same time offering variety and fun to their rehab programs.

The Monitored Rehab Systems Functional Squat has been an excellent training device for our athletes and non-athletes. While on the device, our clients are completely immersed in their training from a physical and mental standpoint. Gains in strength and lower body control are precisely measured making test/re-test reliability very high. We have had great success using the Functional Squat with athletes as young as 8 years old to 50+ years old!
