David Shoulder Solution

The David Shoulder Solution revolutionizes the treatment of shoulder pain by using biomechanically optimized movements and a visual biofeedback system for guidance. Shoulder problems cause the most sick leaves of any musculoskeletal illnesses (15 days on average). Shoulder pain is the most common musculoskeletal disorder within people over 65 years (Taylor, 2005) and its prevalence has tripled in the course of 40 years (Harkness, 2005). Every second person will suffer from shoulder pain during their lifetime.

The David Shoulder Solution suits patients suffering from prolonged (sub-acute or chronic), recurrent, post-operative, or post-traumatic shoulder problems. Problems such as poor posture, frozen shoulder, rotator cuff disorders, shoulder instability, acromioclavicular joint disorders, and osteoarthritis in the shoulder joints are also suitable for rehabilitation through our exercise therapy solution.

Pure Isolation

With the David Shoulder Solution, internal and external rotators of the shoulder joint along with the scapular stabilizers can be activated safely and efficiently. Optimal joint angles and a supportive movement arm isolate the activation precisely to the desired muscles.

The optimal fixation and joint-specific loading curves isolate the target muscles accurately.

Pure isolation is essential, or else stronger internal rotators, like the pectoralis major, will do the work. When rehabilitating sore shoulders, a carefully designed resistance curve is absolutely crucial in order to perform the exercise in a controlled manner. In each device, a computer terminal guides and motivates the patients to follow exactly the given parameters prescribed in their individualized programs.

Parameters include e.g. selected movements, adjustments, loading, range of motion, repetitions, movement speed, progression, session numbers and frequencies. These parameters are automatically designed and fine-tuned with the use of the cloud-based software and patients get immediate feedback on their compliance level.

''It is important that the muscles around the shoulder joint and rotator cuff are trained with the right intensity and range of motion. The DAVID shoulder devices allow the intensity to be evenly distributed over the full range of motion, which benefits the safety and quality of exercise and ultimately the treatment outcome.''

David Shoulder Solution is a comprehensive rehabilitation and strengthening system for the shoulder. It consists of exercises that focus on stabilizing the scapulothoracic and scapulohumeral joints while promoting a proper scapulohumeral rhythm. Priority is placed on shoulder exercises that inhibit upper trapezius activation, also in specific rotator cuff exercises. Biomechanically optimal joint angles make exercises safe, effective and highly targeted.
