The majority of back problems are the result of functional imbalances and deficits of the torso sensomotor function. CTT CENTAUR identifies and treats these. With this device the global torso musculature can be specifically strengthened and its coordination trained. Furthermore, for the first time it is possible to directly train the local, deeper lying (autochthonic) muscles. CTT CENTAUR works on the basis of the following active principles:

  • Through a coordinated tilt of the body, the torso needs to be stabilized against gravity
  • Through tilting and rotation the body is put into an instable position so that the balance analyser sends impulses to the deeper lying muscles
  • Through an upright posture during the training, the muscles are strengthened in the position in which they have to do the most supporting work
  • Through a precisely reproducible application of strain a targeted and exactly documentable therapy and training becomes possible

Effective Prevention, rehabilitation and training with CTT CENTAUR:

  • Three-dimensional computer-supported training for the muscles of the lumbar spine segment including those on the side and the stomach muscles
  • Determination of neuromuscular imbalances and deficits in the lumbar spine segment
  • Targeted training to eradicate existing neuromuscular imbalances and deficits
  • Conditioning of the musculature as precondition of the general stabilising of the back and as basis for any further training
  • Controlled activation of the autochthonic back musculature, initiated through instrumental proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF)
  • Neuromuscular training through activating the balance analyser
  • Functional training through synergetic demand on the balance analyser and the sensomotor systems of the lumbar, thoracic and cervical spine motor function
  • Cardio-pulmonary training through straining and relieving the blood vessels in tilt
  • Isokinetic training device
  • Networking of the device and storage of data for an efficient execution of tests and training
