At Fitness for Health, we provide fitness, therapeutic programs, weight management services for children including those with sensory, attention and or developmental delays. Therefore, we are challenged to find creative and innovative techniques to improve visual/spatial awareness, recognition/cognition, motor skills, cardiac endurance and to build self esteem –the TRAZERs in our gym accomplish all this and more.
TRAZER is used to design exercise programs for our clients and customize goals. It is a key component in our assessments. We also incorporate TRAZER to measure increases in visual and spatial awareness, coordination and enhanced reaction times. TRAZER has been instrumental in our ability to measure progress of our programming since it has measurable outcomes, memory and report capabilities.
I initially thought TRAZER would work best (or only) with a younger patient. This does not appear to be the case. It works equally well across the lifespan. I have not found an age population that TRAZER does not work with . . . the TRAZER system has brought a lot of excitement to the clinic. Most importantly, it makes the rehabilitative process fun – ultimately increasing compliance which is critical for success.
We’ve used TRAZER for all lower quarter pathologies regardless of severity, type, or age of patient. We’ve also used TRAZER for shoulder and lumbar spine patients with success. In a clinical study of ACL patients, we found that those who rehabbed on TRAZER came back faster and more completely than those who did not.
"TRAZER…provides injured people with a faster transition back to pre-injury routine, whether that routine involves tennis, basketball, football or simply walking around."
"TRAZER’s 3-dimensional exercise summons the entire body into action. It’s game-like exercise that involves the mind while training all the muscle groups in a coordinated manner. Hence its ability to burn calories at an unprecedented rate."
"As a fighter pilot, I am always looking for ways to increase my flexibility and hand-eye coordination while I’m working out….As the TRAZER workout began, I felt engaged and could feel that it was testing my reaction time, hand-eye coordination and mind-body connection. After half an hour on the TRAZER I felt like I had been on a treadmill for more than an hour. Also, I didn’t have to add on separate balance and hand-eye coordination exercises since they had already been done during my TRAZER workout. Another huge benefit…was being able to get instant feedback on my reaction time and build a set of goals to work towards. I was also able to analyze my heart rate throughout the workout and keep it at an ideal state for increasing my endurance. I highly recommend TRAZER to anyone who wants to simultaneously increase their strength, endurance, and mind-body connection in one simple to use, exciting workout system."
"We are extremely excited about the multiple applications of TRAZER. Each program provides objective data that enables us to track an athlete’s progress & improvement. It is like having a “scoreboard” for rehabilitation. The athletes can see their progress & compete against each other in sports specific drills & games. The athletes also see the value in TRAZER and ask specifically to use it. I have no doubt that it will have a positive impact on our performance."

"Wadsworth High School and the SUMMA Healthcare network own a TRAZER Unit. The school board, parents, and athletic department take pride in being on the cutting edge of the concussion management to protect the lives and brains of our student athletes.” –Wadsworth, School Board Member
"I have seen the future of athlete development, and it is called the TRAZER sport simulator!"
Fort Bragg and Fort Campbell are both using TRAZER® to assist with vestibular rehabilitation for tbi. The lead vestibular therapist at Fort Campbell explained, ” We have found compliance is higher, enjoyment is greater and the results far outweigh other methodology in our military population. They look forward to the cognitive and physical challenges that TRAZER® presents while rehabilitating their tbi.”
