Origins of Dolphin Therapy:
For decades the US Navy has trained Dolphins to undertake underwater reconnaissance. When transported out of water, Dolphins started to die. Post-mortem examinations identified the cause of death as circulatory distress due to internal organ trauma; crushing type injuries which were the result of gravity exerting pressure and vertical shear force on the mammals’ internal tissues and organs.
US Naval engineers set about developing a support system that could recreate buoyancy during transportation, recreating the Dolphin’s natural state. The technology has now been released for commercial application and Medstrom are proud to deliver this technology to patients in the acute and community sectors.
Tissue symmetry is maintained, meaning tissues are not squashed or distorted.
Vascular occlusion is minimised, maintaining near normal blood flow.
Tissue ischemia is prevented, even when the patient is nursed directly on the affected area.
2,000+ UK & Ireland positive clinical patient outcomes achieved.
