ASMI Device Could Help Millions Who Suffer From Back Pain Associated With Spinal Immobility

FDAOn August 31, 2005 Advanced Therapy Systems LLC (ATS) revolutionary physical therapy device, the Advanced Spinal Mobilization Instrument (ASMI) has received FDA marketing and treatment clearance.

The patented ASMI device, comprised of a control console and practitioner held handset roughly the size of a computer mouse, is the central component of a novel, non-invasive therapeutic procedure. The device is designed for use by physical therapists to help restore spinal flexibility and mobility to patients suffering from back pain associated with spinal immobility.

The Advanced Spinal Mobilization Instrument was invented by British engineer Robert Taylor and introduced in the U.K., where it received glowing reviews in the London press. Ben Hunt, a journalist for the Financial Times, wrote of his personal experience with back pain and the ASMI device: “Now if 15 years of pain teaches you anything it is a healthy dose of skepticism about new treatments.” After treatment with the device, he wrote, “I feel 100% better and my skepticism has disappeared…”

The Advanced Spinal Mobilization Instrument truly empowers the physical therapist to be able to deliver safe and effective therapy to their patients suffering from back pain associated with spinal immobility.
