INDIBA® ACTIV regularly contributes to the practical training of students of the Blanquerna Physiotherapy Degree (Universitat Ramon Llull). As part of this collaboration, INDIBA® ACTIV recently joined the students and teachers who treated participants in the Trailwalker Oxfam, a solidarity march that seeks to raise donations to fight against poverty and hunger.
In this march, the health care is carried out by volunteer personnel and has mobile ambulance units, career doctor, chiropody service and physiotherapy in various controls. INDIBA® ACTIV helped, therefore, to alleviate the injuries inherent in the over-commitment of the participants, who cover a 100-kilometer route on foot over 32 uninterrupted hours.
In particular, INDIBA® ACTIV was present in two areas: at the Blanquerna stand located in the exit area of Trailwalker, in Olot (Girona), and next to the physiotherapy service team, at the control point in the city of Girona, 55 kilometers from the start line.
The students, who were volunteers of the Physiotherapy Degree were supervised during the whole service by a teacher and had an INDIBA® ACTIV device to treat the walkers.
As detailed from Blanquerna, in total, in the eighth and last edition, the physiotherapy service attended to “about 400 participants”, affected by “pain or overload of the triceps muscles sural and quadriceps.”
THE EFFECTIVENESS AND SPEED OF THE TREATMENT OF INDIBA® ACTIV
Salvi Delmuns, Professor of Physiotherapy at the Faculty of Health of Blanquerna, explained the methodology of physiotherapy service treatments within Trailwalker for Blanquerna: “Students and teachers treat participants through stretching, massage or inhibitory pressure techniques . That is, they are very effective and fast because the time they spend on the treatment table goes against their team of four participants, who will still have to walk all night to go the other half of the race. ”
The next Trailwalker solidarity march was held on May 19 and 20; a circular route through the Montes de Vitoria and the Ullibarrri-Ganboa reservoir in Vitoria (Euskadi) where INDIBA® ACTIV was also present to support the participants.
