Hamstring Flexibility Improves After Massage Treatment, MASSAGE MagazineAKRON, Ohio–Performance Health, a leader in rehabilitation, fitness and wellness products, today announced the relaunch of PerformanceHealthAcademy.com, formerly TheraBandAcademy.com. This free and enhanced U.S.-audience site provides users with improved functionality and enhanced features. In addition to focusing on TheraBand, the Academy will now begin to offer resources for Performance Health’s growing portfolio of interconnected brands, including Active Ankle® braces, Biofreeze® pain reliever, Bon Vital’® massage topicals, Cramer® sports medicine, and Thera°Pearl® hot/cold wraps. To avoid confusion, the website will reference both Performance Health Academy and TheraBand Academy during the transition.

The Academy website is a unique resource that connects health care professionals and consumers to the ever-growing body of knowledge on exercise, research and techniques related to Performance Health products. Registration is free and, in addition to the new content, the site continues to provide access to the largest database of TheraBand exercises, protocols, research and education in the world.

“The Academy warehouses the evidence to support clinically-proven Performance Health products. The site’s content, which is provided and reviewed by health care professionals and researchers, adds value to the patient/health care provider relationship and encourages connectivity and communication,” stated Phil Page, Ph.D., P.T., A.T.C., C.S.C.S., F.A.C.S.M., global director of clinical education and research for Performance Health. “In addition to accessing research, professionals can use the site to create customized exercise programs that can be printed or emailed to their patients and clients. With almost 2,000 references and over 800 exercises available, there is truly not another resource like this.”

PerformanceHealthAcademy.com has been enhanced as outlined below. You can watch a demonstration video at performancehealthacademy.com.

  • By adding a functional activity drop-down menu (called Function) to the exercise search tool, users can more easily locate an exercise by searching common movements.
  • By adding a Techniques tab to the home page, users can easily find clinical techniques, such as those for kinesiology tape.
  • By including techniques to the exercise program building and printing capability, patients now have a fuller set of tools and instructions to take home.
  • By adding an Evidence Based Practice search category to the research tab, users can filter for specific research that supports the use of Performance Health products.
