Fascination rehabilitation method.  This product development will have a lasting impact in many people's lives.  It would be interesting to know how they tune the vibrations to the right frequency for each patient.

Also a scary chair. Another example of how there needs to be more funding in the medical research. Instead, we get a deluge of feature dense smartphones.

Thank you for the information Aaron.  My father will be 92 this September and would greatly benefit from a chair such as this.  He is in assisted living and must use a walker due to significant decrease in muscle tone and strength.  He also has issues with circulation in his lower extremities.  This chair could be one treatment that produces greater muscle tone.  I am sending your article to "The Terrace Assisted Living" here in our town for them to take a look.  Again, many thanks.

Nice evolution of technology

It's nice to see technology developed for a very specific and narrow purpose evolve to something that can be a wider use to people. There is a lot of precedence for technology developed with the space program in mind to transition to use on earth as well. Thanks for the story.
