Rapid City, SD — Synthetic sports surfacing is ideal for physical therapy facilities due to its aesthetic appeal and numerous safety benefits. When the physical therapists and orthopedic doctors at Black Hills Orthopedic & Spine Center upgraded their clinic, they hired SYNLawn Mountain West South Dakota to create and install custom turf.
Designing Custom Surfacing for Physical Therapy
The team from SYNLawn Mountain West was asked to design custom surfacing, creating a soft and durable space for recovering patients to do their physical therapy exercises. During the design process, the team had to ensure that all measurements and drills aligned with the medical requirements. The custom designed inlaid prefabricated turf needed to incorporate speed and agility ladders, change direction drills, star drills with improvement rulers, field hash marks, and dot drills. The team also added a base layer for the exercise area’s future expansion.
To create the custom installation, the SYNLawn South Dakota team used a combination of green, red, black, and white colored turf rolls of SYNPlay 48 with Pad.
Using Turf for Physical Therapy Exercises
There are several benefits to installing synthetic turf for PT exercises. The energy-absorbing backing pad used in SYNPlay 48 absorbs shock, helps reduce joint fatigue, and lessens the risk of common exercise injuries. The turf is accessible to individuals of all abilities, so patients with wheelchairs or other mobility support devices will not have any issues doing their drills on the turf.
SYNPlay 48 has a low-abrasive surface that is durable enough to withstand ongoing patient use. It also supports exercise equipment used as part of the treatments.
The high-quality turf installed by SYNLawn Mountain West South Dakota will enhance the physical therapy experience for clients and staff for many years.
