Today I finished my fourth day of physical therapy this week and my third week with Orthopedic Physical Therapists and Associates. We spent time again on the Cybex Isokinetic machine. This is very interesting machine and since it is controlled by a computer (Windows XP Home) it is even more interesting.

Because the seats for this device sit about as high as a full size SUV, it takes some work and strength to get me into it. Jeff Schafer, the therapist I work with most, has grown stronger since I started with him. It takes some doing to lift me into these chairs as well as some of the other tasks that are a part of the job like helping me to stand. Soon we'll be trying the treadmill and that will no doubt present new challenges.

The computer measures the strength I'm using to kick my leg forward and pull it backwards. (More to come later)
