Redcord Has Arrived!
Redcord -a unique, exciting and leading edge form of exercise therapy is now available at the Therapy Center at Hackettstown Regional Medical Center.
Redcord was developed in Norway 25 years ago and made its way to the United States just a few years ago. Redcord uses the weight of a person's own body for resistance and can be used for rehabilitation or for performance-oriented training. Exercises can be adjusted to be more or less challenging so that it can be used by most everyone, regardless of age, strength, size and physical ability-from Olympic athletes to 80-year- old patients needing wheelchair assistance.
