What is Maps Therapy?

MAPS is the acronym (in Spanish) for Progressive and Sequential Analytical Mobilisation (Movilización Analítica Progresiva y Secuencial). As a functional rehabilitation method, it is used mainly for treating the hand and upper extremity using mechanotherapy as a basic tool.

The aim of Maps Therapy is to recover normal movement of hand structures after injury or disease.

Thanks to this methodology, we seek to accurately work with the structures affected after an injury and adapt techniques to the mechanical needs of each structure depending on their status.

How did the project start?

The Canadian board is a mechanotherapy tool already used for hand rehabilitation, but there was no methodology describing use.

Working with the Canadian board and discovering its possibilities has allowed us to improve the quality of our treatments. The creation of new adaptations comes from years of observation and constant research.

The result of all this work is Maps Therapy, our system for functional rehabilitation of the hand and upper extremity through innovative mechanotherapy.

What is it good for?

Maps Therapy lets users create custom exercises for each patient according to their needs. Thanks to its easy assembly, it can be set up relatively quickly to help patients work over long periods.

Sample applications:

  • treatment of traumatic injuries: helps protect injured structures ensuring movement without risk of breaking the structure;
  • treatment of aftermaths such as stiffness: successful at changing the shape and shaping the new tissue to improve movement;
  • nerve damage: developing very focused selective exercises adapted to the patient’s capacity to avoid undesired compensations;
  • functional diseases and instabilities: helps improve hand motor control
