rule the day.
Father of medical exercise therapy, Oddvar Holten, developed the initial principles in the early 1960’s. With research performed at Andrews University, we developed the strategies, or MET-odology, to implement best clinical practice and the biopsychosocial model of care in a value-based delivery system.
These principles continue to be used in current clinical research and practice throughout many European countries. And as we see an increased focus on value-based care in the US, the MET-odology is becoming increasingly popular.
Success of therapeutic intervention depends on the ability to establish the appropriate stimuli and overload throughout the recovery process for the targeted physiological objective.
Without a precise approach to dosing, even the most effective treatment designs fail to deliver meaningful outcomes and can even do more harm than good.
Precision dosing turns into clinically-effective delivery of treatment. The treatment benefits from the granular adjustments made possible with MET-endorsed equipment.
Our leadership’s combined time in the world of occupational and physical therapy spans more than 5 decades. During that time, MET founders Frank and Becky have served virtually every role in the clinical therapy setting. That real-world experience has made our MET-odology highly adaptable to any clinical setting while still resting on a foundation of research and industry-leading methodologies.
