Medical Exercise Therapy
- By The Norwegian MET Institute
Intended for physiotherapists with an interest in the use of active exercises in rehabilitation. Contains strengthening/stabilising, mobilising, stretching, traction and co-ordination exercises for the whole body using equipment, for example, pulley and free weights.
MET is a branch of exercise therapy where the patient performs exercises using specially designed apparatus, without manual assistance, but under constant supervision of the physiotherapist. The exercise apparatus was designed to give a small enough resistance as well as being sturdy enough for deloading when needed to achieve functional rehabilitation.
