Circuit class training mode: The Multi-Functional Quantitative Training System satisfies at least 3 key features of an effective and efficient physical training program.
1. Circuit class training allows patients to practice intensively in a meaningful and progressive way that suits their individual needs.
2. It is an efficient use of the therapist’s time during which patients are actively engaged in task practice as compared to individual therapy. With that, this training system is potentially an effective method of cost saving to the healthcare system by reducing staff-to-patient ratios.
3.The circuit class training design encompasses group dynamics that include peer support and social interaction. This peer support and social interaction may enhance attendance at classes and improve compliance with individual exercises, thus increasing the “dose” of training
and therefore its effectiveness. Furthermore, the social interaction may bring its own psychosocial benefits, eg, increased confidence and improved mood.
