3Tool - For the Professional and Patients !
3TOOL is an easy-to-use, intuitive tool that can be applied by physiotherapists and by their patients in self-treatment sessions in the home, always under professional supervision. It helps with treatment in the consultation and improves results at home.
Relief for Sprains and Muscular Pain
Its affordable price and the ease of on-line purchase makes 3TOOL the perfect solution for people with regular muscle aches, backing up treatment and also being able to recommend it to the patient for home physiotherapy.
Physiotherapy + Engineering = 3Tool
Although simple in appearance, 3TOOL is the outcome of 3 years of research by physiotherapists from San Jorge University and Fisioterapia Valdespartera in collaboration with engineers from the HOWLab group from Zaragoza University.
Improves professional treatment and is an aid for exercises in the home
Many physiotherapists recommend simple self-massage exercises and compression of muscle contractures as a complement to treatment. In physiotherapy treatments applied to this type of patients, not only the physiotherapist's work becomes very important, but also that the patients, in some way, learn to modulate the muscular strains caused by their lifestyle habits, their job or other factors. Thus avoiding acute crises or even obtaining a better quality of life. 3TOOL has been created in order to carry out self-treatment exercises in the home, complementing the physiotherapy treatment. It is a versatile, easy-to-use tool, both for professional and in a domestic situation.

Use 3 ways !
1. TREATMENT OF CONTRACTURES OR LOCAL PAINFUL SITES.
Patients may apply 3TOOL in two different ways:
a. Via the application of direct pressure: "zone 1" of the tool is placed upon the site of localized muscle pain followed by a gentle compression until relief is achieved. 3TOOL has an ergonomic shape designed to facilitate an optimal
grip and enable pressure applications without tiring.
b. By leaning the weight of the body or body segment directly upon "zone1". This is the recommended use for hard-to access body areas or when sustained pressure is required during longer periods. With this in mind, 3TOOL has been designed to offer optimal stability for the length of time the pressure is applied.
2. MASSAGE APPLICATIONS.
"Zone 2", with a more rounded shape, it is designed for the application of massage directly upon overstrained muscle areas. Compatible with the use of massage creams or oils to assist sliding.
3. SPECIFIC TREATMENT OF MUSCLE CONTRACTURES OR MUSCLE STRAINS IN AREAS ADJACENT TO THE SPINAL COLUMN.
"Zone 3" of the tool is specically designed to leave a small space to allow for the application of direct pressure upon the bony spinal segments, thus enabling an optimal coupling upon the muscle groups on either side of the spine. The
opposite surface has been designed to offer the clinician stability while pressure is applied to these muscles.
