Weightlesness (gravity zero) and physiotherapy.


30 years ago when I carried out professional works in Churin/Peru, remain surprised to see people with big sequelae of poliomyelitis (that by that time immobilized patients and was frequent), being bathed often in the thermal baths. The reason to carry out this practice was that (harmonious with the principle of Archimedes), the human body weighed 50% less in the water, by which the physical rehabilitation exercises were less hardly and carried out with greater ease, thing that I really verified. Yesterday in another setting (gravity zero, simulated in an airplane that performed 8 parabolic maneuvers), the english physic Stephen Hawking (65 years. University of Cambridge), mobilize freely (25 seconds) -in the space- the totality of his body (paralyzed since 43 years ago on account of an irreversible affection of his motor neurons). Today, surprised and fascinated -like many people- I think that physiotherapy performed in gravity zero spaces, will be one of the large avenues that the present medicine owes and needs to exploit.

Fisioterapia y gravedad zero.

Hace 30 años cuando realizaba labores profesionales en Churin/Perú, quedé sorprendido al ver a muchos pacientes con secuelas de poliomielitis abundantes por esa época, inmovilizados parcialmente y con escasa musculatura, bañandose frecuentemente en los baños termales.
La razón arguida era que (acorde con el principio de Arquímedes), el cuerpo humano pesaba 50% menos en el agua, por lo cual los ejercicios de rehabilitación fisica eran menos extenuantes y realizados con mayor soltura, hecho que efectivamente comprobé. Ayer en otro escenario (gravedad zero, simulada en un aeroplano que realizó 8 maniobras parabólicas), el fisico ingles Stephen Hawking (65 años. Universidad de Cambridge), movilizó libremente (25 segundos), en el espacio, la totalidad de su humanidad (paralizada desde hace 43 años a causa de una afección irreversible de sus neuronas motoras). Hoy, sorprendido y fascinado, al igual que muchos pienso que la fisioterapia en espacios de gravedad zero, se constituirá dentro de poco en una de las grandes avenidas que la medicina actual debe y necesita explotar.

Hey there terrific website! Does running a blog such as this take a lot of work?
I've absolutely no expertise in programming but I had been hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyways, if you have any ideas or tips for new blog owners please share. I understand this is off subject however I just wanted to ask. Thanks!
