The 12th annual Thera-Band® Research Advisory Committee (TRAC) meeting was held July 19-21, 2010 in Athens, Greece. 15 international researchers and clinicians met for 3 days to present and discuss research on Thera-Band® and Biofreeze® products. The diverse international group included physical therapists, occupational therapist, chiropractors, massage therapists, and university professors. TRAC members presented 19 research projects on a variety of topics from EMG to clinical outcomes. “We have been committed to supporting evidence-based practice for over a decade. Our TRAC research helps professionals understand not only how effective our products are, but also how to best utilize them in practice.” said Phil Page, PhD, PT ATC, Director of Education and Research. The mission of the Thera-Band Academy is to support research, education, and practice. “By having a diverse group of professionals in TRAC, they are able to provide a great blend of clinical and research knowledge, as well as different points of view from various disciplines and cultures,” added Page. “I’m not aware of any other manufacturer who has this type of group to support evidence-based practice with their products.” Download the research proceedings from the TRAC meeting here.
