The Raptor Soft Tissue Percussion Device is the latest therapeutic innovation created by Anthony Katz and the HyperIce team. Designed with the therapist’s needs in mind, the Raptor raises the bar on assisted soft tissue mobilization.
Who is using the Raptor?
“The RAPTOR is setting a new standard in the training room for more therapeutic and efficient treatment in a shorter period of time,” said Los Angeles Lakers Head Athletic Trainer Gary Vitti. “Because the RAPTOR is more effective than the other percussion tools I’ve used, I’m able to see more athletes and patients, provide high quality, therapeutic benefits and, most of all, focus on really diving into muscular issues with renewed hand strength. I use it every day on our athletes; it’s a game changer.”
Why consider the Raptor?
Dr. John Pecora serves as MeyerPT’s Strategic Education Director and has had ample firsthand experience treating athletes from all kinds of sports. He “test drove” the Raptor and used it on a number of different muscle groups before taking notes as to why you should consider using the Raptor in your clinic.
“The Raptor’s rapid mechanical percussions penetrate several layers of muscle with up to 3600 percussions per minute. The device is compact, powerful and has 4 easily-interchanged applicators that are suitable for hundreds of protocols.
The Raptor does not replace the benefits of direct human touch and deep tissue massage, but instead allows you to treat more patients with renewed hand strength.
As a clinician, I love it because it’s powerful, easy to use and it saves my hands.
My patients and athletes love it because it’s extremely comfortable and helps them recover and feel better, faster.”
