Make STOTT PILATES® Exercise and Merrithew® Equipment Part of Your Practice

Long known for its benefits in the fitness and sports performance arenas, STOTT PILATES® is also a highly effective tool for rehabilitation, post-rehabilitation and fitness maintenance. The STOTT PILATES Movement System, when used in conjunction with the Merrithew® V2 Max Plus Reformer, can provide another dimension to your clinical practice, and an additional revenue stream once the rehab program is finished. Once the client has completed their treatment, the V2 Max Plus Reformer can be used for ongoing maintenance and injury prevention. This is when the client can start working with a STOTT PILATES Certified Instructor on the Pilates equipment rather than a physiotherapist, generating an additional revenue stream for the facility.
