A physical therapy clinic needs flooring that accommodates a number of types of exercises and therapeutic techniques used to help patients gain strength and stability.

  3. Martial Arts Karate Mat Premium 1 Inch
  4. Rubber Flooring Rolls 3/8 Inch Regrind Confetti
  5. Plyometric Rubber Roll 1/2 Inch Black


These physical therapy flooring solutions are used by members of orthopedic university instructor teams, physical therapists for sports injuries, and other medical/health specialist professionals practicing physical therapy. Whether a clinic provides inpatient care, outpatient care, or a variety of both, these flooring solutions meet the guidelines suggested for physical therapy settings.

PT Artificial Grass Turf Roll 12 Ft wide per SF a turf product that is perfect for a physical therapy clinic setting.

This PT turf delivers superior durability and shock resistance that is far superior to carpet or bare flooring. It also features sound absorption qualities and a padded surface. It offers a level of safety, as it helps promote balance and prevents falls, and standard street shoes work great with this turf.

413 Fitness in Austin, Texas and other physical therapy facilities use this product for specialty training. For instance, 413 Fitness offers boxing as a form of therapy for Parkinson’s patients, and they note, “One of the things with Parkinsons is people have a hard time regulating their body temperature. A lot of them sweat walking in from their car. We are constantly sanitizing our mats. They clean up so well and they even accommodate wheelchairs.”
