Robert Wood, chief of physical therapy at the Veteran's Hospital, is explaining this set of M.G. pulley panels and their use to members of the Falldin American Legion Auxiliary. Left to right, Mrs. Russ Bennek, 3100 Stinson Blvd; Mrs. Harold Emerson, 1513 Twenty-sixth Avenue Northeast and Mrs. Lloyd Hermes, 3250 Lincoln Street. These pulleys, invented by Professor Martin Mundale, University of Minnesota, are used to rehabilitate atrophied muscles in any part of the body. When it is impossible for the patient to get onto the exercise table, he can be given physical therapy from a wheelchair or portable bed. Mr. Wood says this equipment, donated to the hospital by Falldin Auxiliary, will expedite the rehabilitation of many stroke and paralytic patients.
