The Samitivej Active Performance Medical Center (SMAP) is more than just a physical rehabilitation and physiotherapy center; it offers a range of uniquely tailored physical activities aimed at improving performance. The services provided at SMAP cater to professional athletes, people with a special interest in sports, those who have suffered a sports injury, the elderly, and those at risk of, or currently suffering with, cardiovascular disease. This is because, in addition to improving their athletic performance, we want our patients to exercise safely.
Featuring a wide range of equipment designed specifically to develop muscle and joint strength, SMAP also includes a number of highly accurate and medically accredited devices that are able to analyze and assess muscular function, which can differ significantly from general forms of fitness. Additionally, the center’s systems are able to record each user’s information so that our team of expert medical staff specializing in rehabilitative medicine can be by the patient’s side providing personalized advice at all stages of their recovery. In this way, we are able to ensure they make a rapid and full return to their daily lives, including being capable of playing the sports they love in a safe and efficient manner. We are confident that our preparedness means every one of our patients receives the best care possible.
