SummaryStatic and dynamic balance testing and training for athletes to older adults. Assess neuromuscular control by quantifying the ability to maintain bilateral and unilateral postural stability.
Long DescriptionThe Biodex Balance System SD is designed to test and improve balance, increase agility and develop muscle tone. Used to treat a wide variety of pathologies, including sports medicine/orthopedic, concussion management, fall risk screening and conditioning, older adult, wellness and neurorehabilitation. The Balance System SD can capture, quantify and document a patient's relative tendency to compensate for impairments in one or more of the contributing systems: visual, vestibular or somatosensory. This information can determine functional deficits and help design a course of treatment. Comparisons to normative data help communicate need, progress and outcome. The device includes a Fall Risk Screening & Conditioning Test and Program that can help identify “potential fall” candidates. Once identified, the same device can be used to improve certain risk factors associated with fall. The Balance System SD can be used as part of a concussion management program, measuring the elements of balance before and after an injury occurs. The device provides detailed summary and progress reports to help track recovery and provide the quantitative data to help with the return-to-play decision.
