Long DescriptionThe Biodex Unweighing System incorporates a dynamic suspension system accommodating the center of gravity vertical displacement that occurs during normal gait. Biodex's patented off-loading mechanism maintains constant force; simply dial the amount to off load. The system maintains a consistent unloading force allowing the clinician to progress the patient through graded weight bearing ambulation training without compromising proper gait mechanics. The open design allows easy therapist interaction with the patient from all sides. The Unweighing System can be used with or without a treadmill.
