Gait & Balance Testing

Gait Testing

The New Gait Trainer 3 provides audio and visual biofeedback of step length and step speed. The Biodex Gait Trainer 3™ is more than a treadmill. It is designed with an instrumented deck that issues both audio and visual real-time biofeedback to prompt patients into their correct gait pattern. Step length, step speed and right-to-left time distribution (step symmetry) are directly addressed; patient footfall is compared to desired footfall step after step, both on the display in real time and documented in an easy to read histogram. The open-platform design enables the therapist to assist limb advancement when necessary and accommodates the Biodex Unweighing System for Body Weight Support Treadmill Training (BWSTT).

Gait Treadmill

Unlike some of the flashy technology available on the market, the Biodex Gait Trainer is quiet, non-intimidating and let’s the therapist get in there and treat their patients. The Biodex BWSTT environment does more than suspend the patient – real goals are monitored and progress reported. Objective documentation, with comparison to age- and gender-based normative data, helps prove need and document outcomes to family, referring physicians and insurance providers.

 

 

Balance Testing

The most popular Balance System…now even better!

Balance Training

The Biodex Balance System SD has been designed to meet the needs of everyone looking to improve balance, increase agility, develop muscle tone and treat a wide variety of pathologies. Featuring easy-to-follow “touch-screen” operation, the Balance System SD is simple to learn and operate, leading the user step-by-step through testing protocols and training modes in both static and dynamic formats. Extremely versatile, it is the only system that provides a fast, accurate Fall Risk Screening and Conditioning Program for older adults; closed-chain, weight-bearing assessment and training for lower extremity patients; and adds the objective balance assessment component to a concussion management program.
The Balance System SD also serves as a valuable training device to enhance kinesthetic abilities that may provide some degree of compensation for impaired proprioceptive reflex mechanisms following injury. Using this unique device, clinicians can assess neuromuscular control by quantifying the ability to maintain dynamic bilateral and unilateral postural stability on a static or unstable surface.
