What Is The Biodex Balance Machine?
The Biodex Balance machine at Global Physical Therapy & Spine Specialists is a valuable training tool for anyone who is looking to improve their agility, balance, and develop muscle tone. The machine features easy-to-follow on screen instructions, and is fairly simple to operate. It leads you through tests and training modules, and can perform accurate Fall Risk Screenings for older patients.
According to the Biodex website, “Balance retraining exercises are designed to steady a patient while walking or standing through improvements in coordination of muscle responses and organization of sensory information. Static and dynamic tests are administered to gauge a patient’s balance – objective reporting and comparisons to normative data aid in the development of individual exercise plans.”
What Conditions Can Biodex Balance Treat?
The Biodex Balance machine can treat several conditions, including the following:
Fall risk screening and conditioning
Rehab for senior patients
Neurorehabilitation for patients recovering from a stroke or dealing with Parkinson’s
Sports medicine/orthopedic management
The Biodex Balance system is able to detect areas of weakness and challenges patients to improve. It also provides games for patients to play that stimulate and motivate postural improvements, and challenge cognitive and motor function.
