Balance Training

Biodex stand alone image Balance TrainingThere is a need for people as they get older to work on their balance.  If a clinician will incorporate balance into their exercise routines, this would a large benefit for the patients.

At EPT we use the Biodex balance machine; a state of the art standing machine that patients can challenge their vestibular and neurological systems.  The Biodex can have the person work on one and two-foot balance along with challenging their overall muscular system.  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 Assessment 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.
