The BioSway is a portable balance system bringing testing and training technology to the patient. This easy transport system is a vital tool for clinicians on-the-go with advanced features such as a new larger display, expanded connectivity, USB ports, Ethernet connectivity, upgradable software, interactive CATCH Game, Video/Audio and more.
The BioSway is a light weight instrumented platform with a high-resolution color touch-screen display. The system sets up in minutes to provide patients with a choice of interactive teaching modes or standardized testing environments including the Clinical Test of Sensory Integration of Balance (CTSIB). BioSway provides the necessary reporting for establishing need, progress and outcome. All test results and training sessions can be stored and printed.
The BioSway emphasizes specific movement patterns, encourages proprioception and motor control and is ideal for vestibular training. Patients are challenged to shift and control their center of gravity through an interactive balance game and other rehabilitative training strategies.
Who can benefit from the Biodex BioSway?
The applications for the BioSway are extensive; here are just some of the patients who can benefit from this device.
Older Adult – Fall Risk
Older adults can be tested for balance deficiencies, and training programs can be established to help them remain mobile or regain their mobility. The programs, while challenging and effective, have been designed to be fun and encourage compliance and success. The portability of the BioSway allows the testing and training to be done either "in-facility" or on an outpatient, home care situation.
Utilizing the CTSIB capabilities of the BioSway, clinicians can test patients and compare balance test results to normative data.
Neurological/Parkinson's and Stroke Patients
The clinician can safely assess balance and stability and begin to treat and re-train balance and gait through progressive testing and training modes. Patients are motivated with real-time biofeedback while their progress can be documented
and printed for review.
The Clinical Test for Sensory Integration of Balance (CTSIB) test helps to differentiate which sensory system (visual, somatosensory, or vestibular) the patient relies on to maintain balance. The BioSway allows the clinician to make such evaluations and begin to accurately address deficiencies.
Post Surgical/Amputee and Post Trauma Rehabilitation
The BioSway is a valuable tool when addressing balance deficiencies in post-surgical Hip, Knee and Ankle patients, as well as Amputee patients. Balance evaluation, retraining, lower extremity strengthening and weight-shift training can speed recovery. The post surgical patients benefit from evolving difficulty of the training modes and the real-time biofeedback. The clinician benefits from ease-of-use, trackable documentation and fast results.
