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 CATCHGame, Video/Audio and more.
The BioSway is a lightweight 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.
can be tested for balance deficiencies, and training programs can be established to help them remain mobile or regain their mobility. The portability of the BioSway allows the testing and training to be done either “in-facility” or on location.
Note: ICD-9 Code V15.88 Personal History of Fall includes patients identified as “at risk of falling.” Click here to view additional codes.
Utilizing the CTSIB capabilities of the BioSway, clinicians can test patients and compare balance test results to normative data.
The clinician utilizes the BioSway to assess balance and stability of those patients suffering from neurological disorders associated with Parkinson’s, Stroke or Peripheral Neuropathy, and to determine a course of treatment. The progressive testing and training modes are applied to treat and re-train balance and gait. Patients are motivated with real-time biofeedback while their progress can be documented and printed for review.
The portable BioSway is an evaluation tool, as well as a rehabilitative device, ideal for patients experiencing vestibular issues. Vestibular therapy includes balance retraining exercises designed to steady a patient while walking or standing through improvements in coordination of muscle responses and organization of sensory information. Coupled with the NEW VibroTactile System patients receive vibrotactile biofeedback resulting in improved postural control – eliminating the need for subjective verbal and hands-on therapist cueing.
Post Surgical/Amputee and Post Trauma Rehabilitation
The BioSway is a valuable tool when addressing balance deficiencies in postsurgical Hip, Knee and Ankle patients, as well as Amputee patients. Balance evaluation, retraining, lower extremity strengthening and weightshift 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.
Biodex Balance Assessment for Concussion Management delivers objective preseason baseline and postinjury balance assessment for athletes. Detailed summary and progress reports track recovery and provide quantitative data to aid clinicians with return-toplay decisions.
