A fixed platform, portable Balance Assessment and Training device
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 touchscreen 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.
Lightweight Instrumented Platform sets up in minutes to provide static force testing for interactive training modes or standardized testing environments, including the Clinical Test for Sensory Integration of Balance (CTSIB).
Fully Portable Conveniently portable within a facility for in-resident care. For satellite locations, the optional hardshell travel case provides added protection when transporting to community-based health fairs or school settings for athletics. The case fits easily into small car trunks.
NEW Fall Risk Screening Test Using static force platform, objectively quantifies postural sway velocity to predict fall risk.
NEW Limits of Stability Test Uses angle from center to determine sway capabilities as a percentage of the standard. Allows for completion of sway assessment without minimum threshold requirements.
NEW Bilateral Comparison Test Measures and compares stability of one leg to the other using single-leg trials. Reports individual sway index and percent difference to assess deficit in orthopedic injuries.
NEW Software and Larger Display Intuitive navigation, 15.6" touch-screen display for improved user experience. Accommodates external keyboard and mouse.
NEW Microsoft SQL Database Allows clinician to easily store and retrieve patient data, multiple tests per patient. Export to Excelฎ for reporting and analytics.
Objective Documentation Printed color reports prove need, track progress and document outcomes ideal for insurance reimbursement. (Printer sold separately.)
Custom Reporting Allows entry of unique comments to test results and assignment of CPT codes.
G-Code Reporting Improve documentation of rehab effectiveness with automated G-code calculations and impairment level reports. These efficiencies foster continuity of care, simplify audits and reduce claims denial.
Enhanced Sensory Integration Balance Testing Capabilities Ability to perform a modified version of the Clinical Test of Sensory Integration of Balance (CTSIB) popular for concussion management. Customize existing CTSIB and BESS test parameters or create and save unique sensory integration protocols.
NEW Normative Data Healthy populations stored for test comparison of older adults for fall screening and student athletes for concussion management.
Audio/Visual Biofeedback Motivates patient by prompting proper balance control in real-time. Allows clinician to easily monitor patient during interactive testing/training.
NEW Vibrotactile Feedback Enhanced biofeedback for Biodex balance technology. Learn more about the VibroTactile System, www.biodex.com/vibrotactile.
Multipurpose Connectivity Allows connection to larger monitors and projectors to enhance interaction for visually impaired patients.
Display Stands The BioSway includes a tabletop stand that can also be used to wall mount the display. The display can even attach to compatible display mounts. A telescoping adjustable stand, available separately, is compact and portable with its own travel bag.
Prove Need. Progress. Outcome All test results and training sessions can be stored and printed. Comparison to normative data helps communicate need,
progress and outcome.
