Allows for functional vertical displacement and functional pelvic rotation or stabilization during partial weight-bearing therapy
Full Patient Access – open frame design encourages therapist facilitation and clears an unobstructed forward view for patients.
One-Handed Control – press a button to raise or lower patient; another to set unweighing load.
Counters Harness Slippage – Auto Unload feature compensates for potential harness movement due to slippage or posture changes.
Convenient Control – newly designed hand-held remote can be magnetically attached anywhere on the frame.
Safe Environment – dynamic, single-point suspension is safer for patients and negates the need for therapist support and risk of personal injury.
Pelvic Stabilization – possible as single- or two-point stabilization with retention cords.
Tall and Small – from pediatric up to 6ft 7in on a standard treadmill in an area with 8ft ceilings or up to 7ft 2in over ground.
Get Comfortable – therapist seat can easily be moved along the base of the frame or from side-to-side. A second seat is available separately.
Handrails As Needed – easily removable for specific balance training exercise.
Room-to-Room – collapses to 32" (81 cm) wide to fit through standard door frames.
VA Hospital Study* supports the concept of the Biodex Unweighing System.
"If the system does not allow for vertical movements, gait is markedly distorted. The subject may still be able to move on the treadmill, since the walking surface is moving below him, but this unnatural gait is not the goal of therapy."
- Support up to 40% of patient's body weight
- Allow for 5.5 cm of vertical movement to permit normal gait
- Report reliably to ensure the correct degree of unloading
- Enable easy adjustment to the amount of body weight support as the subject improves or fatigues during a training exercise
