Multiple Applications and Pathologies with a Single Investment.
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 “touchscreen” 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 Screening 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.
The Balance System SD also serves as a valuable training device to enhance kinesthetic abilities that may provide some degree of compensation for impaired proprioceptive reflex mechanisms following injury.
Using this unique device, clinicians can assess neuromuscular control by quantifying the ability to maintain dynamic bilateral and unilateral postural stability on a static or unstable surface.

Fall Risk Screening and Conditioning
The Balance System SD includes a comprehensive Fall Risk Screening & Conditioning Program and Protocol, consistent with American Geriatrics Guidelines. Identify a person at risk to fall in just two minutes by comparing their balance test results to age-dependent normative data.
Tackling the needs of the older adult requires an understanding of the complex physiology of this population segment. As part of the Balance & Mobility product series, the Balance System SD addresses age related diseases by aiding in increasing mobility, addressing fall risk, improving balance, developing muscle tone and increasing agility.
The NEW FreeSway Handles let older patients safely learn to control their postural sway under various conditions – for example, on unstable surfaces or with eyes closed. Patients feel safe, but without the restriction of fixed support.
The Biodex Balance System offers technology, along with associated printed reports documenting need, progress and outcomes. This increases clinical efficiency, productivity, and helps reduce the rate of readmissions – making you an attractive partner to ACOs.
The training exercises of the Balance System SD are geared to improve strength, range of motion, gait and balance for those patients suffering from neurological involvement associated with Parkinson’s, Stroke or Peripheral Neuropathy. In practice, the Balance System can capture, quantify and document a patient’s relative tendency to overcompensate to one side or the other. This information can often determine a true course of treatment.
Co-developed by patient partners and neurorehabilitation researchers, the NEW Recovery Rapids game delivers high-repetition massed practice, widely used in stroke therapy.
The Balance System SD is simple to use with an intuitive touchscreen. Wellness members require minimal supervision and can progress through the various levels at their own pace. Training exercise includes static and dynamic balance activities, weight shifting, increasing limits of stability, and improving reaction time. The system produces color reports to provide motivating feedback.
The Balance System SD is an evaluation tool, as well as a rehabilitative device, ideal for patients experiencing vestibular issues. Balance retraining exercises are designed to steady a patient while walking or standing through improvements in coordination of muscle responses and organization of sensory information. Static and dynamic tests are administered to gauge a patient’s balance – objective reporting and comparisons to normative data aid in the development of individual exercise plans.
The VibroTactile System provides patients with vibrotactile biofeedback resulting in improved postural control – eliminating the need for subjective verbal and hands-on therapist cueing.
Help athletes perform better by demonstrating functional deficits. The Biodex Balance System documents weakness and challenges patients to improve. The various test modes evaluate the athlete in a static or dynamic environment, and then generates objective documentation of the results. Reports include standard deviations of target performance, the percentage of time an athlete stays in a particular quadrant and then compares performance to normative data, built into the system. This allows the objective measures of the athlete to be trained, and then easily reevaluated and assessed to quantify improvement.
Biodex Balance Assessment for Concussion Management is used by high school, college, and professional sports teams to unravel the mystery of concussion and to bring together best practices combining cognitive testing and a graded symptoms checklist in combination with balance assessment. The Balance System is an objective Balance Assessment tool that provides a performance baseline against which post-injury performance can be compared aiding with return-to-play decisions.
