How does BioSway work?

The Biodex BioSway system challenges patients to shift and control their center of gravity through interactive balance games and rehabilitative training strategies. To use the BioSway and enhance postural stability, you stand on a small lightweight instrumented platform facing a touch screen in front of you. Through sensory integration and various interactive training modes and balance games, your body will re-train itself to walk properly, improve balance, and decrease your risk of falling.

BioSway physical therapy can benefit patients with:

  • A high risk of falling
  • Vestibular diagnoses
  • Post-trauma
  • Ligament sprains
  • Impaired neuromuscular control
  • Parkinson’s
  • Stroke
  • Post-concussion recovery
  • Lower extremity post-surgical recovery
  • And more

These benefits can be experienced through balance testing, static force testing, a postural sway merits investigation or vestibular training.

If you’re looking for support with improving concussion management, balance deficiencies, motor control, postural sway, or specific movement patterns, schedule your balance assessment today. Contact an Ivy Rehab Physical Therapy location near you to learn more about the BioSway system.
