In our continuing effort to provide the best care and treatment available, we now offer a Fall Risk Screening and Conditioning Program at our facility in Edgewater, New Jersey. This allows us to safely and effectively treat older adults, young athletes, and post-surgical rehabilitation patients, using balance testing and weight shift exercises to ensure our patients improve quality of life and safely return to play.
The new Balance System SD improves balance, increases agility, and develops muscle tone, with the broadest range of treatment options. The system helps our therapists identify weakness, the challenges that patients have to overcome in order to improve their health. It provides objective documentation and tracks patients throughout their assessment and training phases, providing acurate printed progress reports.

Sport Injury Risk & Concussion Management
New Biodex Balance System SD assessment for concussion management helps manage specific sports injuries and determine safe return to play.
The 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. The balance assessment provides a performance baseline against which post-injury performance can be compared, aiding with return-to-play decisions. Preseason baseline testing and post injury return-to play management using the Clinical Test of Sensory Integration of Balance.
The system 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.
Our new Biodex Fall Risk Screening & Conditioning Program can identify potential Risk Factors in just two minutes. Those identified can be entered into the Conditioning Program to reduce the risk.
