Shirley, NY – October 29, 2014 – Biodex Medical Systems, Inc. is pleased to announce that it has formed a Preferred Vendor Partnership with Concussion Health. The partnership creates a symbiotic relationship in which education and balance assessment are used to follow best practices in the management of concussion, including both testing and rehabilitation.
Today, proper evaluation of concussion should include baseline Balance Assessment, Cognitive Assessment and Graded Symptoms Checklist. By combining Biodex Balance Assessment with Concussion Health education, practitioners will be better able to understand the rehabilitation component of a concussion program, become recognized as a Certified Concussion Provider, and will be able to offer a truly comprehensive program for concussion management.
“Our goal in entering this partnership with Concussion Health is to provide our customers both the assessment and the education on how to take the findings from an assessment and put them into a comprehensive care plan, so they may become the premier concussion rehabilitation facility in their area”, states Don Gronachan, Vice President, Physical Medicine Sales.
Biodex manufactures the testing and rehabilitation balance devices necessary to measure the elements of balance before and after an injury occurs. The Balance System SD and portable BioSway provide detailed summary and progress reports to help track recovery and provide the quantitative data to help with the return-to-play decision.
Concussion Health offers web-based tools that support best practices in concussion management. Education is the cornerstone of Concussion Health. After successfully completing the series of videos and online examination by Concussion Health, you will receive a competency based certificate. The course content is approved by the Board of Certification for athletic trainers and in the majority of states for physical therapists. Concussion Health also has a Scientific Advisory Team consisting of a variety of concussion experts to emphasize the importance of a multi-disciplinary approach in concussion management.
With the purchase of a Biodex balance device a facility becomes eligible for registration to become Concussion Health certified at no extra charge.
