April, 2015, Shirley, NY – Biodex Medical Systems, Inc. was pleased to host its annual visit from the Suffolk County Community College physical therapy students. The event, which was held at the Biodex corporate office, was intended to provide the students with an overview of isokinetics and hands-on demonstrations of the Balance System SD, System 4 Dynamometer and the
Gait Trainer 3.
During the meeting, Bill Galway, Business Development Manager, and Don Gronachan, Vice President of Physical Medicine Sales discussed the principles and advantages of isokinetics, the importance of objective documentation, and the value of the programs we offer to enhance the versatility of the products.
“We are committed to support the rehabilitation community as the role of our products expands throughout the world,” states Don Gronachan. “We will continue to develop new programs and utilizations, and we’re excited about the challenges ahead.”
Once the session moved from the Biodex Learning Center on to the demonstration area, the students were divided into three small groups. They volunteered for hands-on product demos to familiarize themselves with the devices and their functions, and observed the reports generated for proving need, tracking progress and documenting outcomes.
“Biodex is dedicated to furthering the education of future physical therapists,” states Bill Galway. “Each year we look forward to seeing new students and discussing our programs and devices with them.”
The group appeared to be very inquisitive and attentive throughout the event. This was a great opportunity for the students of our community to gain valuable knowledge from experts in their field of study.
