Shirley, NY – June 2, 2014 – Biodex Medical Systems, Inc. is pleased to introduce enhanced product software for the Balance System SD – now with Automated G-code Calculation and Impairment Level Reports, Enhanced Sensory Integration Balance Testing, new Normative Databases and new Patient Data Collection capabilities.


Biodex is addressing the importance of Medicare reimbursement and continuity of care with the addition of automated G-code calculation and impairment level reports.  The enhanced objective reporting includes impairment percent with associated modifier code, functional limitation G‐code categories, and patient status (current and discharge).

The automated reporting allows therapists to spend more time with patients, less time on paperwork and assures fewer reimbursement denials from Medicare, leading to increased efficiency and productivity.  Therapists can use the reporting to manage patients efficiently and generate more detailed objective documentation of rehab effectiveness, providing justification of clinical decision making.

Enhanced sensory integration balance testing capabilities allow facilities to be on the leading edge with Balance Assessment for Concussion Management and Fall Risk Screening and Conditioning Programs, thus increasing services and the opportunity for referrals.

The Balance System SD can now perform both the CTSIB test and a modified version of a Balance Error Scoring System test of postural stability, both important for Concussion Management.  In addition, custom sensory integration balance testing can be created allowing for modification of existing or the creation of entirely new protocols with both tests.

The availability of new normative databases allows for targeting of athletic and senior populations.  The new patient data collection software utility permits archiving test records in patient folders.  In addition, custom normative data can be created, using patient data which is easily exported as a .csv file to Excel for statistical analysis.

“Biodex understands that in order for facilities to grow and prosper they need to be on the cutting edge with the services they offer to patients,” states Don Gronachan, Vice President Physical Medicine Sales.  “Our goal is to ensure that our customers have the most advanced rehabilitation systems and programs to meet these needs.”

Biodex Medical Systems, Inc. manufactures rehabilitation devices for all disciplines of physical medicine including Senior Rehabilitation, Sports Medicine/Orthopedic, Neurorehabilition, Post-Acute Care and Wellness Conditioning.
