Recovering from an injury, surgery or replacement often involves extensive rehabilitation that has to start as quickly as possible. However, many patients are not ready for the stress of an extensive exercise regimen. That is where the Biodex Unweighing System® comes in.
The Biodex Unweighing System, which is in place at the Outpatient Rehabilitation Care Centers on the Brunswick and Camden campuses, allows a patient to put less weight on his or her injuries while performing rehabilitative exercises in a safe, secure, upright position.
How Does It Work?
During the initial visit, one of the Health System’s therapists will fit the patient into the Biodex Unweighing System, developing an overall program best suited to his or her unique needs. At the beginning of therapy, as much as 40 percent of a patient’s weight will be supported, with weight being gradually added as the injury improves.
Because of the reduced weight, injured areas will support weight-bearing activities faster and range of motion will be restored sooner. Best of all, because our therapists and trainers are not devoting all their time to physically supporting patients during their workouts, they can concentrate on proper body movement.
