Fall Risk Screening & Conditioning Program

Help patients thrive and attract older adult community members… with Fall Risk Screening & Balance Exercise

Reduce Falls and Improve Balance
Falls are one of the greatest causes of serious health problems among older adults. Biodex offers a Fall Risk Screening & Conditioning Program that allows patients and residents to begin the program with data-driven goals. The easy to understand feedback keeps people motivated to improve their results.

The program and associated technology, will not only help reduce a patient’s risk of falling, but can be used to rehabilitate total hip and knee replacement, as well as a wide array of orthopedic and neurological conditions and generally improve overall mobility.

The Program
The Biodex Fall Risk Screening & Conditioning Program is based on well-established science and uses technology to create an objective and efficient program. Modifying the factors that lead to falls will increase mobility and confidence, both crucial to maintaining personal independence.

The program is a simple combination of risk-factor screening including analytical balance testing in conjunction with universally accepted normative data and medical protocols. If a patient is found to be at risk of falling, there is an array of interventions and exercises that can help restore balance and reduce the risk. Intervention is supported by patient education and exercise plans. Biodex supports intervention with patient education and exercise plans.

Balance Assessment
The Balance System SD can identify a potential problem in just two minutes. The Biodex Fall Risk protocol of balance exercise will improve an individual’s ability to remain upright under challenging conditions.

Lower Body Strength
Strength is a critical contributor for a rapid response to a balance disturbance. Testing will identify weakness and, if necessary, exercise will significantly improve lower body strength.

Gait and Endurance
Independence is directly related to walking speed. Older adults typically display a slower walking speed, with shorter steps, varied in length. These are all factors related to falls. Senior safe exercise equipment, such as the Biodex BioStep, can help strengthen and build endurance of muscles; specifically those associated with ambulation.

Objective Documentation – Click Here
Objective reporting is a marked distinction with the Biodex Balance System SD – necessary in this changing environment – allowing you to justify need, demonstrate progress and accurately report outcome.

With the population aging, the rate of fall-related injury or death is a growing concern. Studies show balance, gait, strength and flexibility training not only help improve mobility and confidence, but help reduce the risk of falling. The Balance System™ SD adds objectivity to assessment and training that will help keep seniors on their feet.
