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.
