“I think the [Biodex Sit2Stand Trainer] helps me when I’m sitting anywhere... on a chair or a sofa. It has helped me to be able to get myself back up. I used to do this exercise at home on a regular dining room chair but this is much better. I love it."

“We use the (Biodex) Balance System with a number of different types of patients. One of my favorite types is the stroke patient. It gives them immediate feedback on affected-side weight bearing. It is also very helpful in rehabilitating patients with Parkinson's disease, who have a tendency of falling backwards without sensing their risky stance. The Balance System can show them feedback that emphasizes that fall risk. But they also can use the machine to practice getting their weight forward on their toes, and being able to control their balance and their center of gravity in ways that they may have been too afraid to attempt prior to Balance System training." >>

“I have used the Biodex Balance System for two years with a wide variety of patients ranging from geriatrics to professional athletes. It is a great resource to have in the clinic when dealing with hip, knee, and ankle dysfunction patients, and is especially beneficial with the athletic population.

As a rule, athletes are very competitive and hate to be shown their functional deficits. The Biodex Balance System shows their proprioceptive weakness and challenges them to improve. The Balance System test mode provides a standard baseline to evaluate the athlete in a static or dynamic nature. The computer generates a print-out of the standard deviations of correctional mistakes and the percentage of time the athlete stays in a particular quadrant. It then compares this to normative balance data that Biodex has provided. This allows the objective measures of the athlete to be trained, and then easily reevaluated and assessed to quantify proprioceptive improvement. >>
