The Smart Balance Master®, from NEUROCOM, helps improve balance in patients facing stroke, spinal cord injury, amputation, and traumatic brain injury. The device measures how well a patient’s eyes, inner ear, muscles, and joints are working together to maintain balance. It measures the patient’s center of gravity and postural control through a dynamic force plate with rotation capabilities and a dynamic visual surround to measure the patient’s use of visual information in maintaining balance. The Smart Balance Master provides immediate assessment and retraining capabilities with visual feedback on either a stable or unstable support surface. Your licensed Physical Therapists at Med Center Therapy use that data to adjust patient care.
Interactive, functional training exercises using visual biofeedback, coupled with sensitive, real-time monitoring of movement motivates our patients to achieve greater balance control faster. Exercise protocols available on the SMART Balance Master can be tailored to meet individual patient needs and can be progressed as your capabilities improve. Proprioceptive/sensory-motor and visual training can be enhanced as our licensed experts can independently set the movement of the support surface and/or visual surround.
