Balance and Stability Training

BALANCE seems to be all over the news and in medical journals these days, but many do not comprehend the importance that balance and stability plays in daily life for people of all ages. The number one fear of people over 50 is falling. One of the chief complaints from patients in the same age category is that they don’t feel steady on their feet. There are millions of fall related injuries that cause hospitalization, permanent rehabilitation, and even death. Now is the time to pay attention to problems with Balance and Stability and use a proven and effective method to rehabilitate them.

FALLING is a result of the inability to recover from a stumble. The fall rate continues to rise as the population of older adults grows, and is a very real concern to patients and their doctors alike. Falling is not just a concern for the elderly, but for all. There are obstacles out there in daily life that threaten falls constantly. The ability to NOT FALL when one of these obstacles is encountered is key.

STABILITY is an important component of almost all daily activities. Simply walking requires a person to be on one foot at a time. In addition, weekend warriors and elite young athletes spend A LOT of time on one foot.

PROBALANCE 360 is a FDA cleared, medical grade device that uses integrated proprietary technologies for Diagnostics and Therapy to improve Balance, Coordination, Proprioception and overall Stability.

PROBALANCE 360 is a data driven analysis system for the input from the 5 body systems that contribute to balance and stability (or conversely, balance deficit and instability.)

EYES: Sight visual processing

HEARING SYSTEM: The function and role of the ears with regard to hearing and vestibular function

CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM: The speed and accuracy of how the brain interprets information

PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM: The response time and accuracy of the nerves which transmit information from the body to the brain

MUSCULOSKELETAL SYSTEM: Receptors within the joints and soft tissues that are responsible for proprioception (knowing where the body is in space) and mechanoreception (appropriate response and effective motion)

PROBALANCE360 uses the data from the analysis, which allows our doctors to customize balance therapy plans that address each patient’s individual needs. The therapy addresses each of the body systems during each session keeping the sessions fun, active and easily accepted by people of all ages.
