Does Your Balance Affect Your Everyday Activities?

Physical therapy can help balance disorders!

Does your balance affect your everyday activities? Physical therapy can help!  Reddy Care creates an individualized balance program based on each patient's weakness and limitations.  Reddy Care has very advanced clinical equipment to ensure that our patients reach their goals! 

 

Our virtual reality balance system is equipped with multiple assessment programs to help fully understand the current conditions of a patient. The Prokin 252 helps with the assessment of both single and double leg stance and records your balance, stability, and flexibility to help guide your treatment plan.  After the assessments are complete, your physical therapist can select a game that best fits your condition and helps to train balance, allowing the patient to maintain concentration and have fun!   These games create a twist from the classic ways of balance rehabilitation.  Can you believe that you can now improve your balance while playing a game? 

 

Our technobody Virtual Reality Treadmill allows your physical therapist to receive feedback on your gait patterns; range of motion, stride length, and weight symmetry in a matter of seconds! These all can be determined from the patient walking on the treadmill anywhere from 30 seconds to a few minutes! This is a great technology to help to re-educate gait and improve the movements of the patient. The Virtual Reality Treadmill allows you to fully analyze the strengths and weaknesses of a patient simply by walking.

 

The Solo Step is there to catch you if you fall!  The harness that you are put in is attached to a track in the ceiling that will protect you when you fall, this is 100% FALL PROOF!  The Solo Step provides patients with a quicker recovery process, allowing them to begin standing upright immediately. Because of this, patients are able to get back to doing the activities they love much faster than they may have anticipated.

 

On top of all of Reddy Care's advanced technology, we also use other methods of treatment for balance discorders including balance pads and floor obstacles to ensure all of our patients reach their goals!
