According to the CDC, more than one third of adults 65 and older fall each year in the United States and 20% to 30% of people who fall suffer moderate to severe injuries. Physical therapists can help in risk reduction and prevention of falls.
BalanceTrak® is a program providing a safe way to improve balance, stability, coordination, and walking ability. BalanceTrak® oftentimes utilizes an overhead suspension system we developed to further improve safety in the clinic. Overhead suspension has several benefits:
- Eliminates the Fear of Falling
- Boosts Confidence
- Challenges Patients with Advance Movements
- Creates a Safe Environment for Balance, Strength and Gait Training
- Complete Safety From Fall Related Injuries
We are currently gathering research data on our BalanceTrak® progam. The preliminary results are very promising! Balance impairments have decreased from 61% to 22%. This indicates a 40% less chance of falling based on standardized test scores. Patients who complete our BalanceTrak® program report they feel more safe and confident at home and in the community.
