Biodex Unweighing System
Recovering from an injury or surgery often involves extensive rehabilitation that has to start as quickly as possible. However, many patients are not ready for the stress of an extensive exercise routine.The Biodex Unweighing System allows a patient to put less weight on his or her injuries while performing rehabilitative exercises in a safe, secure, upright position as it incorporates a dynamic suspension system that holds and supports a patients body weight whilst also allowing for normal gait during rehabilitation exercises.The partial weight-bearing therapy is easily conducted with convenient access to the patient for manual assistance and observation with weight being gradually added as the injury improves faster and range of motion will be restored sooner. Physiotherapists are not devoting all their time to physically supporting patients during their workouts, they can concentrate on proper body movement.
