Biodex Balance Assessment for Concussion Management
Biodex Balance Assessment for Concussion Management adds an objective neurophysical component that gives clinicians the ability to quantify the elements of balance before and after an injury occurs. The objective data provided by Biodex Balance Assessment provides a performance baseline against which post-injury performance can be compared. Detailed summary and progress reports track recovery and provide the medical team with quantitative data to help with the return-to-play decision. Learn More >>

Pre-screening & Managing Hamstring Injuries
Hamstring injury
is serious business. Regardless of whether you have an existing process for protecting and strengthening hamstrings, the objective test protocols offered with the Biodex System 4 will provide valuable, isolated muscle-performance data. Test results, combined with established targeted outcomes, can be used for pre-emptive injury screening, managing rehabilitation and determining readiness for return to play.
