Overview

The BioSway is a portable balance system bringing testing and training technology to the patient. This easy transport system is a vital tool for clinicians on-the-go with advanced features such as a new larger display, expanded connectivity, USB ports, Ethernet connectivity, upgradable software, interactive CATCH Game, Video/Audio and more.

The BioSway is a light weight instrumented platform with a high-resolution color touch-screen display. The system sets up in minutes to provide patients with a choice of interactive teaching modes or standardized testing environments including the Clinical Test of Sensory Integration of Balance (CTSIB). BioSway provides the necessary reporting for establishing need, progress and outcome. All test results and training sessions can be stored and printed.

The BioSway emphasizes specific movement patterns, encourages proprioception and motor control and is ideal for vestibular training. Patients are challenged to shift and control their center of gravity through an interactive balance game and other rehabilitative training strategies.

Features

  • Lightweight instrumented platform – sets-up in minutes to provide static force testing for interactive training modes or standardized testing environments, including the Clinical Test for Sensory Integration of Balance (CTSIB).
  • Fully Portable – BioSway is conveniently portable within a facility for in-resident care. For satellite locations, the optional hard-shell Travel Case provides added protection when transporting to community-based health fairs or school settings for athletics. The case fits easily into small car trunks.
  • Objective Documentation – Printed color reports track progress and document outcomes – ideal for insurance reimbursement. (Printer not included.)
    NEW Automated G-code Calculations and Impairment Level Reports – Increases efficiency and productivity, improves documentation of rehab effectiveness fostering continuity of care, helps with audits, efficiencies and reduces claims denial.
  • Custom Reporting – Allows entry of unique comments to test results and assignment of CPT codes.
  • Six Training Modes and Three Testing Protocols – Standardized testing for true progress assessment. Test results are compared to agebased normative.
  • Normative Data – Healthy age-based populations stored including student athletes for comparisons in concussion management.
  • Audio Biofeedback – Used for cueing successful target hits.
  • Visual Biofeedback – Prompts patients into proper balance control. Allows the clinician to easily monitor the patient and acts to motivate the patient during interactive testing/training.
  • Large Display – Features 12.1" touch-screen display, powered by a Windows CE operating system. Simple to learn and operate, leading the user step-by-step through testing protocols and training modes.
  • Display Stands – The BioSway includes a tabletop stand (a) that can also be used to wall mount (b) the display. A telescoping Adjustable Stand (c), available separately, is compact and portable with its own travel bag. The display can even attach to compatible display mounts (d).

  • Expanded Connectivity – Allows connection to larger monitors and LCD projectors to enhance interaction for visually impaired patients.
  • Ethernet Connection – Accommodates wireless printing.
  • USB Compatibility – Accommodates external keyboard, a mouse, printing devices for remote operation and USB memory devices for data transfer and software upgrades.
  • Video and Audio Out – Bolsters connectivity options to other devices.
  • Patient Data Collection Software (optional) - Facilitates download and transfer of patient data, stored in patient folders for archiving, reporting or exporting as a CSV file. Transferring patient data allows for unlimited storage capacity.
Prove Need. Progress. Outcome – All test results and training sessions can be stored and printed. Comparison to normative data helps communicate need,
progress and outcome.

Applications

Who can benefit from the Biodex BioSway?
The applications for the BioSway are extensive; here are just some of the patients who can benefit from this device. 


Older Adult – Fall Risk
Older adults can be tested for balance deficiencies, and training programs can be established to help them remain mobile or regain their mobility. The programs, while challenging and effective, have been designed to be fun and encourage compliance and success. The portability of the BioSway allows the testing and training to be done either "in-facility" or on an outpatient, home care situation.

Utilizing the CTSIB capabilities of the BioSway, clinicians can test patients and compare balance test results to normative data.


Neurological/Parkinson's and Stroke Patients

The clinician can safely assess balance and stability and begin to treat and re-train balance and gait through progressive testing and training modes. Patients are motivated with real-time biofeedback while their progress can be documented
and printed for review.


Vestibular Patients

The Clinical Test for Sensory Integration of Balance (CTSIB) test helps to differentiate which sensory system (visual, somatosensory, or vestibular) the patient relies on to maintain balance. The BioSway allows the clinician to make such evaluations and begin to accurately address deficiencies.


Post Surgical/Amputee and Post Trauma Rehabilitation

The BioSway is a valuable tool when addressing balance deficiencies in post-surgical Hip, Knee and Ankle patients, as well as Amputee patients. Balance evaluation, retraining, lower extremity strengthening and weight-shift training can speed recovery. The post surgical patients benefit from evolving difficulty of the training modes and the real-time biofeedback. The clinician benefits from ease-of-use, trackable documentation and fast results.

Tool helps monitor kids' concussions

COLCHESTER, Vt. - Some schools like Colchester High School conduct baseline concussion screening tests for each athlete at the beginning of the school year. It is not a state requirement. There is some debate over the accuracy of the computer-based tests, which is why some parents are opting to have their children tested independently.
