Today, proper evaluation of concussion should include baseline Balance Assessment, Cognitive Assessment and Graded Symptoms Checklist. By combining Biodex Balance Assessment with Concussion Health education, practitioners will be better able to understand the rehabilitation component of a concussion program, become recognized as a Certified Concussion Provider, and will be able to offer a truly comprehensive program for concussion management.

Glenwood continually looks to improve its rehabilitation services with new techniques and technology.  One of the areas of focus for changing the image of the facility was the way the rehabilitation process was being viewed.  “We were looking to move away from passive therapy to active therapy,” explains Dave Merkley, Executive Director of Glenwood.  The decision was made to add the Biodex Balance System SD to their rehabilitation program as part of this move in a new direction.  >>
