BIODEX PRESS RELEASE: Lila Corwin

February 12, 2015, Shirley, NY – Biodex Medical Systems, Inc. is pleased to announce the release of the Sit2Stand Trainer, the newest addition to its Mobility Enhancement family of devices.

It is one of the most fundamental motions required for a greater quality of life and functional independence. The new Sit2Stand is designed to address proper biomechanics in order to provide the lower body strength required to achieve the sit-to-stand motion. In addition, it contributes to upper extremity strength gain to help diminish pain often created by upper body compensation for lower extremity weakness. >>
