One bad fall can mean a lengthy hospital stay, painful rehabilitation, a loss of independent life, or worse. The good news is that there are things you can learn to lower the risk of falling, either for yourself or someone you care for.
Do you feel dizzy, unsteady, and have a fear of falls? At our office, we can objectively assess and treat these issues. MedTrak’s FallTrak is an incredibly valuable tool in the diagnosis, evaluation, and rehabilitation of neurosensory deficits.
FallTrak’s Assessment protocols are designed to quantify a person’s ability to maintain balance while standing. Data is collected from sensors on a plate that the patient stands on and is converted to a printable report that displays the patient’s Stability Score along with other balance related parameters. The physician’s report also displays data of an age matched normal population for comparison purposes.
FallTrak software includes provisions for both static and dynamic balance assessments through the availability of diversified types of tests, test patterns, and difficulty levels.
Therapists may use the built-in training modes with a great deal of ease and flexibility, including the ability to design unique training protocols for specific patient deficits identified during testing.
