BodiTrak2 Balance Systems

Full and Modified Clinical Test of Sensory Interaction in Balance (CTSIB and mCTSIB) are designed to assess how well individuals are using sensory inputs when one or more sensory systems may be compromised. BodiTrak2 Balance includes a step by step wizard that leads the clinician through the CTSIB and mCTSIB tests. Using BodiTrak2 Balance with these tools provides objective data that quanitfies the clinician's subjective observation of sway.



Games

BodiTrak2 Balance includes three different games that use CoP to evaluate stability. Using the games you can bench mark your patient's initial level of stability and gradually increase difficulty in the games settings. The games are fun and engaging biofeedback training tools. BodiTrak2 Balance tracks the patient's performance over time documenting their improvement in game play scores.

Interactive/Training Modes

This mode allows the clinician or user to record and playback a session of up to 30 seconds. Center of Pressure and Vertical Force are displayed. CoP radar display is a selection to observe distance in movements. A Range of Motion box can be described on the screen to set a target for the user. A tone will sound if the CoP touches or crosses the boundary of the box. It's a useful tool for challenging a user during training to work to an increased ROM.



Effective and Easy-to-use

BodiTrak2 Balance systems are effective, easy-to-use tools for the therapist to assess balance-challenged patients. They provide biofeedback to educate and train patients and to document their progress to wellness. They're affordable, save therapists' time and patients better understand their challenges and the treatment plan their therapist has created for them. BodiTrak2 balance sensor mats are flexible and portable and can be used flat on the floor, on a step or over a balance board, air bladder or foam. You can even put it on the wall for upper body therapy or in a treadmill for more advanced assessment and training. Vista Medical has been providing pressure-mapping therapy tools for over twenty five years. BodiTrak2 Balance performance and capabilities are supported by more than ten years of published research.

BodiTrak2 Balance Software

BodiTrak2 Balance software uses a pressure mapping sensor to provide center-of-pressure and vertical force information on a video monitor showing the patient's movement and foot pressure. This data reveals their stability in standing, range of motion, acceleration, standard deviation and weight bearing from side to side and heel to toe. The center-of-pressure trace is easy to understand and is a powerful training tool, giving a quick, clear view of how the patient is performing the assigned task. Statistical data and graphs in the reports document what the therapist observes.

System Requirements: Windows 10, i5 processor, 8 GB RAM, available WiFi connectivity.
