The Biodex BioSway is a fixed platform, portable balance assessment and training device - bringing testing and training technology to the patient. The BioSway is a lightweight instrumental platform with a high resolution colour touch screen display.
The BioSway emphasises specific movement patterns, encourages proprioception and motor control and is ideal for vestibular training. Patients are challenged to shift and control their centre of gravity through interactive balance game and other rehabilitative training strategies.

As research continues to demonstrate the potential long term impact of concussion in sports, the importance of objective assessment in the management of concussion has become vital.
Biodex Balance Assessment for Concussion Management adds the objective neurophysical component that gives clinicians the ability to quantify the elements of balance before and after an injury occurs.
Biodex Balance Assessment is conducted using either the versatile Balance System SD or portable BioSway. The Biodex Balance System SD is a sophisticated measuring and training device for static and dynamic balance testing and training. The BioSway is a portable balance device limited with a static-only platform.
