New Tool to Help Concussion Patients Return to Play Safely

July 23rd, 2020

The new Grand View Health Orthopaedic Center in Colmar will include new technology to help patients safely return to play and other activities after a concussion.

The Balance System SD™ by Biodex offers both static and dynamic balance assessment and conditioning. Used to assess a person’s balance, the system brings together best practices for concussion management. It compares baseline data to post-injury performance, helping athletes know when it’s safe to return to play.

The system also includes high-repetition balance training videogames designed to help people resume their activities of daily living.

In addition to concussion management, Grand View’s Physical Therapy team will use the Balance System SD™ to perform:

  • Fall risk assessments (in just two minutes!)
  • Balance assessments for people with conditions such as Parkinson’s disease and peripheral neuropathy
  • Stroke recovery
  • Senior rehabilitation
  • Balance disorders
