Biodex Gait Trainer™ 3
Unlike some of the flashy technology available on the market, the Biodex Gait Trainer is quiet, non-intimidating and let’s the therapist get in there and treat their patients. The Biodex BWSTT environment does more than suspend the patient – real goals are monitored and progress reported. Objective documentation, with comparison to age- and gender-based normative data, helps prove need and document outcomes to family, referring physicians and insurance providers.
The Biodex Gait Trainer 3, with or without BWSTT, is suitable for all rehabilitation pathologies. Biodex has recently published Body Weight Support Treadmill Training (BWSTT) with Transition to Over Ground Ambultion: A Clinical Guideline for the Treatment of Patients with Neurological Conditions using Biodex Unweighing System and Gait Trainer. The document classifies the neurologically involved patient, then steps the user through the various phases of recovery for profound, moderate and minimal neurological impairments.
Instrumented Deck – The Gait Trainer 3™ is the only treadmill with an instrumented deck that monitors and records step length, step speed and right-to-left time distribution (step symmetry).
Open Platform – enables patient access for therapist manipulations and accommodates BWSTT with the Biodex Unweighing System.
Objective Documentation – Exercise Summary and Progress Reports track progress and document outcomes – ideal for insurance reimbursement. Show need, progress and outcome for specific gait parameters, including:
– Average walking speed over time
– Total exercise time
– Total distance and steps taken
– Average step length: RT vs. LT
– Step length variablity: RT vs. LT
– Time on each foot: RT vs. LT
NEW Automated G-code Calculations and Impairment Level Reports – Increases efficiency and productivity, improves documentation of rehab effectiveness fostering continuity of care, helps with audits, efficiencies and reduces claims denial.
Normative Data – Age and gender-based for comparison to healthy populations for assessment of patient results.
Audio and Visual Biofeedback – Motivates patients with real-time biofeedback, prompting proper gait patterns. Biofeedback helps patients stay “on target” in each phase of rehabilitation; steps lengthen, step speed increases and symmetry improves.
Heart Rate Monitoring – Polar® contact handgrips (telemetry compatible) ensures proper training intensity.
Large Display – Features 12.1″ color touch-screen display, powered by a Windows CE operating system.
Multiprurpose Connectivity – Allows connection to larger monitors and LCD projectors to enhance interaction for visually impaired patients.
USB Compatibility – Accommodates external keyboard, a mouse, printing devices for remote operation and USB memory devices for data transfer and software upgrades.
NEW Patient Data Collection Software Utility (complimentary download) – Facilitates download and transfer of patient data allowing for unlimited storage capacity, reporting or exporting as a .csv file and import into Excel to run statistical analysis for normative data generation.
