Biodex Unweighing System
Recovering from an injury, surgery or replacement often involves extensive
rehabilitation that has to start as quickly as possible. However, many
patients are not ready for the stress of an extensive exercise regimen.
That is where the Biodex Unweighing System® comes in.
The Biodex Unweighing System, which is in place at the Outpatient Rehabilitation
Care Centers on the Brunswick and Camden campuses, allows a patient to
put less weight on his or her injuries while performing rehabilitative
exercises in a safe, secure, upright position.
How Does It Work?
During the initial visit, one of the Health System's therapists will
fit the patient into the Biodex Unweighing System, developing an overall
program best suited to his or her unique needs. At the beginning of therapy,
as much as 40 percent of a patient's weight will be supported, with
weight being gradually added as the injury improves.
Because of the reduced weight, injured areas will support weight-bearing
activities faster and range of motion will be restored sooner. Best of
all, because our therapists and trainers are not devoting all their time
to physically supporting patients during their workouts, they can concentrate
on proper body movement.
