Effective systems to measure and train balance

Force plates use load cells to measure our application of pressure when standing on our feet. The base of the plate is either firm or compliant. Thus, force plates can provide us with precise measurements of postural control under different circumstances. Postural control is important for our physical mobility and our ability to perform in sports.

Bertec® Portable Essential

Customized physical therapy

Physical therapists can tailor balance measurement and training to the specific needs of their patients. You can choose between several measurements and flexible training menus with many options. In addition, you can alter parameters in real time to modify the physical therapy as needed.

Portable physical therapy

The force plate can be connected to laptop devices via USB. Supplemented by the force plate's compact design, Bertec® Portable Essential can be transported to any location, allowing for flexible balance assessment and training.

Balance testing

We use vision, proprioception and the vestibular system to maintain our balance. The force plate measures our ability to use these inputs, using a very sensitive force plate. The force plate uses either a firm or a foam surface to measure the weight distribution between the patient's feet and utilizes normative data to ensure evidence-based practice.
