Bertec® Portable Essential
Customized physical therapy
Physical therapists can tailor balance assessment and training to the specific needs of their patients. You can choose between several assessments and flexible training menus with many options. In addition, you can alter parameters in real time to tailor the physical therapy.
Portable physical therapy
The dual-balance plate can be connected to a laptop via USB. Supplemented by the plate’s compact design, Bertec® Portable Essential can be transported to any location, allowing for flexible balance assessment and training.
We use vision, proprioception and the vestibular system to maintain our balance. Bertec® Portable Essential measures our ability to use these inputs, using a very sensitive dual-balance plate. The 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.
Concussion screening made objective
