Biodex Medical Systems Inc will educate on the importance of age-appropriate technology in wellness program design, during the International Council on Active Aging (ICAA) Conference and Trade Show, October 18-19 in Long Beach, Calif.
During the conference, attendees will have an opportunity to explore balance and mobility devices designed to help seniors stay active and independent.
Biodex designed and grouped the Mobility Chain technologies to target the fundamental “links” needed for staying independent. For example, the Sit2Stand Squat-Assist Trainer offers sit-to-standing exercise. The Balance System SD helps enhance balance and proprioception to aid transfer ability and reduce fall risk. The Biodex suite of products not only provides exercise, but can be modified to accommodate a range of fitness levels.
ICAA conference attendees will also have an opportunity to explore pre-designed programs targeting senior wellness, such as the Biodex Balance Challenge – an 8-week program using objective assessment and balance training exercises to help patients improve balance and mobility, explains a media release from Biodex.
“The goal is to help make it easier for these facilities to deliver a higher quality of life to seniors,” explains Lila Corwin, senior vice president of Shirley, NY-based Biodex Medical Systems Inc, in the release. “For true mobility, you need to be able to rise from a chair, stand balanced, walk, and reach for things. These devices and programs work together to connect the links.”
