A result of the broadened Preferred Vendor Partnership between Shirley, NY-based Biodex Medical Systems Inc and education provider Concussion Health is a more diverse and comprehensive concussion management program, according to the company.
Newly offered additional continuing education courses from Concussion Health include Visual Vestibular Functional Integration Training (V2FIT), which focuses on the functional integration of the visual and vestibular symptoms, including how to examine, evaluate, and implement therapy strategies into a rehabilitation plan based on clinical findings, per the Biodex media release.
The educational offerings from Concussion Health, combined with Biodex Balance Assessment via the testing and rehabilitation balance devices manufactured by Biodex, offers physical therapists and rehabilitation practitioners a way to help evaluate and treat patients with concussion, Biodex notes.
Among the products Biodex manufactures to measure a patient’s balance before and after a concussion are the Balance System SD and the portable BioSway.
“Our goal in expanding this partnership with Concussion Health is to provide our customers with both the assessment and the education on how to take the findings from an assessment and put them into a comprehensive care plan,” says Don Gronachan, Biodex vice president, physical medicine sales, in the release.
