This technology objectively measures balance and limits of stability to predict a patient’s risk for falling. By comparing these results with standard values, we can determine the likelihood of the patient’s falling in the future. Computerized posturography also measures the visual, vestibular, and proprioceptive aspects of an individual’s balance, so that we can target specific areas of weakness with the appropriate therapies.
By objectively measuring a patient’s areas of weakness and improvement, computerized posturography can play a significant role in vestibular therapy and rehabilitation. We’ve successfully used applications of this technology with a variety of patients—from children who’ve overcome xxxxxxxx to athletes who’ve expanded their limits of stability to elderly individuals who’ve reduced their risk of falling.
