Oxnard, CA based Motion Therapeutics, Inc. has announced its BalanceWear Stabilizing Garments at the ongoing Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers in San Antonio. Using the company’s patented Balance-Based Torso-Weighting (BBTW), a therapist can determine how much weight is required and can optimize placement of weights in the BalanceWear vest. By allowing for individualized fitting, the company hopes to better aid rehabilitation in patients suffering from balance problems compared to traditional therapies.
From the press release:
Current treatment for balance impairment and balance disorders include aggressive exercise. While recovery time varies depending on the patient, some require long-term assistance and years of treatment. By comparison, patients are noticing “same day” results with the new BalanceWear devices.
Balance-Based Torso-Weighting method was developed to correct and support balance disorders associated with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), brain injuries, Parkinson’s disease, and stroke as well as other destabilizing health issues. The BalanceWear stabilizing devices assist in postural orientation and equilibrium, abnormal automatic postural control responses, and directional postural control dysfunction.
