An Exciting and Flexible System for Weight-Bearing Evaluation & Exercise

The ForcePlates are designed for maximum versatility in a wide variety of clinical settings. Combining multiple ForcePlates increases the evaluation and exercise options.

  • Four ForcePlates are used for simultaneous evaluation of right/left AND front/back weight-bearing balance. They offer both single axis and multi-axis exercise for upper and lower extremities in standing or seated positions.
  • Two ForcePlates are used for single axis measurement of weight-bearing balance, providing motivational exercise for the upper and lower extremities.
  • One ForcePlate is ideal for weight-bearing exercise.

Clinical Applications

The portability and modularity of the system enables the ForcePlates to be used in many diverse ways for patients whose everyday activities are affected by balance deficiencies or other problems:

Stroke and Neuro Patients

The real-time display gives immediate biofeedback which can be particularly helpful for those patients with 'pusher syndrome'.

The Activities encourage neuromuscular retraining to improve balance control and can also aid vestibular retraining for gaze and eye co-ordination.

Amputee and Post-Surgical Hip, Knee and Ankle Patients

The Activities encourage steady, flexible movement through weight shifting, strengthening specific joints.

Spinal Injury Patients

The ForcePlates can also be used for seated balance and trunk exercise promoting flexibility and motor control.

CRPS Patients

Exercise can be graded for desensitization therapy in pain management programmes.

Patients at Risk of Falling

The ForcePlates can also be used for seated balance and trunk exercise promoting flexibility and motor control.
