Falls represent a considerable liability issue in medical facilities including both hospitals and doctor’s offices. Therefore, understanding the fall risk of your patients is more imperative now than ever.
The BTrackS™ Assess Balance System is the first affordable, objective force-plate testing system allowing hospitals to obtain a computerized balance and fall risk assessment in minutes. BTrackS™ is the perfect objective testing system to complement existing fall risk questionnaires used at many hospitals.
When a patient is tested by the BTrackS™ Assess Balance System their postural sway is measured in centimeters by sophisticated sensors located in the BTrackS™ Balance Plate. After the test is completed the patient’s fall risk is assessed as Low, Moderate or High depending on how many centimeters they swayed. These assessment levels have been developed after two years of collecting over 17,000 testing results from around the United States.
The Low, Moderate and High assessment levels map directly into National Health Statistics regarding age related fall risk and offer Hospitals and Physicians an affordable tool to aid in fall risk analysis. The BTrackS™ Assess Balance System is available for just $1700.00 and may be reimbursed through various health insurance providers.
