Biodex BioStep™ 2 Semi-Recumbent Elliptical

If there is one piece of equipment for all your patients...this is it. The BioStep™ 2 fluid, elliptical motion is forgiving on the knees, ankles, hips and lower back... a natural closed-chain low-impact functional exercise. Joint impact is reduced because the user is not required to lift and strike their feet on the walking surface. By combining lower extremity motion with upper body, the BioStep 2 provides a total body workout in both forward and reverse directions, thereby involving different muscle groups.

NEW features include: NEW Movable armrests for added comfort and stability when needed, and NEW Seat belt offers support and security for patients with limited torso control.

The BioStep 2 strengthens the muscles important to maintaining function and is ideal for older adults, great for cardiac rehabilitation, and wellness/general aerobic conditioning.

Biodex Releases NEW Gait Trainer 3: First ever gait training treadmill to integrate music therapy

Merge of music therapy and biomedical technology takes a groundbreaking step for neurological rehab

May 17, 2017, Shirley NY – In response to the strong base of evidence supporting the use of music therapy techniques in treating gait disorders, Biodex Medical Systems, Inc. announces the release of their Gait Trainer 3 with an Integrated Music Therapy option. This is the first time music therapy has been joined with a biomedical system to aid in rehabilitating individuals with cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury, stroke and Parkinson’s disease.

Decades of research point to the value of neurologic music therapy for treating sensorimotor functions. Rhythmic auditory stimulation (RAS) and patterned sensory enhancement (PSE) are two techniques using audio cues in music to activate areas of the brain that facilitate movements desirable for gait. By combining RAS and PSE music therapy capabilities with the instrumented deck of the Gait Trainer 3, Biodex takes the first step toward bringing this treatment into broader clinical use.

Music for Quality Movement

Since the music used in this type of treatment must be specifically selected or composed for this function (or else gait detriment could occur), Biodex teamed up with the Movement Tracks Project to equip the Gait Trainer 3 with a starter library of music therapy-informed compositions only licensed for use on this Biodex device. Therapists can also upload their own songs, and transfer them to a patient’s personal device to reinforce training outside the clinical setting.

Hope Young, president and founder of the Center for Music Therapy, Inc. and co-producer of the Movement Tracks Project explains, “The idea behind merging the music technologies with biomedical technologies is that right now there is nothing to bridge the gap. And the music is so powerful in the treatment of these disorders . . . everything has to be done live by a music therapist. And there’s too few of us.”

Changing the Future of Neurologic Rehabilitation

Although the number of individuals being diagnosed with neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s and cerebral palsy grows each year, the current ratio of physical therapists to music therapists is 30 to 1. Using the Gait Trainer 3, music therapists will be able to prove outcomes with biomedical feedback from the Biodex Gait Trainer 3. This will help expand their reach to better serve this growing population through collaborative care.

“We can’t magically clone extras of us,” Young stated. “This device efficiently lets us take the best of our training, practice and skills, and have them recorded and then shared with the rest of the clinical team. It helps us to be able to see more patients with the amount of time that we have.”

Biodex Releases the First Motorized Lift Assist and Walker in One

New Mobility Assist is the first ambulation device to combine patient lifting technology with patient mobility. Designed for hospitals, rehab and nursing facilities, this revolutionary ambulation aid protects staff and gets weakened patients up and walking.

June 28, 2017, Shirley NY – Biodex Medical Systems, Inc. announces the release of the Mobility Assist, the first motorized lift assist and ambulation aid in one device. This assistive aid lifts patients safely from a seated to a standing position without staff support using the protection of a safety harness and motorized lift mechanics. The Mobility Assist is the latest in a line of Biodex products promoting safe patient handling.

The CDC’s National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) recently cited manual lifting and moving of patients as the single greatest risk factor for overexertion injuries among healthcare workers. Currently eleven states have enacted Safe Patient Handling laws requiring programs to protect safety of both patient and healthcare provider.

The Biodex Mobility Assist helps to reduce fall-related injuries by providing not only walking assistance, but sit-to-standing support with no lifting required from therapists, nurses or caregivers.

How It Works:

Battery-powered lifts bring a patient from a seated to a standing position in a biomechanically correct motion while supporting and controlling the patient’s body weight. As the patient stands, their center of gravity is maintained. Once standing, the patient can use the support of the device to start walking.

 “It’s so important to get elderly patients up and walking to avoid circulation problems and disuse atrophy,” says Ed Behan, Vice President of Market Development for Biodex. “Not only does this product ensure safety of patient and clinician, it gives the patient a sense of independence—which is the greatest motivation you can offer.”
