How it works

Variable usage

Homebalance is an interactive system for home-based therapy of balance disorders.

This therapeutic system is aimed for patients with balance and motor skill disorders. It is also useful in therapy of patients after orthopedic surgery. The system can likewise serve wheelchair users, who can exercise on the platform in a seated position.

Homebalance is suitable for use in therapy of patients of any age category, in healthcare facilities or at home.

System description

As the system is intended to be used in home-based rehabilitation, it consists of low-cost, portable and lightweight components.

Game-like therapy

The therapy includes active repetitive game-like trainings. Standing on the stabilometric platform, the patient is instructed to move the displayed item by shifting their center of gravity. Tasks are also combined with cognitive training.

The therapy has a beneficial effect on stability, coordination, spatial orientation, length of reaction time, memory, attention, motivation for regular exercise and psychological well-being of the user.

The system can be used for effective home-based therapy, using “the virtual therapist” and for everyday objective evaluation of a current health status and progress of the patient. This data can also be collected and shared to the therapist to control the patient’s improvement. The system provides fast and simple objective diagnostics of balance disorders.

Availability

The system is available for patients and health care professionals since April 2016. Clinical studies are being realized in order to objectively quantificate the effect of interactive home-based rehabilitation. We are looking for partners among healthcare professionals and in the commercial sector to cooperate on further development of this device.
