Lower Body Strength

Lower body strength is a critical contributor to a balance disturbance. Testing will identify lower body weakness and, if necessary, exercise will significantly improve lower body strength. The Biodex can restore your strength for a more rapid response to potential imbalance mechanisms like uneven ground or potential trips.

Gait and Endurance

Independence is directly related to walking speed. Older adults typically display a slower walking speed, with shorter steps, varied in length. These are all factors related to falls. Senior safe exercise equipment, such as our top of the line recumbent bike and SpineGym systems can help strengthen and build endurance of muscles; specifically those associated with walking.
