Enhance resident care, attract more patients, strengthen partnerships and prove better outcomes… in less time.
Because You Believe in Better Patient Outcomes...
This revolutionary music integration provides tools for physical and occupational therapists to enhance treatment and drive faster outcomes. The advanced technology built into the Gait Trainer 3 also serves music therapists by quantifying and documenting progress, proving the value of treatment.
Merge Music-Assisted Therapy with Technology
With our exclusive instrumented deck, realtime biofeedback and sophisticated analytics, the Gait Trainer 3 is the ideal platform for integrating music-assisted therapy. Using the Gait Trainer’s intuitive interface, belt speed can easily be adjusted to match the patient’s steps per minute (spm). Music tempo in beats per minute (bpm) can be managed to influence gait components. Biofeedback quantifiably displays step length, step speed (spm) and step symmetry to encourage patient progress.
While the repetition of gait training encourages lasting effects through neuroplasticity, music therapy-informed song selections facilitate desired gait patterns. The Gait Trainer includes a starter library of compositions created by music therapists that can be adjusted to a range of bpms without degrading music quality – even accommodating lower bpms for late stages of Parkinson’s. The system allows music therapists to upload their own music, and transfer to a patient's personal device to reinforce training outside the clinical setting.
The right music, the correct beats per minute and gait repetition helps therapists get patients better, faster. Documented.
Harness the Power of Music for Movement Disorders
Music therapy is the use of music in rehabilitation and medical settings to improve functional movement, treating such conditions as:
How Music Therapy Impacts Physical Rehabilitation
Those affected by debilitating neuropathologies respond favorably to Rhythmic Auditory Cueing (RAC) and musical elements carefully chosen to enhance functional movement. Music is shown to jumpstart the brain's neuroplasticity, reorganizing neural pathways to help patients regain motor function that had been lost to brain injury or disease.
Fitting the music to the patient synchronizes gait for entrainment. Walking can be aligned with rhythmic auditory cueing to improve temporal (velocity), special gait (stride length) and gait symmetry (left/right stride deviations). The qualitative component of what is done musically is quantified and documented by the system's computer. The pretest, comparison to normative data, and posttest results are presented objectively.
Biodex provides a manual, rehabilitative performance plan, and other clinical application tools to help you understand which compositions are best suited to various clinical categories, for example:
The Music-Assisted Therapy Package offered for the Biodex Gait Trainer 3 is accessed via USB flash drive that activates the music player software. A library of therapist-informed compositions, as well as various metronome beats and tones are provided. For those clinics fortunate to collaborate with a music therapist, the Gait Trainer 3 also accommodates custom recordings.
NEW Automated G-code Calculations and Impairment Level Reports – Increases efficiency and productivity, improves documentation of rehab effectiveness fostering continuity of care, helps with audits, efficiencies and reduces claims denial.
