Ask US Questions Frequently. We’re here to help.
Who can benefit from PROPRIO® training?
One of the most used pieces of equipment in every clinic, the PROPRIO® Reactive Balance Systems benefit the widest range of people – from fragile geriatric patients at risk of falling to NFL and Olympic athletes seeking performance enhancement; from the Army’s wounded soldiers to Stroke patients or individuals dealing with Parkinson’s disease.
Because the platform’s degree of tilt, direction of tilt, and speed of tilt is fully programmable, both low level functioning patients and world class athletes benefit. Since the clinician is controlling the platform, it provides a safe, controlled, and comfortable exercise without the risk of injury that can occur with free motion types of balance trainers.
How does the PROPRIO® measure the user’s movement?
Research shows that it is better to assess a person’s dynamic stability using trunk measurements than lower leg postural readings. Other than the $1.2 million CAREN system, the PROPRIO® Reactive Balance Systems stand alone in measuring trunk movement.
The PROPRIO® Reactive Balance Systems feature a motion capture measuring system. A dual camera is mounted to the structure of the PROPRIO® and a set of markers are attached to the DMA belt at the user's lumbosacral joint. The motion capture camera measures the user's body position changes and records this information. The relative position of the markers record six degrees of freedom:
Lateral Trunk Flexion Left/Right
Where can I see a demonstration of the PROPRIO® Reactive Balance Systems?
We’re racking up Frequent Driver Miles every year giving PROPRIO® Reactive Balance Systems demonstrations throughout the United States. To find out when a demonstration is scheduled in your area or to request a demonstration at your facility, please contact your local Sales Representative.
Who assembles the PROPRIO® Reactive Balance Systems?
We do. We have a team of engineers and certified personnel who will install your PROPRIO® Reactive Balance Systems. We’re good with wrenches.
How do I learn to operate the PROPRIO® Reactive Balance Systems?
Perry Dynamics provides all on-site training to you and your employees. Our fully trained staff know all about the operation of the equipment and we love the excitement of the trainees as they learn the many uses of the PROPRIO®. And when you have questions or new staff, we’re only a phone call away.
Are the PROPRIO® Reactive Balance Systems patented?
Like all better mousetraps, we’ve patented our technology with US Patent and Trade Office (U.S. Patent 7,004,895 and 7,465,253). We also have foreign patents.
How much do the PROPRIO® Reactive Balance Systems cost?
Purchasing the PROPRIO® Reactive Balance Systems are less expensive than you might think. We also have Leasing and Rental options available. Our Accountants have prepared detailed financial analyses to show your monthly and annual return on this investment. Contact your sales representative for a price quotation.
What are the PROPRIO® Reactive Balance Systems?
The PROPRIO® Reactive Balance Systems provide an innovative, versatile, affordable, and more effective approach to assessing, measuring, and training balance, posture, strength, and mobility deficits resulting from neurologic, orthopedic, and vestibular issues.
Why are balance and proprioception important?
The highly sophisticated balance-control mechanism is essential to effective human movement. The key to quality of movement is proprioception. Proprioception is the sense of body joint position. Along with our vision and vestibular systems, proprioception helps us maintain our balance and protects joints in environments with excessive movement.
What is the difference between the PROPRIO® and free motion balance trainers?
The PROPRIO® Reactive Balance Systems provide reactive training. The user reacts to the platform’s movement, which better emulates real life situations. Free motion balance trainers, like wobble boards and foam rolls require the user to balance on platforms that become unstable because of their movement. This type of training is anticipatory versus reactive. Learn more about the difference between anticipatory and reactive balance by watching this six minute video: YouTube - Reactive Balance Training
