Proper evaluation of concussion includes baseline Balance Assessment, Cognitive Assessment and Graded Symptoms Checklist. Beyond the evaluation Concussion Health provides the training to address the rehabilitation of concussion. Staying at the forefront of the education, Concussion Health continually adds new opportunities for clinicians. A recent addition is the Visual Vestibular Functional Integration Training (V2FIT®), a continuing education course focusing on the functional integration of the visual and vestibular symptoms, including how to examine, evaluate and implement therapy strategies into a rehabilitation plan based on clinical findings.
By combining Biodex Balance Assessment with Concussion Health’s extensive education offerings, practitioners will be better able to understand the rehabilitation component of a concussion program, and be able to offer a truly comprehensive program for concussion management.
“Our goal in expanding this partnership with Concussion Health is to provide our customers with both the assessment and the education on how to take the findings from an assessment and put them into a comprehensive care plan, so they may become the premier concussion rehabilitation facility in their area,” states Don Gronachan, Vice President, Physical Medicine Sales.
Biodex manufactures the testing and rehabilitation balance devices necessary to measure the elements of balance before and after an injury occurs.
