BalanceWear® BW300 Device

The BalanceWear Balance-Based Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Strategic Weighting Full Torso Device provides supplementary sensory information to the nervous system, helping to improve balance and stability in all directions of movement, giving greater mobility and confidence.

Flexible weights are strategically placed in the garment using a hook and loop fastener system according to the individual patient’s BalanceWear Body Chart Weight Locator, specifically tailored to rebalance losses. Click here to view our BalanceWear® Measuring Guide video.
