BalanceWear® is a non-invasive, wearable balance-stabilizing orthosis/garment indicated for individuals with balance and mobility issues. If you feel unsteady, have fear of falling or have fallen, BalanceWear may be of benefit to you.
Balance disorders are a result of many conditions including aging, neurological conditions such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, ataxia, neuropathy, infirmity, and stroke. Balance disorders can also be a result of back surgery and other orthopedic issues. Motion Therapeutics’ patented Balance-Based Torso-Weighting® (BBTW®) was developed to provide help to patients with a variety of mobility disorders including balance problems.
BalanceWear was invented by a physical therapist after a series of observations during her work with patients suffering postural instability and balance problems. Cindy Gibson Horn, PT created BalanceWear for patients challenged with loss of balance and mobility. She created and developed the patented balance assessment technology protocol known as Balance-Based Torso-Weighting® (BBTW®) and the patented product known as BalanceWear.
