Normal balance requires the integration of three sensory systems; visual, vestibular (inner ear), and somatosensory (skin, muscle, tendon, and joint sensations). Balance is maintained through a complex process involving sensory detection of body movement, integration of sensorimotor information within the central nervous system (CNS), and execution of appropriate musculoskeletal responses.Read more
CAREN (Computer Assisted Rehabilitation Environment) offers an integrated solution for stability and balance related disorders. CAREN supports the use of therapeutically constructed Virtual Reality (VR) applications using real-time feedback. Dedicated assessment applications are used for objective and quantitative measurements, while motivating exercise activities help to train impaired balance control and stability. Balance (or static postural stability) and dynamic stability are key features in many therapeutic programs. Many patients with neurological disorders experience difficulties in balance and stability control, potentially restricting a healthy active lifestyle. Impaired balance and stability is often also the cause of falls, with devastating consequences like extensive rehabilitation programs or even hospitalization. CAREN can measure and improve postural stability and balance control. Read more
Motion Equilibrium Reprocessing Therapy (MERT) can be used in all patients who need to be treated for maintainance of balance like appears in non- progressive vestibular , motor and neurological conditions. MERT is the most advanced habituation therapy for patients with non- progressive vestibular disease. Read more
CAREN (Computer Assisted Rehabilitation Environment) diagnostic abilities are appropriate for any person who has problems from a neurological or neuromuscular condition remaining after initial diagnosis and treatment.
The commonest conditions that are diagnosed and treated with the technology include head injury, stroke, multiple sclerosis, motor neuron disease, cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy, and a wide range of rare disorders and some with undiagnosed disorders. Read more
When you are experiencing ongoing neck and back pain, you may be willing to try anything to alleviate your distracting and debilitating discomfort.

ACL Basics A common and debilitating knee injury is a tear of the Anterior Cruciate Ligament, or ACL. This important structure holds the tibia bone of the shin in place, preventing it from shifting forward. during movement. The ACL is responsible for roughly 90 percent of knee stability in adults. Because torn ligaments cannot repair […]Read More (0)
