Novel balance rehabilitation and training apparatus to improve functional balance

David M. Koceja, PhD; Jeffrey S. Greiwe, PhD

Many veterans have problems with their balance due to conditions such as aging, traumatic brain injuries, amputations, war-related injuries, and concussions that require rehabilitation. We have developed a novel balance rehabilitation and training apparatus to help individuals improve their functional balance and minimize their fear of falling and fall risk. We performed scientific research on this apparatus to determine whether it provides the benefits for which it was designed and to show it works in a “real-world” setting. We confirmed the apparatus could be a valuable tool to help rehabilitate individuals with balance impairments and improve their quality of life.
