BalancePro

BalancePro was jointly designed and developed by researchers at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centers, Toronto Rehabilitation Institute, University of Toronto and Wilfrid Laurier University, with support from the Canadian Institutes of Health and the U.S. National Institutes of Health. BalancePro features a specially designed ridge around its perimeter to stimulate and enhance foot plantar-surface (sole) sensation and therefore, enhance one’s balance and reduce possibility of falls. Such stimulation and enhancement have been clinically-proven to be sustainable.

Knee Positioning Device

The Acquisition and Analysis of Bone Mineral Density of the Distal Femur and Proximal Tibia Protocol is intended for use with a polycarbonate knee positioning device. This device is made-to-order, and is not recognized by the Hologic densitometer. The device maintains position and prevents rotation or movement artifact of the patients’ leg during scan acquisition. The foot plate and knee elevator are repositioned using velcro attachments to adjust for the limb size of the patient. The positioning device enables reproducible scan acquisition and helps to prevent common movement artifacts among individuals with spinal cord injury or other mobility impairments. Additional velcro strapping, to aid in patient positioning, can be ordered separately, if needed.
