Equipment Spotlight: ProPrio 5000
At both The Center for Integrative Rehabilitation in Germantown, Maryland and the Brain and Balance Center in Frederick, Maryland, we have some incredible equipment that we’d like to introduce to you. Over next few months, you’ll see them highlighted in our “Equipment Spotlight” as we share just what makes each piece so special.
Today, we’d like you to meet the ProPrio 5000
Dr. John Baker and Sue Paul recently had the opportunity to visit the Baltimore Ravens UnderArmour Training Center, and that’s where they met the PROPRIO 5000. It was love at first sight.
Here at the Brain and Balance Center, we like to call it “The Bull”.
This bellowing bull is comprised of a 36-inch diameter platform that can tilt as far as 25 degrees in any direction and at varying speeds. At the same time, a Dynamic Motion Analysis is used to measure the user’s center of mass movement. This computerized, programmable, multi-directional, multi-speed platform can be used for both reactive and anticipatory balance training.
In other words, this machine helps your balance during everyday tasks like walking or climbing stairs and in unexpected events like slipping or losing your balance. With the help of the ProPrio 5000, your balance, posture, strength and mobility can improve following an orthopedic or neurological injury.
