We have invested in our Measurement & Training capabilities with this HUMAC Balance System

Simply put it is an innovative balance assessment and treatment tool that combines a popular video game balance board with cutting-edge diagnostics and treatments.

It is now available for our patients at the North Wales Sports Clinic in Pentre Sandycroft.

The HUMAC Balance System, designed by CSMi, couples a popular gaming balance board with company software to give patients a balance assessment. Russ Davison, Director & Chartered Physiotherapist, believes this versatile tool will be helpful for many different types of patients.

This includes the young and active, such as athletes recovering from injuries through physical therapy, older adult patients who have had joint replacements, or people suffering from vestibular or other balance- and motion-related issues.

“I like its versatility between patient populations,” Russ said. “We use it on our athletes, ensuring the tests and exercises are really hard, but it is also useful for our more senior patients who have had multiple falls over the past few months.”

The HUMAC Balance System is able to treat patients with a number of needs, whether it’s balance, vestibular and neurological disorders, or recovery from joint replacement or other orthopaedic surgeries, or concussions.

“It’s just a great balance tool for anyone,” Russ said. “I can even show you how much weight you’re putting through your injured leg as compared to your uninjured leg. It’s opened the door as far as balance assessment and weight-bearing tests and solutions are concerned – rehab and treatment protocols for the lower limb patient are enhanced especially when coupled to our Humac Norm Extremity System.”

One of the unique features of the assessment tool is a meter that shows weigh shifts. For example, putting more weight on one leg over the other.

“The patient or athlete can visually see themselves do that,” Russ said. “We used to just use mirrors, but that’s not as visually beneficial. You can have them actually feel what 50 percent weight bearing means. Or 25 percent. You can actually put them on there and have them feel what 25 percent feels like.”

Patient profiles that are individualised or customised are set up on the computer to track progress and results.

“We can test a patient, treat them and reassess them a few weeks later - producing useful reports that charts their progress” Russ said.
