Bertec® Portable Essential

Customized physical therapy

Physical therapists can tailor balance assessment and training to the specific needs of their patients. You can choose between several assessments and flexible training menus with many options. In addition, you can alter parameters in real time to tailor the physical therapy.

Portable physical therapy

The dual-balance plate can be connected to a laptop via USB. Supplemented by the plate’s compact design, Bertec® Portable Essential can be transported to any location, allowing for flexible balance assessment and training.

Balance testing

We use vision, proprioception and the vestibular system to maintain our balance. Bertec® Portable Essential measures our ability to use these inputs, using a very sensitive dual-balance plate. The plate uses either a firm or a foam surface to measure the weight distribution between the patient’s feet and utilizes normative data to ensure evidence-based practice.

Bertec® Portable Functional

Daily activity exercises

The longer, yet portable dual-balance plate of Bertec® Portable Functional allows for daily activity exercises. Physical therapists can improve their patients’ ability to perform normal daily activities, such as walking and climbing stairs.
