SMART EquiTest®  and SMART Balance Master®

Developed by NEUROCOM® International, Inc.

By combining traditional physical therapy techniques with the most advanced methods in balance restoration, Star's Balance and Performance Center can make a difference in the lives of people with inner-ear, neurological, muscular, and orthopedic problems. 

 

                       

From helping the elderly reduce their risk of falling, rehabilitating individuals whose livelihoods depend on being physically steady and fit to return to work, to retraining athletes who want to improve their balance and coordination.

      

 

From the onset of injury to recovery, people of all ages and walks of life can benefit from the clinically-proven technology used at Star's Balance and Performance Center. It evaluates and trains patients with a range of balance, postural and mobility problems:

bullet

Neurologic: stroke, head injury, spinal cord injury, vestibular dysfunction, Parkinson's Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Cerebral Palsy and peripheral neuropathy

bullet

Orthopedic: knee, ankle, hip injury, hip replacement, back and neck injury
