About Neurocom International
Provider of diagnostics and therapeutics for motion and balance disorders. Patients stand on dual forceplates (footpads) while a computer controls motors which cause the forceplates and field of view to shift. This simulates combinations of environmental conditions. While the patient adjusts his balance to compensate for the shifting forceplates and visual changes, the computer quantifies features of the person's balance movement. This allows physicians to determine the cause and degree of a patient's deficits in sensory and movement capabilities. A line of rehabilitation equipment is used to train patients with sensory deficits and brain injuries. Balance Master, the first product in this line, has several software packages to teach the patient different forms of body mass perception and control.
