BodiTrak is a ground reaction force pad that has incredible potential for use in rehab and fitness training. The board reads real-time foot pressures and shows graphical analysis of the center of pressure, duration of flight time, impact forces, duration of weight-bearing, and more to provide instant feedback for exercise and recovery.
How will BodiTrak benefit me?
There are approximately 642 skeletal muscles in the body. This means that your strength and flexibility play an important role in your health. Your muscles not only help you move, but they support your circulatory and breathing systems. A stronger and more flexible you means a healthier you. Relieving joint or muscle pain and guiding you on proper strength training exercises are integral parts of our specialized fitness training programs.
Fitness training helps in building muscle mass, and it can also be used as a final step in a rehabilitation treatment process. Therefore, fitness training doesn’t just have to be for people who are already in good shape – if you are recovering from an injury or underlying condition that is causing you pain, fitness training will help you get back to your optimum physical performance.
Using the board to evaluate recovery in a scientific way, our therapists get to use specific information to help determine return to sport and re-injury potential. Starting rehab on the BodiTrak to learn symmetry and proper loading bearing can dramatically alter progress as well, getting you moving better, faster.
Our providers frequently instruct exercise on the BodiTrak to ensure proper weight distribution, forefoot and rearfoot loading patterns, symmetry through movement, and other mechanics that affect the benefits of an exercise. Instead of guessing that a movement looks correct, we can analyze the exact loading mechanics with validated feedback to ensure every rep is a good rep.
In more advanced uses, the BodiTrak can show proper weight-translation for golf swing analysis, push-off forces for athletic power, and balance and stability during complicated movements.
