Gait Testing Table
AnonymousAugust 2, 2009 at 8:18 pm
One question for the ones that goes to rehabilitation physiotherapy,
Do your physio do any test to check the progress?
Mine was doing nothing until last Saturday.
He made a metal welding workshop built him a shaking table for gait or balance testing.
Is a 20″ x 30″ metal plate, hanging from a prismatic structure, using collar dogs chains.
Thank to this I could see the big difference in gait I have from one leg to the other.
With my left leg I could not pass the test (stand up quitly on the table).
I was googling for something like this but can not find it.

Here in US we have different objects for balance. Its more like a thick plastic disc with a ball in the middle. You place a foot on each side of the ball and balance on the disc. There is also the mini tramp, it helps balance and core strength. These things are pretty standard equipment in most pt facilities. You could even look online to order them, although they might cost abit to ship. It sounds like the board and collars/chains would essentially do the same trick.
