The CAPS™ (Comprehensive Assessment of Postural Systems) is the essential tool for any clinician who wants to offer balance disorder/falls-risk screenings, diagnosis and rehabilitation to his/her patient population as well as implement an effective, profitable fall prevention program.
The CAPS™ combines very user friendly, yet very powerful software applications with exciting new cutting-edge technology: our unique, self-leveling, three-component force platforms that are powered only by the computer via a USB connection. And when used with a laptop computer, the CAPS™ becomes a completely portable solution.
A complete solution designed for ultimate portability, usability, compactness and low cost, the CAPS™ Lite is our entry-level computerized posturography balance and fall risk assessment line of products.
The CAPS™ Lite is the perfect tool for clinicians who only need to screen and test for falls-risk, measure therapy progress, and document treatment outcomes.
Many providers need to be able to do more than just evaluate a subject’s balance in static conditions and in a “feet-together” or “feet at shoulder-width” positions as can be done with the CAPS™ Lite or other products on the market. That's why we manufacture the CAPS™ Professional, our unique and advanced computerized posturography balance and fall risk assessment and treatment line of products. But the CAPS™ Professional is not just a posturography product: it is also an extremely advanced physical performance testing and rehabilitation tool that can be used for a variety of applications besides assessing balance and dizziness, and for fall prevention.
In fact, in addition to what you can do with the CAPS™ Lite, the CAPS™ Professional allows you to obtain a subject's detailed medical history, with special emphasis on falls, balance disorders, hearing and tinnitus; to test your subject's balance in every possible combination of head, arm, leg, body and force platform positions; to get sit-to-stand analysis data far superior to anything else available anywhere else; to test the explosive strength of leg and arm muscles of subjects of all ages; to test your subject's Limit of Stability (LoS) in eight (not just four) positions; and to improve your subjects’ lower extremity strength, reaction time, stamina and more with our unique “body saccades” targeting modality.
