Dr. Sanjay Gupta Report

In May, CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta profiled Steve Ofca, a father living with MS. Ofca was finding it difficult to walk or sit without having balance issues. Even worse, when he attempted to sit, he ran the risk of falling. His biggest challenge, however, was easing his daughter's insecurity as she watched him suffer from his unsteadiness. Ofca's use of the BalanceWear stabilizing garment has been profound and provided him with confidence. Dr. Gupta profiles Ofca's story and the BalanceWear stabilizing garment he uses. It was fitted by physical therapist, Dr. Stephen Kanter with empowering results. Watch video.

Balance and the Elderly
By Cindy Gibson-Horn, CTO & inventor of BalanceWear

Falls and fall-related injuries can have a devastating effect on the elderly. The frequency of falls is increasing with our aging population. This video is about Donna, an 84-year-old woman with a history of multiple falls. She has had two total knees, a total hip, previous fracture of her shoulder and opposite wrist from a fall as well as other surgeries. Donna had a fall two weeks prior to her physical therapy assessment for BalanceWear. She related she is unable to get up off the floor once she falls. In this video we show a timed up and go before and after Balance-Based Torso-Weighting, BBTW. This video demonstrates the change in ability and confidence during the same session. Instead of the frail elderly person who walked into the clinic we see a new person emerge. Watch video.
