Sense Wave Medical is used in prevention and rehabilitation. As a therapy device, it serves to reduce the risk of fall-rated injuries in patients, improve their balance and increase their sensorimotor skills in everyday life.

Sense Wave Medical is based on a hover technology where both static and dynamic values of the patient's balance are measured. The patient stands on a sensor plate. The sensors measure via pressure points on the sole of the foot the force distribution of the body in real time.

In contrast to conventional training devices, Sense Wave Medical's hovering technology makes it possible to measure weight shift in three-dimensional space and to carry out examinations with varying levels of difficulty.
