The Bioness Integrated Therapy System (BITS) is a software program which can aid in therapeutic process for individuals with traumatic injuries, movement disabilities and disorders of executive function. This therapy is also utilized to improve performance in competitive athletes. When appropriate, our therapists incorporate BITS as a component of the patient’s overall treatment plan.
The software program runs on a large flat touch screen, allowing the patient to participate in a more dynamic way than traditional therapies. It allows the patient to work on divided attention activities, combining gross motor activities and cognitive challenges to better simulate our daily lives for improved functional outcomes.
BITS can address patients challenged with:
- Visual scanning
- Reaction time
- Range of motion
The patient and therapist work together to select the activities or “games” and set the parameters of difficulty to ensure the appropriate level of
challenge and success.
Performance is measured continuously so that the therapist can make “real time” adjustments to ensure we are meeting the unique needs of each patient. Additionally, the program can track the patient’s progress over time.
BITS therapy is offered only at our 70 Butler Street, Salem, NH location.
