History of BalanceWear

During the treatment of a patient, the inventor of the BalanceWear Balance-Based Torso Weighting (BBTW™) therapeutic garment products, Cynthia Gibson-Horn PT, discovered a novel and effective way to treat balance problems. Research began 2001 with Samuel Merritt University, using Ms. Gibson-Horn’s method on individuals with multiple sclerosis. The results were startling. Today this patented treatment system is called Balance-Based Torso-Weighting (BBTW™).

Realizing the importance of where, how, and how much weight is placed on the torso, BalanceWear developed a patent-pending evaluation tool that enables the clinician to customize the BalanceWear garment to your body.

After years of research and development, BalanceWear, Inc. was formed to help improve patients’ balance problems. Professionals are trained in our BBTW system to determine directional balance dysfunction and strategically

weight the torso to improve control with our custom-fit BalanceWear garment. Patients acquire immediate benefit in balance, mobility and confidence. Using the BalanceWear garment people are able to train themselves at a higher level.
