This video demonstrates parts of an exam called the Dynamic Gait Index (DGI). DGI is often used to determine levels of function and fall risk. This person is wearing the BalanceWear Vest weighted strategically according to the Balance-Based Torso-Weighting Method. As you will see she is much better when weighted. Specifically notice the change in ability whe she is walking moving her head side to side or up and down. Notice her change in ability to turn. How do you want to move?
