Patients with cerebellar bleed have a difficult road in rehab. However, I just heard from one of the therapists who treats neuro patients that she helped a patient with a cerebellar bleed in Acute Rehab with BalanceWear. He was using a front wheeled waker with very ataxic gait. After BalanceWear minimal gait ataxia and two days later walking with moderate independendance. His discharge date move up two weeks from three weeks to one week. WOW! This is great for the patient and the family. It also decreases the cost of care!

Early intervention of trunk stability may be the reason this was so successful. Ask your therapist if they know about Balance-Based Torso-Weighting and BalanceWear.
