Melbourne, Australia – December 11, 2018 – nCounters™ Engineering Rehabilitation is a Melbourne-based Australian company that develops, designs, and manufactures innovative electronic biofeedback rehabilitation therapy and treatment devices for rehabilitation clinicians, physiotherapists, and occupational therapists. Their products are designed to aid in the management of gait, balance, and movement for patients following traumatic brain injuries, such as stroke, or lower leg amputations and other orthopedic surgeries.

“Our products aim to improve healthcare outcomes for patient with an acquired brain injury such as a stroke, lower limb amputation or for patients following orthopedic surgery where partial weight bearing is critical for a good result,” says Peter Barrett, Director of nCounters™.

A leader in biofeedback rehabilitation devices, nCounters™ has produced several innovative products that provide gait and movement feedback for rehabilitation purposes. Their products include:

The Portable Limb Load Monitor Touch, a biofeedback device designed to give immediate, modulated, audio and visual feedback in relation to a target set by the user or therapist with one touch on an LCD screen.

The Data Logger, a device that produces reliable, accurate, and objective data on balance and weight bearing during gait, standing, sit-to-stand and reaching activities. It measures swing time, stand time, stride time, step time, cadence steps per minute, % stand time, % swing time, and % double support time.

The Force Cane (walking cane), a device that provides feedback on weight distribution by using a pressure sensor embedded at the base of the cane. It has been designed to assist with gait retraining while optimizing walking function, speed and safety. Immediate feedback encourages the patient to either increase or decrease load. (Melbourne University is currently conducting trials for gait and posture using the Intelligence Force Cane.)

The Essential Angle Sensor, a device that gives immediate audio and visual feedback on knee, hip, and elbow joint movement.

The Essential Seating Feedback Unit, a device that gives immediate audio and visual feedback on seating posture and seated weight shift.
