When it comes to versatility, THERA-Trainer balo wins hands-down. It enables the feet, legs, and pelvic area to be secured in almost any position, together or separately, depending on the goal of therapy. Thus the THERA-Trainer balo is ideally suited to the needs of high-level dependency patients

To enable even patients with high level dependency to use the THERA-Trainer balo 524 daily, it is equipped with an electric lift. While the patient is sitting in the wheelchair, a safety belt is secured around the patient's waist and attached to the electric lift. Now you can use the remote control to start the motor, and the patient is gently "verticalized," i.e. lifted into the THERA-Trainer balo 524
