e3 Diagnostics, the nation’s leading provider of audiology equipment sales and service, is pleased to announce that it has partnered with Bertec, a leading manufacturer of force measurement devices for clinical balance and sports performance applications. Bertec designs and manufactures Balance Advantage systems, a full line of clinical systems for both assessment and treatment of balance problems. Through this partnership, e3 Diagnostics will distribute and provide service for Bertec’s premier clinical balance assessment and rehabilitation solutions, including balance plates, computerized dynamic posturography equipment, and vestibular ocular reflex assessment devices.
Bertec's products have represented a legacy of excellence in biomechanics for over thirty years. In addition to helping clinical teams serve the needs of patients with advanced solutions like dynamic posturography and immersive virtual reality, Bertec’s technology is used worldwide by professional sports organizations and leading academic research institutions.
“This partnership with e3 Diagnostic makes it possible for our clinical technology to reach a broader audience, and, more importantly, gives our current and future customers access to a team of experts at a local level,” said Murat Berme, CEO of Bertec.
e3 Diagnostics will focus on distributing and servicing Bertec’s line of clinical products. These products include:
- Computerized Dynamic Posturography (CDP/IVR) system is used to provide the gold standard in balance evaluation protocols to isolate and quantify impairments that contribute to a balance problem. The CDP system incorporates Immersive Virtual Reality in its distinctive dome, using computer-generated visual stimuli both for assessment and unique training environments.
- Bertec Vision Advantage (BVA) is designed to evaluate vision problems resulting from head movement that can complicate balance performance by identifying dysfunction in the vestibular ocular reflex (VOR) per the Dynamic Visual Acuity (DVA) Test. And it measures the head velocity, axis, and direction where visual accuracy breaks down per the Gaze Stabilization Test (GST).
- Portable Essential is a simple, portable, and highly sensitive balance assessment solution suitable for any environment, including community outreach, satellite offices, and high-volume screening applications. The wide variety of additional rehab tools make this product part of a comprehensive solution that fits in any clinic.
- COBALT is a balance test for athletes. COBALT can be used as part of a concussion screening and management program by providing an objective measurement of balance control when relying on visual, somatosensory, and vestibular demands.
“E3 Diagnostics is continually looking to add to its portfolio of product and service solutions for its customers, and we’re thrilled to be partnering with the leading manufacturer of Balance assessment and treatment products,” said Don Williams, president of e3 Diagnostics. “Bertec clearly provides the most innovative, clinically advanced systems in the world, and we’re extremely pleased to complement their strengths with E3’s highly trained and responsive field team based in 33 regional offices across the country. With the recent discontinuation of the Natus NeuroCom line, e3 is excited to be able to help our customers seeking to expand or upgrade their balance-based equipment.”
