Press Release 

Peoria IL, 5.22.23 VirtuSense Technologies, a leading provider of sensor-based technology solutions for healthcare, has released a new promotional video showcasing the effectiveness of its VSTBalance system. The video follows Ken, a resident of Friendship Village Sunset Hills retirement community, as he overcomes balance issues with the help of VSTBalance. 

The VSTBalance system is a revolutionary technology that helps identify balance issues and provides real-time feedback to physical therapists and patients during an assessment. The system uses advanced sensors and algorithms to track body movements and provide accurate measurements of a patient's balance, gait, and function. 

Ken, a golf enthusiast, was struggling with balance issues that were affecting his swing. After a winter off from playing, he was not able to swing his clubs back without losing balance. His care team at Sunset Hills conducted a VSTBalance assessment that isolated what was affecting his balance. With this knowledge, Ken was able to rebuild his balance and get back on the golf course. This is a testament to how VSTBalance is a key tool for helping older adults maintain independence and function as they age. As Ken says, “You can’t just sit at home when you get older, you have to go out and do something.”

VSTBalance helps older adults maintain their health so they can keep up with the activities they enjoy, no matter if that’s golf, gardening, or even just walking in the park.   

The new promotional video is available for viewing on VirtuSense's website, as well as on its social media channels. VirtuSense encourages anyone interested in learning more about the VSTBalance system or its other sensor-based technology solutions to visit its website or contact the company directly.
