Bioness® Integrated Therapy System (BITS™)
Touchscreen Technology for Visuomotor Rehabilitation

Marianjoy uses the Bioness® Integrated Therapy System (BITS™) to evaluate individuals who are experiencing visual field loss, visual-spatial neglect, visual-vestibular integration problems, problem-solving issues or cognitive challenges. The BITS™ can be used to enhance and improve hand-eye coordination, peripheral awareness, reaction time, standing tolerance and cognitive training.

How does the BITS™ Work?

With an emphasis on visuomotor training, the portable touchscreen user interface combines customizable therapy programs with progressing levels of difficulty and the ability to record and track progress over time. The therapists tailor the program to the individual needs and abilities of the patient.

The engaging activities and auditory feedback make the BITS™ a motivational and energizing therapeutic tool, appropriate for use with adult, pediatric and geriatric patients at Marianjoy.
