Step and Connect knows balance matters, as it represents an important health and activity related component of everyday life. Good balance provides mobility and instills confidence and keeps us doing the things we love. We need more options to keep our clients connected to what they love to do and decrease falls.
Every second an older adult falls, making falls the #1 cause of injuries and trauma death.
Good news, falls can be prevented with the right balance program.
At Step and Connect, we want to help you make sense of the multiple facets and complexities of balance and gait so that you can effectively address the impairments and achieve optimal performance and functional mobility.
We are here to help you serve your clients by providing specialized balance training and the tools for fall prevention through our innovative products, programs, education and exercises.
Courses and specialized programs
"When I am tired, I can hear the click-click from the exercises using Balance Matters, reminding me to return back to my natural ‘good’ walk. It’s important for me to keep up with my grandchildren."
"There are physical therapists, and there are physical therapists – and then there is Erica DeMarch. She is in a class by herself because of her CREATIVITY. She constantly reads and learns new ways of treating PD patients and avoids patient boredom. Her creativity is very evident in her development of Balance Matters which, while not easy for the patient to master, is very effective improving gait and balance. My own balance improved so markedly after using the “Mat” that I was able to traverse steep cobblestone roads on a recent trip without difficulty. My boxing also improved. I anticipate this is only the beginning of the development of other creative approaches by Erica for the treatment of patients with a wide variety of disorders requiring physical therapy."
“The Balance Matters system allows me to train my clients at a high intensity, providing them the feedback they require to achieve their highest goals. The system is easy and convenient and travels well. Above all it creates a fun activity that engages and motivates my clients to do and achieve more. Thank you, Erica for a great product that gets what the client and therapist need."
