Reverse Engineering

Product: The Balance Master
Company: Niagra Healthcare

The Balance Master – a unique and ingenious exercise machine to help rehabilitation after lower-limb injury or loss – was acquired by Niagra Healthcare in mid 2007.

Their ultimate objective? To make a great product even better.

Their first requirement? To deeply understand every part of what they currently had.


– Industrial Design
– Reverse Engineering
– CAD Design


Design Reality were chosen to perform a comprehensive reverse-engineering of the Balance Master machine. Using state-of-the-art measuring techniques, we measured and documented each component.

The Balance Master was then re-created in SolidWorks CAD package.

Niagra were so happy with our work that we’re now working with them on their improvement programme.
