Tips for Creating Your Own Spotify Playlists

Biodex wants you to get the most out of using Spotify on your Gait Trainer. If you are interested in creating your own playlists for gait training, keep a few things in mind:

• Some songs include instrument solos, preludes, or specific measures with time signature changes that may affect therapy for your patient. Songs selected for the DJTherEX playlists avoid these changes.

• If you do choose to create your own playlist for Gait Trainer use, we strongly recommend you choose songs that strictly follow a 4:4 time signature without deviation.

• It’s also important to limit your playlists to a bpm range of ten to avoid progressing walking speed too quickly during one therapy session (e.g. 70-80 bpm or 120-130 bpm).
