The BTrackS Balance System is utilized by our doctors as an all-in-one solution to assess and train balance with gold-standard force plate technology. The protocols for assessment include:
Balance & Fall Risk Assessment
The BTrackS Balance Test (BBT) is a general balance assessment providing detailed postural sway analysis. After each test, the centimeters of postural sway are calculated and compared to over 20,000 norms to calculate percentile rankings. In addition, a fall risk assessment of Low, Moderate or High is provided with each test result.
The Clinical Test of Sensory Integration and Balance is used to assess how the main three sensory feedback systems for balance (i.e. proprioception, vision, vestibular) function relative to one another. Integrated normative data provides percentile rankings for each patient.
Cervical Challenge Test
This test measures postural sway with your head in 11 different positions. The different positions expose specific vestibular configurations and performance on each trial can be interpreted and utilized for functional rehabilitation.
Limits of Stability Test
This test is used to measure the functional base of support using a biofeedback test. Patients stand with feet flat on the plate and lean as far as possible in all directions. The total area and the area in each quadrant of the plate is calculated in real time.
We are able to accurately determine weight distribution percentages in the left/right and front/back directions as well as the location of body center of pressure as it relates to global postural alignment.
