Help athletes safely return to play after a concus- sion
A decreased ability to maintain balance is one of the hallmark signs of concus- sion. Biodex Balance Assessment is used for concussion management
by high schools, college, and pro- fessional sports teams to unravel the mystery of concussion and to bring together best practices combining cog- nitive testing and a graded symptoms checklist in combination with bal- ance assessment.
Biodex Balance Assessment is conducted using either the versatile Bal- ance System SD or portable BioSway. These sophis- ticated measuring and training devices provide a performance baseline against which post-injury per- formance can be compared.
In addition to performing the CTSIB test, the new ver- sion of the Balance System SD and BioSway software now includes the option of conducting a modified ver- sion of a Balance Error Scoring System (BESS) test of postural stability, popular for concussion management. Both systems now feature the ability to create custom sensory integration balance testing that allows for modification of existing or the creation of entirely new protocols with both the CTSIB and BESS tests.
Biodex has made its balance technology even more user-friendly with the latest enhancements. Its new software and 15.6-inch touch-screen display provides intuitive navigation and an improved user experience. The new Microsoft SQL Database allows clinicians to easily store and retrieve patient data. And with new normative data, healthy populations are stored allow- ing for comparison of student-athlete results.
