3D Balance Testing
Objective analysis to eliminate the guesswork for both athletic and therapeutic applications
Balance testing for performance, concussion baseline and geriatric risk of fall traditionally has been limited to eyeballing or using a force plate. Eyeballing balance has inherent limitations because it is subjective, and force plate technologies only give insight on foot pressure change while providing no information on the body segment that is generating the most sway.
With Kinetisense, measuring balance in a standardized and objective way enables superior training and better patient outcomes. You will have access to a tool that offers universal data-driven accuracy among your clients and patients.
Balance is affected by a range of conditions. Accurate assessment and positive outcomes depend on objective, easy-to-use tools, whether the assessment focuses on geriatric medicine, athletic injuries, or traumatic brain injuries (TBI).
The 3D balance testing module by Kinetisense uses a single front-facing sensor to establish objective benchmark balance scores to enable accurate tracking throughout the rehabilitation process. Unlike force plate technology, which only gives information on changes in foot pressure, the Kinetisense balance module scores each segment of the body for transverse plane sway and frontal plane tilt. With this tool, you can identify which segment of the body requires proprioceptive rehabilitation and training.
Our system is inherently nonintrusive, does not require the patient to use any wearable devices, and allows patients to move naturally while they are assessed. No matter the type of injury or condition, our functional assessment solution is easy-to-use and universally accurate. From a balance test for vertigo to concussion baselining, our system is appropriate for any situation.
Keep track of patient progress with an objective solution that leads to superior patient outcomes. No other tool is as versatile, accurate, or easy to set up.
With simple reporting and measurable results, each patient can have a treatment protocol customized to their specific needs. By establishing baseline scores, Kinetisense makes it easy to identify where exactly balance could use improvement to allow for more targeted treatment.
Objective balance testing for therapeutic use has the potential to transform treatment programs.
1. 20 Unique Tests – With the 20 versions of performance balance test, including the Balance Error Scoring System (BESS) test protocol, practitioners and trainers can target their programs to specific patients and clients. With this system, you have the ability to assess a variety of balance tests on different patient/client types. Assess for geriatric risk of fall or concussion baselining for athletes; the applications are limitless.
2. Standardized Measurements – Although therapies and methods may differ from client to client, measurements should be standardized and objective across assessments. Kinetisense allows for objective measurement that eliminates human error and inter- and intraexaminer reliability issues.
3. Portability – Whether you are conducting balance tests in a clinic or at the gym, Kinetisense provides the same level of accuracy and reproducibility. Our single-sensor setup allows for high portability that more complicated and expensive systems can’t match.
4. Concussion Baseline – From full teams or leagues of athletes to individuals at risk, Kinetisense provides concussion baseline testing that enables high-precision balance testing to determine brain injury progression and rehabilitation over time. The baseline balance data provides practitioners, trainers, athletes, parents, and coaches with valuable information on the severity of the concussion and when the athlete is ready to return to play. Kinetisense practitioners and trainers use the balance system to baseline and assess the athletic teams and organizations in their communities. Expand the walls of your clinic or facility and engage new patients and clients.
5. Geriatric Risk of Fall – Kinetisense can be used as part of an intake exam for elderly patients to gain a more objective look at their risk of falling on a weekly or monthly basis. Balance testing can even be used to assess medication history, determining whether particular medications have affected the quality of a patient’s balance. These assessments can easily be done in the clinic or an assisted living facility. The valuable data that our balance system provides gives insight into strategies to prevent a fall before it occurs.
The human body doesn’t move or sway in two dimensions, so why should we test it that way? Kinetisense uses a single front-facing sensor to track a subject’s balance in three dimensions and provides an objective and comprehensive look into the quality of their balance.
Our tool leads to better therapeutic and training outcomes because it enables targeted, precise plans for improvement for each subject. With one-click reporting, practitioners are able to easily analyze and display data and results from balance tests.
Therapists and trainers can then adjust their methods in real time to address client needs. Click below to book a demo and see our balance module in action.
