Use PhysioSensing for several balance assessment protocols and baropodometric examination
modified Clinical Test of Sensory Interaction on Balance
mCTSIB protocol allows the measurement of static balance in four sensorial conditions:
1- Stable surface and open eyes;
2- Stable surface and closed eyes;
3- Surface instable and eyes open;
4- Surface instable and eyes closed.
Outputs with normative values comparation: Sway velocity; mean sway velocity, composite sway velocity; CoP alignment
Limits of Stability - LOS
LOS protocol quantifies the directional control and the maximum distance that the patient can reach with its center of pressure in 8 different directions: front, front/right, right, back/right, back, back/left, left and front/left. The distances of the limits of stability are calculated according to the height of the patient's center of gravity.
Outputs with normative values comparation: Reaction time, Movement Velocity, Endpoint Excursion, Maximum Excursion, Directional Control
Weight Bearing Squat - WBS
The WBS protocol allows observation of weight distribution in the sagittal plane with the patient standing up with different knee flexion angles: 0º, 30º, 60º and 90º.
Outputs with normative values comparation: Percentage of body weight for each angle
Rhythmic Weight Shift - RWS
Use the RWS protocol to evaluate the transfer capacity of the center of pressure rhythmically in the sagittal and anteroposterior plane, at three different velocities: slow, moderate and fast. This protocol measures the velocity in the axis and the movement control between two targets at 50% of patient’s LOS.
Outputs with normative values comparation: On-axis velocity, Composite on-axis velocity, Directional control, Composite directional control
Unilateral Stance - US
Use US protocol to measure the balance in four conditions:
1- Left foot lifted up with eyes open;
2- Left foot lifted up with eyes closed;
3- Right foot lifted up with eyes open;
4- Right foot lifted up with eyes closed.
Each condition has three trials of 10 seconds. This protocol also allows to evaluate the difference of oscillation (in percentage) between the left and right side with the eyes opened and closed.
Outputs with normative values comparation: Sway velocity, Mean sway velocity, Sway velocity difference
