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
