Balance and Stability Assessments
Balance and stability are critical components for completing everyday tasks and also play a key role in human performance for sports and other functional activities. A sway analysis provides an objective assessment of weight distribution and postural stability for the purpose of understanding how an individual maintains equilibrium and achieves balance. This type of analysis can be used in rehabilitation or sports testing to help improve balance, increase agility, develop muscle tone, and treat a wide variety of pathologies.
Noraxon Balance and Sway Analysis
Noraxon’s unified software solution provides a comprehensive analysis for static balance tests or dynamic weight distribution assessments to help clinicians evaluate balance performance related to concussion, fall risk, or other conditions, such as orthopedic instabilities. The customizable report automatically compiles a left and right average pressure print, COP calculations such as sway area & velocity, as well as temporo-spatial gait parameters.
Using any of Noraxon’s pressure distribution measurement systems and the user-friendly myoRESEARCH software, objective balance assessments can be completed in just a few button clicks so clinicians can easily capture this data as part of a routine clinical exam.
Using Noraxon’s multi-device software platform, users are able to simultaneously collect multiple types of biomechanical data from various hardware devices. All of the integrated devices are automatically synchronized and the easily accessible data allows for a quick but comprehensive understanding of how the human body is moving and what the contributing factors are. Our unified software makes it easy for users to integrate a variety of recording devices to fit any budget or unique application.
