Neurocom Basic Balance

The BASIC Balance Master® utilizes an 18" x 18" fixed force plate to measure the vertical forces exerted through the patient's feet to measure center of gravity position and postural control. It objectively assesses patients performing tasks essential to daily living. The objective data aids the clinician in effective treatment planning decisions.

Protocols:

*Modified Clinical Test of Sensory *Interaction on Balance (mCTSIB)

*Limits of Stability (LOS)

*Rhythmic Weight Shift (RWS)

*Weight Bearing Squat (WBS)

*Unilateral Stance (US)
