Sports AT™ Software

Objective Baseline and Return-to-Play Concussion Assessments Made Easy

Sports AT software automates a set of standardized test protocols that are typically used as part of a comprehensive concussion assessment program:


  • Balance Error Scoring System (BESS) developed by researchers at the University of North Carolina for objective baseline and post-concussion balance testing.
  • Sport Concussion Assessment Tool - 3rd edition (SCAT3™) from the Concussion in Sports Group (CIGS) to evaluate injured athletes for concussion and collect post-event neurocognitive data.

These software protocols ensure that athletes are always being tested using exactly the same criteria, regardless of the experience of the tester.  In addition, athletic trainers, team physicians and treating physicians have the peace of mind and confidence that they can meaningfully compare and trend their athlete/patient's scores to their baselines even over multiple seasons, and multiple testers.


Sports AT software uses Tekscan’s pressure measurement platforms to automatically calculate the scores. The software runs on the following pressure measurement mats:




  • Ability to test an unlimited number of athletes with results conveniently stored in a centralized database.
  • Implementation of widely accepted test protocols - a requirement of the NCAA
  • PDF reports of the subject’s test results and history are generated on demand
  • Automatic scoring of balance errors during various stances of the test eliminates inter-and intra-rater variability
  • Easy-to-use, no clinical expertise needed to operate the system or complete the protocols
  • One time purchase price for an unlimited number of tests, subjects and testers
  • No annual subscription fees
  • For added flexibility and convenience, Sports AT may be controlled through an Android or Apple mobile application
