What is the SportsAT™ Software?

SportsAT™ software is easy-to-use, requiring no clinical expertise to operate the system. It encompasses all of the tools needed for complete balance assessments:

  • Collect baseline data to monitor improvements due to rehabilitation
  • Evaluate chronic ankle instabilities with the time-to-boundary calculation
  • Easily identify asymmetries through weight distribution
  • Identify various origins of imbalances with the Spectral Sway analysis

An Educational Tool for Patients & Students

SportsAT is a valuable educational tool that can be used in the classroom or with patients to show effects of movement and aid in rehabilitation. Powerful biofeedback provided by the SportsAT software helps users connect the effects of their movements and encourages compliance with rehabilitation programs.

Better Balance Essentials - All the Tools Needed for Complete Balance Testing

By providing unmatched data and quantitative measurements, SportsAT can transform your balance and lower extremity assessments.

  • The Balance Compass™ is a balance training tool to rehab, monitor progress, and engage patients
    • Objectively assess stability through Center of Force (CoF) movement and veolicities
    • Perform stability assessments by evaluating the area of Ellipse with a 95% confidence interval
  • Real-time visual feedback helps patients achieve stability
  • Collect baseline balance data, then re-test once rehabilitation is complete
  • Identify postural control strategies in patients with balance problems
  • Look at the visual, vestibular/somatosensory, and proprioceptive systems
  • Help diagnose what may be compromising the subject's postural control system

Objective Chronic Ankle Instability Assessments

SportsAT incorporates a new calculation used because of it's ability to discriminate postural control deficits present in subjects with CAI.

  • Evaluate Chronic Ankle Instability (CAI) with Time-to-Boundary (TTB), no additional calculations necessary
  • Automatic calculations of the minimum TTB and the average of the minimal TTB parameters without the need to export CoF data to an external software analysis package
  • Quantitative, objective measurement for CAI applications

Assess Concussions with Quantifiable Analysis

Collect objective sway data and easily compare to monitor improvements.

  • SportsAT 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 (CISG) to evaluate injured athletes for concussion and collect post-event neurocognitive data.
  • Validated by researchers, Jaclyn Caccese and Thomas Kaminski, at the University of Delaware, the BESS module was found to be in good agreement with scores from the traditional method.  Click here to read the abstract.
