Weight distribution before and after treatment.Weight distribution before and after treatment.

SportsAT™ software encompasses all of the tools needed for complete balance assessment:

  • Use the Balance Compass™ for balance training and screening
  • Evaluate chronic ankle instabilities with the time-to-boundary calculation (learn more here)
  • Objectively assess stability through Center of Force (CoF) movement and velocities
  • Easily identify asymmetries through weight distribution
  • Identify various origins of imbalances with the Spectral Sway analysis

Concussion Assessments with SportsAT

  • 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 (CIGS) to evaluate injured athletes for concussion and collect post-event neurocognitive data.

This software offers:

  • Objective testing to ensure that athletes are always being tested using exactly the same criteria, regardless of the tester
  • Meaningful comparisons and trends with  athlete/patient's scores to baselines 
  • Uses can range over multiple seasons, and multiple testers

SportsAT software uses Tekscan’s pressure measurement platforms to automatically calculate the scores:

  • MobileMat® - Our newest mat offering, the durable platform and enclosed electronics make these mat options highly portable with no set up time.

Baseline BESS Testing with SportsAT

Researchers, Jaclyn Caccese and Thomas Kaminski, at the University of Delaware compared traditional observational BESS testing to Tekscan's automated BESS module included in the SportsAT Software.

Using 111 NCAA Division-I student-athletes, three trained observers compared observational scores to those automatically calculated using Tekscan's BESS software module for the six stances. Tekscan's automated BESS module was found to be in good agreement with scores from the traditional method.  Click here (link is external) to read the abstract.
