SAM is an add-on software module that provides an assortment of sway and balance parameters such as weight bearing, symmetry, center of force, direction and amount of sway, and pressure distribution to analyze balance and sway.
SAM™ is an add-on software module for sway analysis, which requires one of the following systems/software to operate: FootMat™ Software, F-Scan™, Strideway™ or Sports Balance Analyzer™ (SBA™) software. SAM is the ideal tool to analyze sway and assess postural stability by detecting and measuring key stability parameters that would otherwise be unseen by the naked eye. Sway analysis can help to uncover any underlying dysfunctions such as musculoskeletal and neurological problems.
Sway is the oscillating movement of the body, while posture is the relative alignment and orientation of the segments of the body. Sway analysis is a systematic assessment of the readiness and stability of the human body to achieve and maintain equilibrium. Sway plays an important role in the overall postural alignment and physical balance of the body and its analysis is critical in understanding how and why we sway in order to maintain posture and achieve balance.
Easily Capture & Analyze Data on:
Clinicians can assess and document pre- and post-treatments in relation to the patient’s sway, posture, and/or balance control systems. Researchers can conduct sway analysis and posture assessment studies to investigate conditions that affect sway, posture, and balance. The following are disciplines and applications for clinical assessments and treatments, research studies, and investigations:
