About Our Balance Assessment
Postural balance is the ability to keep the body centre of mass within the base of support, so that the rapid displacement of the body mass may occur coordinately in different directions. This requires constant adjustments of muscular activity and articular positioning
Using our state-of-the-art balance assessment analysis systems, we are able to evaluate your overall balance both in natural stance and in gait. Our computerised analysis equipment can show you where the centre of pressure is under your body, how much your body sways and how fast it sways when your balance is challenged. Your data and postural control is evaluated. Assessing this information and your postural control can be used to recommend strategies to improve your body balance and measure your progress along the way.
Improving your body balance can be helpful in falls prevention and highlights the importance of balance assessment.
