MOVEMENT AND BALANCE

Specific movement and balance tests include:

  • Modified Clinical Test of Sensory Integration in Balance (mCTSIB);
  • Limit of Stability Test (LoS);
  • Sit to Stand Test (StS);
  • Weight – Shift Targeting; and
  • Power, Velocity and acceleration.
FALLS RISK ASSESSMENT

Our in-house developed Falls Risk Assessment protocol includes a focussed balance history and specialised posturographic assessment to measure static stability and quantify fall risk, limit of stability, efficiency and speed and a lower extremity strength test.

POSTURAL REHAB

A 6 week exercise and physical therapy program suitable for patients with musculoskeletal conditions with a weight bearing component as well as patients with deteriorating stability aimed at improving the patient’s centre of pressure (CoP) in static stance and limit of stability (LoS).

GAIT TRAINING

Once stability has been established and limit of stability increased we work on stability during the gait cycle. Rehabilitation includes step timing, coordination, stimulation of central pattern generators and dual tasking.

POSTUROGRAPHY

I am currently writing a Posturography training program for Physical Therapists. If you would like to learn how to incorporate Posturographic testing and rehabilitation in your practice register your interest by contacting me.
