Sway Balance

Sway Medical is an FDA-cleared, objective assessment tool that uses the built-in accelerometer in any iOS mobile device to measure balance, postural sway, and reaction time. With the device pressed against the chest, patients are directed to move through several postures. The data obtained are graphed and tracked for use during recovery under the guidance of your physician or physical therapist. It is recommended to take a Sway baseline test prior to the start of a sports season. When we have a Sway baseline test result available, we are better able to detect changes in any reaction, balance and/or vestibular processes in the event of a suspected concussion.
