SFmCTSIB

Description

The VSR™ provides objective assessment of sensory and voluntary motor control of balance with visual biofeedback. The System utilizes an 18" x 18" fixed dual forceplate to measure the vertical forces exerted by the patient's feet.

Objective Assessment Protocols

The VSR includes the following standardized assessment protocols for the objective assessment of sensory and motor dysfunction:

Sensory Dysfunction Voluntary Motor Impairments
modified Clinical Test of Sensory Interaction on Balance (mCTSIB) Limits of Stability (LOS)

The information provided by the mCTSIB and the LOS is complementary to Vestibular Ocular Reflex (VOR) testing:

Function VOR VSR
Sensory Input Caloric Test: Asymmetry, Weakness mCTSIB: Partial Loss, Severe Loss
Motor Control Ocular Motility: Pursuit, Velocity, Latency LOS: Directional Control, Velocity, Latency

By combining the results of a patient's history, physical exam and computerized ENG studies with the quick (less than 15 minutes) well tolerated VSR tests, the clinician can quickly identify those patients that can be effectively managed within the office and those that require further balance tests as summarized below.

Automated Documentation

The System automatically documents all assessments and training sessions for verification of patient progress and functional outcome. NeuroCom®, a division of Natus® automated reports.

Combined Clinical Report: The VSR also includes the Combined Clinical Report, which summarizes the mCTSIB and LOS data sets and provides a concise overview of the extent of sensory and voluntary motor involvement. Example Report
