The Left/Right Dynamic Balance Tool allows to measure the possibility of the patient to shift his/her body weight left to right in a controlled manner. It is performed with the balance board. During the test, the patient stands on the balance board and has to bend to one side for a certain degree and keep this position for 3 seconds according to on-screen instructions. After each successful attempt the next task is slightly more difficult, requiring more precise balancing.
The number of rounds completed within the specified time characterizes the balancing capabilities of the person. After each session the testing score is calculated representing patients balancing performance. We use the value of the number of completed rounds adding it to the time-left after completion of the last round. The time in seconds is converted into decimal numbers as a fraction of one minute, so if 7.3 seconds is left after the last round, it is converted into 0.122 points (7.3 / 60 = 0.12).
